    Hi Parker, really cool shots! My father was actually in Death Valley last week on a photo trip as well, one of his favorite places to visit. If you happened to see a tall skinny guy walking around with a camera, it may have been him… You might not remember, but I met you a few years back during a vacation to NC. I was with my mother and a friend, and stumbled across your shop and just had to knock on your door. Thanks for letting us see your studio. I just wanted to say you are awesome, I am so inspired every time I look at your images!ReplyCancel

2013 westward ho! 4/?

Hello world, I think one of the biggest challenge in making a photograph is giving scale. By choosing the right angle, the right lens and directing your light you can make a photograph that appears as we see it, or “correct”. It is usually not as easy as it seems. This is abundantly clear if […]

    Thank you for reminding me what amazing photography, your ART looks like. It is so hard to see out there in the sea of digital mediocrity.

Hello world….again! Yesterdays post focused on the beauty and power of monochromes. I guess today we will play with color but talk about B&W. Perfectly strange I guess. Whether I am shooting color or B&W on my digital cameras, I am always making a B&W JPG along side of a RAW (if I am even […]

    Parker, you’ve really outdone yourself! This is the most fantastic work that I’ve seen from you to date. Anyways, I wanted to say that I can relate to how you see things in B&W when framing the image, I do the very same thing. I started photography with B&W so it’s still with me. It doesn’t surprise me that you shoot JPEG ( if I understood what you said ) as most wedding photographers I know do. I have never met you but plan to some day ( if you come through Chicago give me a holler, I’d love to see what you and your camera can do with the most beautiful city in the world ), you’re on my list of people to meet before I die. Thanks for your dedication to photography, and sharing with all humanity.ReplyCancel

Hello again hello, Today I have received a crazy amount of emails, text, FBs and calls regarding yesterdays post. Thank you all so much for taking that time to acknowledge me. It seem that yesterdays set of images has set people in motion, gave them drive and permission to snap the shutter for themselves first! […]

    Beautiful images! My favorites are from Zion; I could look at them for hours and feel completely at peace. I went to the same places before WPPI, but my images were not nearly as good, but this is inspiration to keep trying. The solo road trip was wonderfully soul clearing and invigorating also. Peace!ReplyCancel
