Seattle Wedding Photographer - Cory Parris

About Cory Parris Photography

I am a wedding and portrait photographer in Seattle. I create emotional photostories. I love photography. I love all the technical aspects of f-stops, shutter speeds, megapixels, photoshop, and lighting. I love the art of photography in the composition, angles, bokeh, point of view, and the way the technical changes the art. More than even the art, I love the expressions and emotions that people portray in their face, body language, and hand positions. Along the way, I have met a lot of great people, gotten to photograph some pretty cool things, and had a lot of fun. I am very happy to have chosen a career in photography. I also have an amazing wife, Leslie, and three fantastic children. Life is good. Have any questions? Call me - 425.637.8852 Cory Parris

Self Portrait

Cory Parris

I’ve been working at being a professional photographer since I was 15. In the 25 years since, I have never truly done a self portrait. I’ve shot myself with my camera a mirror in an elevator going to some hotel room countless times, but not really set up the camera on a tripod, set up lights and taken a true portrait of myself. The reason is pretty simple – I like taking photos of other people better! Anyway, I just got back from my vacation and was itching to shoot something. So, I decided on a bit of a whim to do a self portrait. I pulled on my “artistic” glasses, flopped my new favorite hat on my head (I like hats), and headed for the garage. I set up a studio flash in a softbox on one side and a large silver reflector on the other. The background is just white seamless paper unlit so it comes out grey from the light hitting from the softbox. I set the camera on a tripod and used a lightstand to stand in my place as I focused. Here is the result!
