Chris Weittenhiller

Chris sammelt Geschichten. Ob mit dem Bike, Snowboard oder Bergschuh - unterwegs in der Natur ist immer der Weg das Ziel. Das Büro passt ins Backpack, so ist man in der Welt zuhause. In Wort und Bild werden Augenblicke dann zu Erinnerungen und die schönsten Momente erzählen sich selbst. Am knisternden Kaminfeuer, unter funkelndem Sternenhimmel oder bei glutroter Abendsonne zwischen imposanten Alpengipfeln.
