He has recorded 405 out of 450 species of bird that have appeared in Greece, most of which (370-380), are photographed here.

Since 1990 up to today he has been a professional photographer of birds, co-operating with the press, publications, magazines and online sites.
He has co-operated with all the magazines that had or have been published in Greece dealing with Greek wildlife and birds that have to do with Greece, as well as, articles of the Greek edition of National Geographic .

In addition, he professionally deals with Bird-watching & Bird-photography Guiding, accompanying individuals or groups  to Greek areas for wildlife, interested in observing or taking pictures of birds.

He is a partner of the Birding in Greece which is addressed to birders from all over the planet.

Chris target is to take pictures of the rest of the species missing from its log, in Greece or abroad and to publish a full book with all the Greek birds.
