With the kids growing up fast there is no such thing as 'too many' photographs. A family portrait will provide images you cherish forever.

Senior & Prom Photography

The prom is becoming almost as big as a wedding! But it doesn't have to be prom day to capture that special time in a person's life when they are about to leave school and take the next step.

Brian Parkes

I became interested in photography as a young boy, borrowing my fathers camera to take pictures in the local forest of where I grew up. After finishing university my interest became more intense and I would take photographs whenever I could afford the film for my old SLR camera.
My photographic interests is based on people and so portrait and wedding photography are the obvious genres of choice for me. I enjoy capturing special moments and finding the hidden picture within a scene.

Gorgeous venue, couple but horrible winter light. Another great example of the value of using off-camera flash for wedding photography.

Reviews

Due to being part of a large dance school we often need a photographer. We run social and competitive events where parents may not be able to capture as many of the special moments as they would like with the quality they want.
We have used Brian Parkes Photography on many occasions now and have only ever found his photos to be of the highest quality – capturing not only the still photos but some great action shots also. Not only this, he is a very personable character and has been very accommodating to all our needs.
I would highly recommend using his services for any event. Cara Donaldson
Wow! What an amazing photographer.
Brian always captures those special moments perfectly. I would highly recommend Brian to any one. Steff Harding
Brilliant pictures, Brian really captures the moment perfectly Claire Thomson
