The Story of The Upside Down Diner
By Jada Parrish | Conceptual Photography | 08/02/22
The days seem to never end and the work circles around me like a tornado of to-dos, almosts, and never enoughs. The cycle seems endless. Futile. So, I leave. I just walk out. No one even looks up. That's how irrelevant my life has become. My body may be imprisoned in place on this treadmill of unending demands but my mind is gone. I'm lost. I'm floating. Or am I walking? I'm blissfu...
The Flood Conceptual Photo Shoot

Nothing in this life lasts forever. Every last bit of it is temporary. Sometimes it seems the struggles will never end, but they always do. The tide goes in and out each day like clockwork.

Buff's studio. That wasn't enough for us though. We brought the submarine set back to Richmond, set ...
Fallen Pixel In Desert
By Jada Parrish | Conceptual Photography | 07/11/22
Why not build a set a drive it all the way across the United States? Sounds like a good time to me! We built this set in Richmond, Virginia, and drove it to Los Angeles, California to have it on display and do live photoshoots on it during a party. For us, photo shoots are a pretty social thing. Our sets and shoots are loud, colorful, and exciting. There is dynamic creativity to them and they nat...
