"Several years ago John shot some photos for our SWAT team during the course of a routine training session. The photos turned out extremely well, and formed the bases for much of the promotional material showcasing our team at community events and displays at fundraisers. Last year the team received new body armor, helmets and communications gear giving the officers an entirely different look, so I asked John if he could come and shoot some updated team photos. The results are truly astonishing! The unique balance of art and technical skill is evident in each photograph. Both John and his brother David are true professionals and their well communicated pre-shoot planning and creative briefs made for a quick and efficient shoot. Their support for the community and the SDPD SWAT team is greatly appreciated."

"As a new member of the San Diego Polo Club, Zeeto Media CEO, Stephan Goss, was given ad space in the San Diego Polo Magazine. In an effort to support the local community, Stephan decided to create a full page ad promoting the San Diego Police Department's annual golf tournament benefitting S.W.A.T. The magazine is Southern California's only luxury polo and lifestyle publication engaging in a unique audience comprised of equine enthusiasts and dynamic professionals who are loyal, chic and sophisticated readers. Proven purchasers of luxury goods, reader demographics are as follows: 64% of readers own homes worth over $1 million; 92.9% of readers have a bachelor's degree or higher; the average household income of readers is $550,000; the average net worth of readers is $4,680,000. Needless to say, our team at Zeeto Media needed the highest quality images we could find to create an ad that matched the magazine's exclusive design style while evoking a call-to-participate from readers. Our search for images made available by the Police Department's PR team didn't fit our team's vision so we looked elsewhere. In the end, our research lead us to John Parsons Photography. Their online portfolio immediately intrigued us and we reached out. Within minutes of our inquiry, I received a personal email the owners. What is more, in one creative brief John (Owner and Director of Photography) and David (Co-Owner and Director of Brand Development) were able to collaborate with our lead designer to pin-point our vision and, consequently, sent us print-ready images to bring to life our ad. The final product was stunning. Working with John Parsons Photography was exceptional. They were approachable, personable, and went the extra mile to make things happen quickly without sacrificing quality. Their punctuation, creativity, and the level of professionalism/editing expertise positions them as one of the best in the business. Big thanks from our team."

"John is not only an amazing photographer but he has an amazing personality as well, especially when it comes to dealing with young children. He was so patient with our active one year old twin boys. He made them giggle and laugh and even got on the ground with them. He did both my newborn photographs as well as the boys one year photos and both sessions were amazing, the pictures were just beautiful."

"I have always loved photography but found that getting that one perfect shot was so hard to accomplish. With John Parson's photography I found that not only did I get that one special shot where he captured a piece of life on camera, but also recieved shot after shot of soul reaching, heart touching photographs that will forever capture such a special moment in me and my family's life. He is the best photographer I have ever known and makes shooting pictures seem natural and easy. Thank you John for capturing such a special moment in my family's life!"

"Recently, John Parsons photographed the San Diego Police Department’s SWAT... John was extremely professional throughout the process. At the conclusion of the project, John met with me to share the finished product and obtain final approval. We were extremely pleased with the final photographs and continue to utilize them in a variety of ways including promoting our team and supplementing training material. I would not hesitate to utilize John or his company for any similar project."
