About Julian Parkinson

I’m a British architectural photographer + filmmaker living in Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada.

I started out in the late ’80s as a snowboard action photographer, travelling around the world shooting images for magazines, snowboard brands and drinks companies. My experience stems from the pre-digital era which I always maintain is a good thing, a time when you had to get it right without the luxury of seeing images appear on a digital screen as you shoot.

Through the 90’s I was known for shooting lifestyle and clothing for snowboard and ski catalogues in the UK & had many images used in glossy magazines including Vogue, FHM, GQ and the like.


Today I shoot architecture, interiors and the built environment exclusively for a growing list of architecture firms, construction companies and suppliers of architectural products.
