About John Parkinson

John Parkinson is a nationally published photographer and author and is the recipient of numerous awards. He has been photographing nature and landscapes for more than 50 years. At the age of 12 he crafted a homemade light box and produced his first print from film exposed in his mother's folding bellows camera, a Kodak Autographic 2C. While serving a church mission in Hawaii in 1954-56, he became more seriously interested in photography with his new 35 mm Argus C3 camera (a gift from his parents) and a relatively new film called Kodachrome.

He grew up accompanying his parents on pleasure tours of the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado Plateau. With them, he learned to appreciate the resplendent beauty of nature and the magnificent scenery that often were just day-trips from home. In 1976 he modified his long-standing love of nature and landscape photography by erasing the "a" from "avocation," making his photography a full-time professional pursuit.

John's images have found their way into thousands of homes and offices throughout the world in the form of calendars, wall decor, computer screen savers, editorial uses, product labels, etc. Juried shows include the Salt Lake Art Center, the Museum of Natural History at the University of Utah, and the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah, as well as numerous juried art shows throughout the United States. The prestigious Springville Museum of Art sponsored a solo show of his work. One of his prints was selected for display at Nikon House in Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. Several of his large prints hang in the corridors of the United States Congress. Unusual uses for his images include backgrounds for the Utah Symphony Orchestra and on VISA credit cards. Thousands of bottles of wine carry his images on their labels. Numerous prints by John hang in homes and offices throughout the world.

In 2007, he revealed his interest in poetry by publishing Visual Verse, a beautiful coffee table book that couples his images in symbiosis with verse, including some poetry of his own. Visual Verse won two first-place awards in the most highly esteemed event in the publishing world, the Benjamin Franklin Award Ceremony, Washington D.C. (2007).

Now, John focuses on fine art photography creating beautiful prints from his most successful nature/landscape images.  He describes his work as "Documenting the Art of God Through Photography."  He and his wife, Diane, make their home in Payson, Utah.
