A native of Southern California, professional photographer Chris Weeks loves to travel but has never found reason to permanently leave what he describes as the "ambient shooting conditions" of his place of origin. That seems fitting for someone whose work is as connected to the original intent of light as his seems to be. In fact, after I having had the pleasure and privilege of reading his responses to my questions, it seems to me that the same kind of decisiveness he describes regarding his place of residence has always been present in the choices that led him to a career in photography. Although he has had a camera to his eye since age eleven, his life has not been limited to career. In addition to being a photographer, he lists being a father, discovering new restaurants, attending art and photography exhibits, and spending time with his significant other at home as the things that make a difference in his life.
