Meet and Greet team
30 July 2020. I am pleased to announce that, with effect from 1st August, I am one of the small team of resident photographers at Michael Lau’s excellent studios in Nottingham.
29 July 2020 rebranding to PARKES Fine Art Photography.
18 June 2020 - gratefully received the news that I have been awarded the Distinction of Licentiateship of the Disabled Photographers' Society (LDPS).
Hi! My name is Shaun PARKES (previously known as sparx) and I am a part-time, internationally exhibited and published photographer with a broad background in photography; my images have been exhibited in galleries and have been published, and one of my wildlife pictures won an award. Member of various photographic societies; the Royal Photographic Society, Disabled Photographers' Society, Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, Society of International Fashion & Glamour Photographers, Society of International Sport & Leisure Photographers, and Society of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers. I have Level 3 and Level 4 (advanced, Distinction) diplomas in photography. I am the resident photographer for the local parkrun, official team photographer for the local Rugby Club Ladies' Team, and official photographer for various other athletics and running events, and regular promo and gig photographer for a local band and other bands as required.
About me. I am in my 50s. Took up digital photography after a break of several years from 35mm SLR photography. Am partially disabled with chronic osteo-arthritis and scoliosis of the spine so I don't move particularly fast these days. I am an animal lover. I value good manners and good communications, and dislike discourtesy, including people who stop responding to messages; courtesy and good manners cost nothing! It is unlikely that I will consider working with anyone in the future, who just stops replying to messages.
My photography. General photographer, specific interests include aviation, sports, wildlife, portraiture, glamour, architectural and landscape photography. Am keen to continually develop skills in all fields. To confirm - I shoot all levels, from fashion and portraits to art nude. Higher levels possible by negotiation. I enjoy portfolio build shoots. I don't over-edit images, preferring a more natural look.
Please note that, unless expressly authorised by me in writing, images supplied by me are not to be re-edited or re-cropped including using filters on snapchat, Instagram or any other application, as this may downgrade the image and not be representative of the photographic effort that has gone into the shoot, and may be detrimental to my standing as a photographer.
Models and chaperones. Generally I choose not to work with models under the age of 18. I prefer models aged 18-21 to be accompanied by a chaperone on all shoots. Models under the age of 21 will be politely asked to provide proof of ID and age including one current photographic ID. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of the shoot. I am happy to provide full details of my name, address, vehicle etc to models up front to give them peace of mind.
Will consider other chaperones on the basis that they are there purely for the model's sense of security and peace of mind, and do not interfere with the shoot. Any costs associated with chaperones are to be met by the model / chaperone including travel expenses.
Copyright /Watermarks/Usage. Models may be asked to sign model release forms. Any images supplied under TF shoots will carry my copyright mark / logos for promotion purposes. Images are not to be re-processed without my specific written / emailed / messaged agreement but may be used on modelling sites and social media. I do not shoot images for 'personal use' and I will publish a selection of images on PP and Facebook. Models should assume that pictures featuring their image will appear on here and possibly on other sites too, but never in a way which is likely to cause any embarrassment to any party.
I confirm all shoots through PP but you can contact me on email address firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish.
If you are looking for a co-operative, easy going, collaborative photographer, with a good sense of humour, with many references commenting on my respectful manner and gentlemanly qualities, please get in contact with me. I especially welcome first timers (first shoot, first shoot at new levels) and I am very patient and do not hurry models. I look forward to working with you soon!
I WILL PROVIDE MY TELEPHONE NUMBER WHEN CONFIRMING THE BOOKING OF THE SHOOT. I WILL EXPECT THE MODEL / MUA TO PROVIDE THEIR NUMBER AT THIS POINT. I WILL CONFIRM THE SHOOT IN THE WEEK AND 48 HOURS BEFORE THE SHOOT. IF YOU DO NOT RESPOND I WILL ASSUME THE SHOOT IS CANCELLED, I WILL NOT TRAVEL AND WILL NOT PAY CANCELLATION FEES .
PARKES has 90 references; 89 recommended, 1 not recommended, 0 late cancellation and 0 no-show.
