I have been a freelance photographer for over three decades. As a photographer I have been fortunate to have had two parallel careers. One as a photojournalist, the other as an on set photographer for film and television. I could not have done one without the other. Work is often sporadic, good months and bad. No sickness benefits. No holiday pay. No superannuation to speak of. This is not a complaint, as I have led an interesting life and every choice I have made has been my own. I have had the privilege of seeing and experiencing some extraordinary things.
Now, because of the recent crisis, things have pretty much come to a grinding halt. I have responsibilities, the same as all of us, and need to continue making a living (for the time being from home). I could start up a YouTube channel, attracting millions of followers, but feel I have a face for radio. Next best thing is to finally get around to selling signed archival prints. I have just updated my website – www.daviddareparker.com – and a large selection of my personal images will be available (with the exception of anything film industry related, for contractual reasons, or images that may be considered too sensitive to be sold as fine art prints).
And yet there is more.
In my Archive section is a gallery link to a box set I recently put together (link also at bottom of post). The David Dare Parker Collection (sounds lofty). The talented artisans at Fitzgerald Photo Imaging in Perth helped me put it together. Inside a cool monikered black box is a hand-bound booklet and six signed archival prints. It really does look beautiful (and expensive, but it isn’t – really). Click on the image at the top of the post and take a look.
