    Hi Mr Parker,

    My name is Anita Davis, and I like to know more about your workshop. I am a photographer in the making:) and constantly looking for inspirations. I photograph children and their families. Reading your description of the workshop above I am not even sure if I make the cut. But lets hope:) IF i do- I like to know if the workshop will be mainly studio based? ( i don’t have a studio ). And do you think that it can be useful for someone who mostly just runs around outside chasing children?
    Thank you for your time.
    ps: please reject gently:)
    Warm regards,

The JENNERIC Spectacular wedding, as it were.

hello world, This is the post where you will find my favorite images made at Jenne & Erics (JENNERIC) wedding. Ha I arrived, I shot, I played, I had fun, I experimented. They just turned me loose with no direction or expectations other that do what I do. I wish that would happen more often. […]

    Gotta love people who trust your vision, even though they have no idea what the finished images will look like.
    May you have 5 of these every year.

    Great work! Amazing vision.

    You have a gift.
    A gift to be shared.
    A gift to be nurtured.
    A gift that touches the hearts of your clients,

A beautiful June wedding at the Biltmore Estate

Hello world, Today’s post is a quickie but I think the images speak for themselves. This was one of those magical weddings that just shined. Everything just went right, on-time and brilliantly. We had a little rain but it just added to the beauty of the day. Thanks to: Of course our amazing wedding day […]

  • Kristi Church - March 26, 2013 - 2:54 pm

    Parker! I just love your work and I feel that I’m learning so much about your photography style through each click of your shutter. I’m more than inspired. I have been in the business 3 years now and was told by my mentor to look at 1000 top images a week. I came across your site and I’ve learned so much about composition and lighting–and this wedding in particular with the Biltmore Estate is just stunning!

    Your clients are so blessed to have someone with such raw intrinsic talent document their most important milestone in life….

    Thanks for sharing!

Letting go of control. Losing it? Perhaps.

hello world, 2 days ago (Wednesday) was the regularly scheduled day to chase and expand the artistic visions that keep flickering in my head. Some weeks it happens on a Monday, others, on a Tuesday, but every week I try to carve out one day that is meant for the sole purpose of feeding my […]

    Keep up the quest :)

  • Christina - February 7, 2013 - 8:20 pm

    I love the depth the camera/lens combo gives in these photos. I have to ask if you used zeiss lenses?ReplyCancel

    • Parker J Pfister - February 8, 2013 - 3:40 pm

      Zeiss ha!!!!!! No this lens is from a security camera. Just a cheap 1.7 CCTV lens. They do render and amazing look though! Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Christina - February 13, 2013 - 4:46 pm

    Boy did I jump to conclusions, here I thought you had retrofitted some vintage lens. I think this is cooler simply because artistry can be made from any medium. Like Picasso using house paint, still a genius.ReplyCancel
