Today we would like to feature talented photographer Chris Marquardt. Chris has been in the industry for quite some time now, and has several years experience under his belt. His photography work is captivating and each shot sends a strong message. Apart from his photography work, Chris does a lot of teaching. In 2005 he started “Tips From the Top Floor” – a podcast all about photography where his voice reaches thousands of aspiring photographers and photography enthusiasts. In 2006 Chris started a series of workshops for the community that had formed around “Tips from the Top Floor”. These workshops give Chris the opportunity to cover new genres, from portraiture and street photography to landscape and architecture.
