Charles Parks Photography
1599 Superior Ave. Bldg. A-1
Newport Mesa Center
By appointment only
My photographic interests include pinups, conceptual imagery, dark edgy as well with long exposure light photography.
I have no interest in shooting nudes just for the sake of shooting "nekkid"
women.. My nude imagery tells a story or has an artistic reason behind it..
I am accepting limited
TFPs, evenings and most weekends. However, I'm always testing new equipment and techniques, so ask, if interested in one of my projects or if you have a project in mind.
Hopefully, my photography reflects the outer and inner beauty of each individual and speaks for itself.
Models with creativity and a sense of artistry are enthusiastically welcome.
Any TF session demands the collaboration and input from both of us for success and value, otherwise, inquire for rates.
I also teach basic and intermediate studio lighting classes for photographers locally, inquire with a private message if interested.
Nikki Lee (Mayhem #753739)
A model in the true sense, whose every movement becomes a work of art. Beautiful on the inside as well as the outside.
Phillip Ritchie (Mayhem #43582). a true master of the art of photography.
Willing to share, he has pushed me to another level, allowing me to see things in a way I didn't before, giving me the ability to merge my art with my photography..
Honey Baby88 Mayhem #415613 Thank you welcoming me to Model Mayhem, for preventing me for looking stupid my first days here and being a friend, patient and willing to help.

"Where do I even start! Having the pleasure to work with you has truly changed my career as a model and I feel I have grown so much since our first encounter at your studio! I can genuinely say I am a better model and person now that I have you as a photographer and sensei you have taught me so much about the art of modeling. I treasure your pointers and tips you give me each time we shoot together. Just being in your presence is an absolute joy- you always bring a smile to my face! You are a caring, thoughtful, intelligent, understanding, amazingly talented person and I hope we will continue to collaborate and make beautiful art together! Thanks for being you-
