I began keeping a personal journal at the beginning of 2014 as a way to document some events in my life and changes to my perspective on the world, and the people in it.  I don’t add much to this section of the site because I don’t have much to say to the public anymore.  When I do this is the place you can find it.

Having a rich history in Photography, I wanted to take my talents to the next level. So I taught myself video production which included shooting, lighting, script writing, direction, editing and motion video graphics.  I worked in this medium for a number of years.  Now, it’s all for fun.

Of all the hobbies I’ve indulged in photography is my favorite by far.  I’ve had a camera in my hand since i was a kid. I started off with a Kodak 110 camera and I learned how to use it in short order. I’ve always had an eye for imagery which I began combining with my own personal experiences.  Subjects: humanity and nature.

H&8TH Oklahoma City OK

H&8th Night Market is a volunteer-driven not-for-profit event founded by Laura Massenat, owner of Elemental Coffee Roasters, Chef Jonathon Stranger, co-owner of neighborhood restaurants Ludivine and The R&J Lounge and Supper Club, and J.D. Merryweather, owner of Coop Ale Works, as a fun way to bring the neighborhood together and introduce Oklahoma City residents to new development in the Midtown district.

The seasonal event has become the largest monthly food truck festival in the U.S. based on attendance, drawing between 20,000 and 40,000 people each month during the 2014 season. The first H&8th was held August 26, 2011, included three food trucks and attracted approximately 200 people. The name H&8th refers to the event’s epicenter and place of origin: at the corner of Hudson Avenue and N.W. 8th Street.These images were shot for the Oklahoma Travel Guide for 2016.All images ©2015-present Lan and Taira Lamphere.
