Parker Fitzgerald is my idea of the perfect photographer. I’m sure he’d scoff at the idea of artistic perfection, but his style appeals to me on such a deep level. He inspires me to pick up my camera and try taking decent photos from time-to-time.
What’s more is that he’s from my state, Colorado. I can feel the rustic, outdoorsy feeling of Colorado in his photos. Well that and the hip, “I’m a sexy lumberjack” feeling incorporated by his move to Portland. How often can you say you can feel someone’s home in their photographs?
The above photos were taken from a recent blog post of his, showing some of his favorite mostly unpublished photos from 2012. That’s right, these are his unpublished photos. Oy vey. This is the first time you’ve seen me lust over Fitzgerald’s photos, but certainly not the last.
