YOURS FREAKIN TRULY

Schwarz

I'm A Man Of My Word

Im a photographer in oklahoma city. dont tell me how to light a subject, dont tell me how to take a picture. im gonna do it my way, and thats why people like my work.

I dont like working with models, I like working with people. I dont really care what you look like, as long as youre interesting, the photos will be interesting. YOU WONT LOOK LIKE A PORCELAIN DOLL IN MY WORK. If you stumble you will not shatter into a million pieces.

i love critiques, but keep in mind, my work is what it is, and while i may find some fault, i love it. the beautiful thing about art is that it is all relative, but again, I do love to hear what people have to say.

and how come there isnt a "favorite model" option? that answer would be Lanoya <3

Current Residence: OKC,OK
Favourite genre of music: Dark Wave
Favourite photographer: Coombs, David James, Corbijn, and Jazzylemonade here on deviantart
Favourite style of art: dark, ominous, brooding
Operating System: mac
MP3 player of choice: ipod touch 2nd gen
Personal Quote: "Absolutely"

Hurt Locker


This photo was taken during the middle of one of "Red Pill Projects" shoots, involving the model, Annika, wearing a dress we made out of electrical tape. During the shoot I noticed the machine shop we were shooting in had lockers, and I had an idea in my head for sometime about doing a bully themed shoot, and we had all the materials right there for it.

So I had Annika get inside the locker, then had chains coming from inside the locker pulling her in as she is trying to pull herself out, tape across her eyes and mouth because no one sees what is happening, no one will listen to her cries of help as she is being forced back into that iconic bully image of being stuffed in a locker.

The desaturation and deathly feel of it is contributed to Phoebe Prince, the girl who was bullied to the point she committed suicide, and this picture is for her and everyone who has ever been bullied (including myself back in middle school).

I don't have to tell you bullying is a problem, but there are lots of people in authoritative status out there who believe bullying is all part of finding your place in school, which is BULLSHIT, and they need to realize the psychological trauma this is having on people.

On the Daily Deviation: I hadnt been on DART in almost two months and I got on and it said I had like, 919 unread messages I was like.... WHAT. So I was in shock to see one of my pictures(which im lucky if a pic of mine gets past 20 views) up to 5,600 and 250 faves, which meant the world to me. And bless NIXON55 whose stuff can be seen here: nixon55.deviantart.com/ &… suggesting it, and admin PULLINGCANDY, here: pullingcandy.deviantart.com/&n… posting it. Really means the world to me guys.

heres a link for the pic here on DART:  fav.me/d2ovwk8

That makes me happy!

I just got back on here to see a DD from a Lips show I shot a couple years back. Crazy.

Thanks for the music info!

I'm up in Piedmont -- well, when I'm not passing through Yukon on my way to Mustang and back...
