Nate Parker

my first camera was given to me by my folks when i was a snivelling kid, it was some kind of consumer film cam that shot 110 film -whatever that means?, i took pictures of trees and family and chipmunks. then when i was a student in jazz school at the berklee college of music in boston it occurred to me that i really wanted to photograph the doorways of all the different apartments and homes that i was living in and moving to, but it took until the first popular digital cameras were released in 2000 that i actually bought a image capture device- 3mp's for 750 bucks. right then. first dslr in 2005, a rebel of course- started focusing on trying to make good photos, made mostly only panoramas for 3 years, which is weird i know, but that taught me a particular kind of compositional vision and dedication that was worthwhile. still laboring as a work-a-day-stiff i knew i wanted a full frame camera but also knew that i couldn't afford one, until i inherited a share of a boat which i promptly turned into the 5d mkii that im currently using inspired by the notion that i could shoot my parents in hd gorgeousness as well as having a massively gorgeous sensor to capture the landscapes that i had been trying to realize. another super important breakthrough for me was finally finding a software solution for developing the photos to my heart and minds content in adobes' lightroom 3, which is the best money that i've ever spent on photography. so then now you're catching me in a portion of my creative sign-wave where i'm chasing and refining my vision to produce better imagery everyday, if i'm lucky! so then here's to life and living which allows us to pursue our desires and long live the muse! have a nice day and thanks for looking- Nate.
