A little something about me
My name is Sean Parker and I'm a professional photographer / time-lapse cinematographer based in Tucson, Arizona. I hold a strong passion for capturing the beauty in our universe so I specialize in all types of photography. But what I'm most passionate about and internationally renowned for is my landscape & astrophotography work. I've been featured in many publication, commercials, and projects with companies such as: Smithsonian, Discovery, BBC, LG, Samsung, Annapurna Films, New York Times, and more! I've always had an artistic side. Growing up I used to play music and take cell-phone photos of the places I visited, but It was only until 2011 when I found my nitch for the art of photography.
I also have a very technical background. From 2005-2012, I was in the I.T field as a computer technician so understanding electronics and how they work made it easy for me to learn my first digital camera. Before leaving my desk-job in 2012, I'd constantly strive to make a name for myself in the photography world and I'm currently pursuing my dream to become a travel photographer.
What they say about me
Sean is one of the most passionate artists I’ve ever known, and it is readily apparent in every photograph he takes. Whether it’s spending long, lonely nights in the desert composing gorgeous star trails or peering into the heavens and gradually coaxing out its natural beauty with advanced telescopes and computer technology, he maintains an unrelenting positive outlook and unmatched work ethic. Knowing firsthand the amount of work required to produce such high quality material, I have profound respect for the mental fortitude required for the journey upon which Sean has embarked. The true mark of a great artist is the constant desire to learn new skills and improve upon the last work, and Sean has these qualities in spades. He has built his incredible set of skills through countless hours of frustrating trial and error, and the amazing thing to consider is that his current output of stunning imagery is simply the tip of the iceberg when compared to the assuredly brilliant career ahead of him. I’m extremely proud and honored to have had the chance to work with Sean and learn from him, and I am confident that he will find success in all of his pursuits, for he already has laid his foundation as a humble, driven, and meticulous artist.
