Parker Tatro was born an artist. Parker was creative since he was a very young child thru his natural talent of art and design. Born in Kansas, he lived there until he graduated high school and moved to New York City to study photography at School of Visual Arts. His talents have grown from there, to him now being a self-employed artist and interior designer. Parker specializes in people and lifestyle topics. He aims to capture people in their best light.
On a trip to India in 2008 is where he truly experienced the joy of photographing for the first time. That trip started him on the journey that led to studying photography in NYC. After chasing the opportunity to work at Condé Nast International as a Stylist Assistant, he transferred to FIT to study Advertising and Marketing Communications.
After studying photography, styling, and advertising in New York City and working in Los Angeles in Marketing – he decided to start his photography business in Wichita. He is a lifestyle photographer and abstract painter. He loves what he does and appreciates the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those in-between moments, and does his best to make everything with that in mind.
Parker currently lives and works in Newport Beach, California with his partner and mini-goldendoodle.

"Parker did a shoot with me and some girlfriends and absolutely killed it! He made me feel so comfortable and is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met! He was super great about helping me with poses and guiding me with the best angles. I’d recommend Parker to anyone I know and am looking forward to the next time we take pics!!"
