Mary Parkhill is a professional photographer who left a successful advertising career to pursue her true passion which was once her hobby, as a full-time career. At the present, she’s has gained popularity for her fine art photography which mainly focuses on natural landscapes.
Parkhill, usually based in Pennysylvania, travels to Alaska in the summer to capture the extremely picturesque landscape. This includes incredible photographs of orcas cheerfully moving about in the water. The way she captures the situation is truly impressive. She mostly photographs killer whales and sunsets and skillfully and creatively blends them into the perfect composition. She uses the anatomy of the orcas to guide the viewers all over the picture.
At certain times, the nose or the tail with the gorgeous creatures perfectly aligns with the golden blazing sun. Or else, the sun simply serves as an absolutely beautiful background to the orcas, highlighting these truly majestic creatures. Either way, it’s unbelievable how the living and non-living components of nature connect perfectly to create such incredibly picturesque photographs.
Parkhill states that her inspiration behind photographing orcas is their size, and how they take her breath away. Every summer, she explores Alaskan landscapes and adds the resulting photographs to her portfolio. She’s very fond of whales. She possesses an amazing collection of photographs of orcas and humpbacks that are breaching the Alaskan waters.
Through her sunset photos that are breathtaking combinations of landscape and fine art photography, Parkhill presents unforgettable, dreamy escapism. Some of her orca sunset photographs are available for purchase on her website.
