R.E. Lindsey has been taking pictures for most of his life. At age 7, Lindsey's dad gave him a used Kodak 35mm camera. He soon learned to load the film canisters, shoot a roll, load the developing can, and finally process the film in the family's kitchen darkroom. As a young adult, Lindsey's passion for photography grew. He wore out two 35mm bodies, stepped up to a Pentax 6x7 camera, and now shoots digitally on Nikon equipment.

Lindsey's first published images were for the Oklahoma Tourism Department. Since then, his work has appeared in coffee table books, textbooks, travel guides, scenic calendars, and postcards. Lindsey's classic images can be found on the walls of various corporate headquarters, the state capitol, and at Disney World. Lindsey is a regular contributor to Oklahoma Today magazine. "I strive to make my images show the perspective of a native Oklahoman who loves his state," says Lindsey. For more of Lindsey's photography, visit www.oklaphoto.com.
