July Artist: Sametta Jackson-Parker

 

Sametta Jackson-Parker (SammieJay) has had a passion for photography since receiving her first camera at the age of seven. She began looking at the medium seriously while taking a course during her senior year of high school in Anchorage, Alaska. Her favorite subjects are shooting nature and taking pictures of everyday people. Sametta enjoys taking photos of performances, classes and rehearsals at the FOA, many of which have been used in our promotional materials. Since 2017, she has amassed a collection of more than 75000 images capturing the heart and soul of performing arts in our community. In addition to photography, Sametta enjoys acting, drawing, music and sewing. She has directed and taught at FOA and is currently serving as lead costumer.
