Parish Kohanim has been a commercial photographer for over 30 years and in 2004 opened his own Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta.  He has been a Canon “Explorer of Light” since l994 when the program was initiated worldwide; he is on an APPLE Advisory Board for the development of Aperture Software; and he is an X-RITE Coloratti Master. Parish is the recipient of dozens of awards over the years for his commercial work on major ad campaigns for many Fortune 500 companies, which have appeared in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Time and many other magazines.  His work has also been featured on the cover of Graphis Nudes, Communication Arts, Professional Photographer, and Digital Photo Pro.  He was named one of the “World’s Top 100 Photographers” in 2011, 2012 and 2013 by GRAPHIS. 
Parish’s presentation reveals a versatile and exciting career of over three decades.  He shares images taken throughout his successful years in commercial photography, giving “behind the scenes” anecdotes and revealing what it takes to put a major shoot together and execute it successfully.  Parish also shares his philosophy and passion about the art of photography, giving tips on methods he uses for lighting, posing, composition.
Parish has recently been working with Cirque performers and will be publishing a book on their incredible art, performing impossibly graceful feats of the human body.  The presentation includes a brief video and several shots demonstrating how true artists strive for perfection in any field.
Parish exposes the beauty in all things that surround us in our every day live - landscapes, florals, the human form - and challenges others to do so as well.
This event is free and open to the public.
