1014. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be an lnternational Photographer?
“I came to the United States when I was 18 and planned to continue my education at San Francisco State University in geology, which I had been fascinated with during my boyhood in Iran where we lived so close to nature. Early on I realized that geology did not interest me any longer. So, I took photography as a last resort, as my final elective. My photography professor was highly supportive, encouraged me and was a great guide and muse. Basically I abandoned what I came here for and thanks to him set off on a career that has been my life’s work and passion ever since.”
Parish Kohanim is a self-taught photographer with a degree in film, who started his career by photographing hundreds of advertising campaigns for major clients both domestic and international. His paradigm and commitment for his personal life and career is “to stay original, diverse, timeless and unique while capturing beauty. I feel privileged and fortunate to be able to spend time capturing the infinite and sublime beauty of creation. A gift that humbles and centers me, letting me escape from the excessive noise in our world.” Recipient of many prestigious awards, Parish has been committed to focus on his true calling to stay fresh and inventive to photograph a broad range of fine art photos.
