About Me

                                              Portrait by Mark Wangerin

..."for shadow gives ambiguity a legitimacy that light cannot"..

                                            James Lee Burke

While most of my photos are shown in black and white, all  are shot and worked up in color before changing to black and white.  I use a Hasselblad H4D  camera for the finest photographs possible.

I live in Oklahoma City...Actually Edmond.  I do all kinds of photography but like to do Vintage Hollywood,  portrait, high fashion, glamour (in the "old Hollywood" definition). I am not a professional photographer, but an artist, poet, writer, philosopher whose artistic interests include photography.

I have always loved the old Vintage Hollywood Studio Photography, using spot lights,  made popular by George Hurrell in the '30s and 40's and have developed an interest in the Vintage Hollywood look and have traveled to study with Mark Wangerin (#1676590) and had him come to my studio.  I highly recommend him.  He is the best there is at Vintage Hollywood lighting.  I also admire Helmut Newton's style of high contrast black and white.

I also do Hollywood Glamour like Playboy and Maxim using soft box lighting which has a different look.

I have also done workshops with:

Bill Lemon          # 37485

Robert Alvarado  # 43703

Mike Prado        # 3038

Dan Tibbets      # 15033

I have a complete wardrobe of vintage evening gowns, dresses, lingerie, shoes, vintage hats with veils, fur coat, jewelry etc. I provide the wardrobe for my models.  I have many backdrops and props and several antique chairs and create "sets" in the studio, and a luxury home with many unusual places to shoot.

I do not charge for my work, at present.  I do it for the art. I will give any model a DVD of  all her photos and make a small portfolio printed on archive quality paper.

If you have to travel to OKC I will  help pay for your expenses.

So, of you want to get together and make some art, send me an email.
