Welcome to OKport! We're glad you're here. OKport is always under development, but is fully functional.
Just a few notes:
We're hosted on a shared server, so the site may be SLOW at times you may get logged out randomly.
We just added SSL (encryption security) through a third-party service that will secure certain aspects of the site and also possibly make it a little quicker (we've had mixed results with speed.)
Enjoy, thanks for being here and invite your friends!

Though I had some experience a few years before, photography and image manipulation became my main pass time upon my retirement in 2012. Every opportunity to shoot creatively with a model is awesome. Like many other non-professional photographers, I am just enjoying the craft and constantly trying to get better. I will shoot various genre as you may see here.
I always ask for a phone discussion or meet up prior to scheduling and provide full documentation in the form of a Shoot Agreement afterward.
I live in Smyrna and am often in North Georgia near Helen where I have a cabin. For the past couple of years I have been shooting at The Dark Flower Studio created by Lynn McIntosh in the Goat Farm Arts Center. Before 2014 I shot at Glynn Dykstra's Star Studio in old Buford and at my home studio. I will occasionally shoot locations.
