My name is Chris Durietz, and I am happy to be able to share my photography with you! I was born and raised in San Francisco, and I've always been very proud to be from such a beautiful hometown. I have always had a deep interest in photography from a very young age, and I was greatly influenced by the magazines of my youth—Life, Look, and National Geographic. My greatest photographic interests have always been nature and macro photography, so that is what most of my galleries are about. I also love still life in its many forms, and have the most fun photographing beautiful food. After all, we eat with our eyes, before we eat with our mouths!

I found myself going back to school recently, (graduating in 2010 with a A. S. in New Media Arts) and found renewed passion through the photography classes that I attended. I haven't stopped since. Currently, I live in Honolulu, Hawai‘i, where I find myself surrounded by the natural, tropical beauty of the islands. You can expect to find many exotic life and plant forms, as well as things more usual.

I hope you enjoy my galleries and will want to experience a bit of my vision of life for yourself!
