Restaurant Review

Restaurant Review photos were often taken at a random time.

Sometimes they were scheduled, when i would show up at the given restaurant to capture images of staff, food, customers, and other ambient shots.

I, typically, could

not give notice of when i would be there.

A writer would visit at a different time to write the review.

Heath Ryan Sharp

I was Born in Stillwater, Oklahoma, in 1982. From the farms of western Oklahoma to the inner city of Washington D.C., I am on a constant search to better my eye and the precision with which I photograph the world. I started out when I was in Junior High School with my father’s Minolta MC-II 35mm SLR. I thought it was the coolest thing taking pictures. I later won best in show my senior year of High School at the 2001 N.O.C. art show in Tonkawa, Oklahoma, with an image I took of the Vietnam Wall in Washington D.C. After High School, I studied Photo Arts at the University of Central Oklahoma for two years. I have taken thousands of photos: portraiture, erotica, conceptual art, and my passion, editorial expression. My latest endeavor into the world of editorial expression is freelancing for Urban Tulsa Weekly and Oklahoma Magazine since the middle of 2011. To me, taking a picture is not all about getting the prettiest or best shot -- it’s a whole lot more. I feel that to capture a moment in a certain angle is like looking at a painting. Every picture I have taken always seems to have something to say, not just something to show. Photography is so much more than a medium -- it is an experience, an expression, a glance, an emotion, a story. Although most of my photographs are portrait in style, they still show an emotion whether serious, sad, happy or humorous and fun. I feel that if I capture that emotion that isn’t directly seen at the moment the picture was shot, but is now seen in the photograph itself, I have fulfilled my goal as a photographer and an artist. And, no dad, you still can’t have your camera back. -Heath
