With my favorite (mostly) unpublished photos from 2012

So we made it (for now). That whole Mayan thing is behind us and the Apocalypse is still somewhere looming off in the future. Christmas has come and gone, two thousand and twelve is dead and buried, and the fiscal cliff has been pushed down the road a few more months. Yay 2013. With all of this in mind, I wanted to share some photos that I took in 2012 but never had the time or the excuse or the permission or whatever to show until now. So prepare yourselves for a veritable casserole of photography.

But before all of that, a short word:

Two-thousand-and-twelve has been my most busy year by far. I did a lot of work for my friends at Kinfolk (as you may remember from here, here, here, here and here), but I’ve also been hither and tither shooting for myself and others. When I look back upon the last 365 days, I can’t believe all of the places I’ve visited and awesome people I’ve been blessed to come to know and work with. It truly humbles and gladdens the heart. The pity is that the vast majority of shots must still remain locked up in the photo vault for one publication or another. But were that not the case, I still wouldn’t have space here to include all of my unpublished favorites from 2012. So I suppose the following will just have to do.

The dear people pictured below include: My most favorite Riley Messina, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Williams, my sister Joy Kim, Ryan Muirhead and Jarrod Renaud (photographer-brothers extraordinaire), Angel Taylor, Joe Lieske, Lana Nyman, Meredith Adelaide, Luke and Rachel Price, Tunde Baiyewu, the ever-talented Amanda Jasnowski, Alela Diane, Andrew Stonestreet, Tift Merrit, Jennifer Sullins, Kimbra, and of course, my dearest brother and friend James Fitzgerald III. There are many, many more who have graced my camera in the last year that must be kept tucked away — but only for the time being!

So. There we are. And without further ado, here’s to 2013 — may she bless you all heartily!

    Great selection! I really love these photos, and the subjects. Hope you have a great year :)

    Very inspirational, great personality.

  14. Parker. You have a great talent for capturing the sacred within your subjects, no matter how they look or the subject matter, commercial or for personal reasons, or whether it’s on purpose or not, it’s your purpose. Your subjects are beautiful because you capture what is sacred inside of them. This is something that we strive for everyday, and you are an inspiration truly. We don’t say that because your portraits look cool or pretty (which they do, btw), we say it because in our eyes, they really do hold something important in them. When you look into a photograph and see how each little piece, each face and tree, how it is all a part of God/The Universe, that’s beauty. Thanks for sharing.

    These are beyond stunning – I’ve only just done a quick once over but taken a mental note [with great priority] to set aside time to come back and truly appreciate and enjoy!

    When I was new to writing, I used to (still do, actually) immerse myself in the pages of books written by the authors I admired in the hope that their ability to thread words together so beautifully would rub off on me.

    Now that I’ve finally begun my attempts to figure out this whole photography thing (so many things to learn!!), I find myself coming back to your blog again and again to admire your pictures for the same sort of reason.

    Thanks for being an unwitting source of inspiration! Your pictures are so beautiful :)

  19. Christian says:

    you’re photography is amazing, I love the vibe!

  20. Brian says:
