A first from India

I finally made a trip to India. I had held off on traveling there due to the time commitment simply getting there. But this past week, I finally pulled the trigger, traveling along the "golden triangle" - Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. The above image was taken in the Amer Fort outside of the city of Jaipur in Rajasthan. Jaipur was, by far, my favorite of the three locations.

BenjaminParkerPhotography.com site redesign!

I am pleased to announce the redesign of BenjaminParkerPhotography.com! This it the most interactive and user-friendly version of the site to date. Utilizing hybrid hosting from both Squarespace 6 and 500px, I am now able to quickly upload, organize, and sell prints. For this reason alone, I am extremely excited about this launch. But wait, there's more...

With this redesign, I have added the option to purchase images directly from my Portfolio page. Simply click on the image and at the bottom of the page you will see the "Buy Print or Canvas" link. This will take you to my 500px marketplace, where you can specify the print size, mounting, and framing options with a real-time preview of the finished product. Once your order is placed, it will be printed and drop-shipped directly to your door. I believe you will be very pleased with this super convenient method of purchasing high-quality prints. During this weekend only, there is a 25% off Valentine's Day sale. A perfect gift for that special Valentine in your life!



Website Update

I just updated this website with 44 new images within all categories. You can visit the Current gallery for an overview of these new images, or visit the individual galleries for a more comprehensive experience. I truly hope you enjoy the new work. Exciting plans are being crafted for the future of this page (and my photographic goals in general) that I hope to share soon. 

The below image was from Venice. A gondolier, while waiting for potential customers, had removed his hat for whatever reason. This setting provided a perfect foreground for the below gondolier paddling down a canal. I'm sure the hat's owner was puzzled by my desire to shoot 20 pictures of his hat. I'd say it was worth it.
