When did the interest in photography begin? All the way through school, I was printing, and in college I was studying architecture. For years, most of my photography was landscape and architecture. People were hard for me to shoot.
I just felt it was sort of intrusive, and I was embarrassed and uncomfortable. Then, about five years ago, I had some people come to me and ask me to shoot headshots.
To help out, I did a bunch of headshots and found out that I loved it. But the headshots I shoot are really more portraits. I just shoot them in the context and the constraints of what a headshot is.
What I love is shooting portraits. I started doing that, and it just turned into other stuff, and I really started to shoot seriously for myself and for some exhibits.
My personal stuff is pretty out there, but as you saw on the website parkerstevensonshadowworks.
This book that came up was kind of a godsend. Have you seen the cover?
Single and Happy Parker Stevenson: The journey of his life and career
Yes, The Jetty, very nice. I really started to focus on my fine art photography as a new career, sort of a new beginning of sorts. I have some ideas about what would make a good cover.
The book was released a few months ago. I went down to San Antonio where they had a pre-launch party. It was just great to be a part of it. Are there particular photographers you follow or admire? The only photographer that I felt really shot me well was Herb Ritts, and he shot me a couple of times. I think a lot of it was that I was just so comfortable with him. He had such an easygoing way about him.
I think Herb has always been in the back of my mind. A photographer called Lillian Bassman who passed away last year at age 94 shot in the 50s and 60s. Her stuff is exquisite. She was doing fashion, but was really pushing the envelope shooting fashion. You mentioned that you studied architecture. Do you enjoy architectural photography as well as shooting headshots and landscapes?
Well, I did that a lot for years. Yet, when you shoot either staging a shot directing or doing still photography, you get to present the world as you see it, as you wished it was or as you hope it could be.
Do you do your own post processing? I did for years when I was shooting black and white. I was slow to switch to digital. I have one printer I love that I use for oversized prints. But having the ability to immediately see the image and immediately adjust the image as you want it to be is glorious.

I started really early as an actor, commuting in and out of Manhattan. A zoom lens and a Nikon D That combination is perfect for me.
Seems that there are either Canon people or Nikon people. The lenses get very expensive, so to switch over and have to go to scratch on your lenses is a nightmare. Defending Her Friends Alongside her personal truths, Alley has been outspoken on the rumors that John Travolta is interested in men. With her utmost certainty, Kirstie was quick to rule out any possibility that there is any truth to this rumor. Since Travolta has not been involved in any public scandal, such as womanizing and experimenting with illicit substances, this was what the media had to work with.
The actors have co-starred alongside each other on two films and maintained a long-term close friendship. While they also share the fact they follow Scientology in common, Kirstie saw that the pair were not right to marry, despite her claims of absolute affection for the actor.
Playing on screen husband and wife, the dynamic duo found it in themselves to keep it strictly professional. Though, this is not the case. The pair who went to high school together, were, in fact, distant cousins and her husband shared the same family name as her father….
Similar to the revelation about her time with Swayze, Alley has confirmed that she did have an affair while married to her high school sweetheart, Bob Alley. In her book, she states that her and the guy, who she references as Jake, kissed and were physical with one another. In her eyes, she saw that as a clear indication that she must get a divorce.

She has stated that with the hardships of divorce, she found herself in the mix of experimenting will illicit substances and not being able to stop. Following the likes of Tom Cruise and John Travolta, Alley and her family are strong believers in Scientology, having followed the religion for over 30 years now.
Defending Her Religion She has, however, had to defend her religious choices after Howard Stern asked her if she was a paid spokesperson for the religion. This did not come without any backlash from her former associates. Anything For The Church While seeing former Church members as new enemies, the Cheers actress has shown her dedication to the Church even more so with generous donations being made. We guess that is enough to show how much she values the Church and her involvement with Scientology.
She has also purchased a house in Clearwater, Florida, where the spiritual headquarters of the Church of Scientology is located. Her Weight When you hear Kirstie Alley, you may think of all the tabloid headlines that circulate about her weight.
