Jason Parker and Declan
Jason was born in Nebraska – yes, people do actually live out there – and lived on the family farm where his family was outnumbered by cows, chickens, horses, cats, really about everything but the sheep (2), rabbits (2), and a goat (1).
His family escaped to Vero Beach, FL, when he was 13, so his teenage years were spent playing beach volleyball, hanging out on the beach and working at a local restaurant.
He attended college in the mountains of western North Carolina at Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, where he majored in Pre-professional Sciences, concentrating his studies on Human Biology and Optical Physics, with an eye toward a career in eye care. He completed graduate-level coursework in Project Management and Group Facilitation at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.
He worked in the optical industry for the past 15 years, first as an Optician and Optical Dispensary Manager, and later as an Account Rep and Territory Manager for the Kenmark Group, where he consulted with eye doctors in Central Tennessee, assisting them in their dispensary management and buying (Sorry this is boring!!).
His career has been spent working with the science of optics and optical lenses, which is why he is so passionate about photography; it comes naturally to him. His wife, Erin, and the other photographers on the team are true artists, with an eye for composition that he will never match. His skills as a photographer are very technical; he utilizes his knowledge of the physics of light, so everyone complements each other quite well.
Jason and Erin made the decision to move down here to pursue their dream of building their own business. So they both left great paying jobs with benefits and retirement to help make the Emerald Coast look good.
