My name is Darel Parker, and I have been taking pictures since I was a kid. My first “real” camera was a Minolta XD11 35mm SLR given to me by my father when I was twelve years old. Like my dad, I’m a tinkerer so I’ve spent most of my life specializing in technology of one sort or another. I’ve been fortunate enough to make pretty good life out of simple curiosity and stubborn determination. Several years ago, I began to delve into photography more seriously, not so much as a career change, but rather as a supplement to my other skills, and because I really enjoy taking pictures.
These days, I offer architectural photography, high-end product images, portraiture, magazine, calendar and editorial photography, landscape and nature photography, and other forms of commercial photo work. Much of my recent work has been featured in magazines, calendars and websites, and I have a few magazine cover photos under my belt. Photo sessions are by appointment only. Please contact me if you would like to schedule a session.
I don’t offer wedding or event photography, but I would be happy to refer you to a number of talented and reputable event photographers who will gladly assist you.
