Christopher Chan

Photographer: Christopher Chan

Shooting subject: Landscape, Travel photography

Equipment: Canon EOS 30D, Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens, Canon EF-S 17-85mm lens, Canon EF 50mm lens, Tamron AF 18-250mm lens.

Christopher Chan's portfolio is the result of his two passions -- travel and photography. Originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Christopher has lived in Australia for the past 20 years and is currently based in Sydney. Working for an international IT company, his work has taken him to the four corners of the world, with his camera firmly in tow.

Despite his extensive travels, Christopher believes that Sydney is still one of the most photogenic cities in the world. No other city offers the mix of urban architectural as well as natural subjects in such close proximity with each other.

Stepping into the flow
This was taken at the Mona Vale rock pool and it captures a surfer preparing to enter the flow of the water. A longer exposure was used to create the milky effect of the water while keeping the exposure short enough to keep the surfer in sharp focus.
