Hello, I'm Roger,
After spending 25 years in the high tech industry as Service Delivery & Customer Service Manager, I took a life changing decision to become a carer for my elderly mother,, until she passed away in 2017.
This enabled me to follow my dream and found Roger Parker Photography with my partner Susie, providing professional wedding, event, and family photography across the south of the UK and beyond.
Based on the borders of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and Oxfordshire, right on the edge of the Cotswolds, we are lucky enough to be surrounded by natural beauty, which fuels our passion for nature photography.
We only use Canon professional grade equipment, and also have a .mobile photographic studio, which can be set up on your premises if required.
We hold professional memberships to the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers, the Society of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers, and Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. I'm also delighted that Lowepro have also awarded myself their approved Photographer status.
Whilst fulfilling the role as my mothers carer, I started to work very closely with Carers Gloucestershire, by donating my time to act as their lead Photographer at fundraising events, which I continue to do as well as delivering training to carers to help them use photography as an respite from their own carer roles. As a reward for this and my dedication as a carer I was a finalist in the heart of Gloucestershire awards as a caring hero in 2016.
During the rare downtime we get, you can still find us with cameras in hand, photographing wildlife or walking our Jack Russells, Oli and Poppy. You may also find me supporting the local rugby club I used to play with and have the honour of being a VP for, meanwhile Susie will be either crocheting for pleasure or charity, or painting beautiful glass wear including the personalised champagne flutes included in our Platinum package.
