    Brian is a great photographer and we are very impressed with his work. He is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with - we will absolutely use him again in the future.

    Brian was the perfect choice for our job. He knows industrial products. He is reliable. He and his van full of cameras, lights, and backdrops drove into our facility and he was setup and operational in no time. He is accommodating to the client, but offers excellent professional recommendations. A very efficient photographer who utilizes technology to augment his creative eye. Really thrilled with the final output. He saved our project!

    I hired Brian Parks to create a couple images for my copywriting services website and was very pleased with the results. A plan was well thought trough and executed, with end uses taken into consideration. Pricing seemed reasonable and final images were well produced.

    I am the President/CEO of a high-end acoustic guitar manufacturing company. I first started using Brian for product detail photography 10 years ago. Soon I realized that Michelle brought a terrific creative mind to the table as well. Over the past decade, Brian has exclusively created all the product images, both straight shots and artistic ones, for my company's magazine advertisements, website design, catalogs, trade show graphics etc.. Not only do the Parks help me put together some amazing marketing pieces, they are also the easiest people to work with. They have been very willing to work with me on tight deadlines and skimpy budgets. I highly recommend Parks Creative to anyone that wants to make a stylish marketing splash.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. While I've provided a wide variety of services over the past 26+ years, the majority seem to be product and architectural work. Also enjoying more lifestyle assignments lately.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. AVA Ballard: Photographed interior, dusk exterior, and lifestyle images for new apartment community. I suggested using motion-blur to keep emphasis on environments.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. When comparing photographers, it is difficult to weigh apples-to-apples. Anyone with a camera can call themselves a photographer, so look at how long they have been able to stay in business and ask several to see a portfolio of several images similar to your needs. Years in business show not only experience, but fair dealings to sustain ongoing clients.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. We produce precise, art-full, well thought out images, which will work well for a wide variety of uses.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. It is fun and interesting to see all the different great products and services people come up with and rewarding to help them succeed in promoting them!

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. A real photographer with digital capabilities may be less than 50% profit, perhaps only 25% if having an actual studio space, so consider this when weighing what a fair price is. Can a real quality photographer survive off a $100 shoot that takes over half a day when all is said and done? If you run the numbers, it takes more like $800 every other day to simply make a modest income, even without a studio space.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I went through a junior high program which was at a college level (color processing and using spotlights and umbrella lighting). I pretty much knew what I wanted to be at age 13!

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

A. My pricing structure is basically ala-carte so based on your needs as well as what I have found through my career is required to make a reasonable living. I believe in fair-scales rather than what the market will bear.
