Welcome to Jeff Parry Photography,

Since 1997 I have lived and worked at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse in Pescadero, California. I have been taking photographs since I was a kid with the help from my father I grew up in the Bay Area and I graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz and have a BA in Cultural Anthropology. I manage a non-profit international hostel now, but from 1997 to 2003 I was a naturalist at the Pigeon Point Environmental Education Program where I taught school children at Pigeon Point, Año Nuevo State Reserve and Memorial County Park the natural history of Northern Elephant Seals, California Gray Whales, inter-tidal ecology, redwood forest ecology and local maritime history. I was for a few years an employee at the Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park where I helped the docents. I also volunteered for 6 years as a naturalist and docent at Año Nuevo State Reserve and Ranch Del Oso (Waddell Creek) State Park.

I have been surfing since 1982 but artistically I enjoy photographing Oceanscapes, long exposures, high dynamic range photography and time-lapse photography. I use Nikon D600, D90 and a N80 with a Nikkor 18-135mm, 70-180mm micro zoom, 500mm f/4.0 P and a Sigma 15mm lenses. I use Lee filters.

For my kite aerial photography with a fish-eye 360 degree lens I use a Nikon Coolpix 5000 and a couple of single string foil kites suspended on a picvac cross mount from the string 100 feet below the kite.
