Art Stories: Brian Parks

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With the holiday season in full swing, we’re reflecting back on this year that’s quickly drawing to a close. Art Stories has allowed us to share many inspiring tales of gifted painters, photographers, and creative minds in the Seattle area and beyond. We’re excited to announce our final artist of the year, Brian Parks.

Brian Parks is a professional photographer in Bellevue who has a natural talent for capturing the world around him. After receiving a degree in commercial photography and gaining hands-on work experience, Parks opened his own freelance photography business in 1984. Since then he has grown his business while continuing to serve the greater Seattle area. He works in a wide variety of commercial settings, capturing people, products, architecture, and food.

Aside from commercial photography, Parks also has a unique perspective on fine art. His latest personal project, Forged By Faith, is a series of photographs that portray Biblical characters such as Ruth and Jonah. Parks wanted a fresh take on capturing these characters, who have traditionally been represented over the years through sculptures, paintings, and carvings. His artistic eye breathtakingly retells their stories of faith and turns them into “timeless impressions.”

Parks’ stunning masterpieces are currently on display at Calvary Chapel Eastside in Bellevue, WA. You can also visit his personal studio in Bellevue. For more information please visit his website and social media.
