Here's what Parish has to say about the California Photo Festival....
Why do you look forward to teaching at the California Photo Festival?
"I am looking forward to meeting participants of the workshops who share the same passion for photography that I do. I continually search to find exciting and diverse perspectives of the world around me, evolving and expanding my vision and that is what I want to share with the class."
Why will students enjoy participating in your workshops?
"It is exciting to push all of the workshop participants, as well as myself, not only to see differently, but to shoot in new ways, breaking not only my comfort zone, but every one's in the class. We will find ordinary objects and make them extraordinary through our vision."
