Don’s fascination with photography continued through his teens and 20s as he earned his Kappa Tau Alpha Honor’s Degree in Photojournalism at California State University, San Jose. After college, he was hired by The National Geographic Society as their youngest Photographer/Editor in their 100+ year history.

He captures people, portraits, products and events with great skill and a pinch of magic. “I thrive on creating really powerful images that truly wow my clients… my goal is to turn the ordinary into extraordinary” says Sparks.

As much as Don enjoys his career in Photography he’ll admit that he’s incredibly blessed with two fantastic daughters, a loving family, and a faith and trust in God.
