We Are Image Makers

From award winning Tulsa senior pictures to high end commercial content for Fortune 500 brands, Shipman Photography is Tulsa Oklahoma’s premier source for professional portrait photography, video production and custom digital art visual content for any organization large and small.

From the initial free consultation to the moment you hang those beautiful new family heirloom pictures on your living room wall, post that custom senior athletic poster or launch that perfectly branded stunning visual content you need for that new website or billboard – Shipman Photography is committed to your complete satisfaction.  You are authentic, and capturing that authenticity is our specialty.   Our video production specialists can shoot, edit and produce cinematic video that tells your story in motion, whether that story is a television commercial or a commemoration of an important family event.

From the Shipman Photography team to you, we hope to earn not only your business today, but also your business tomorrow.  To do that, we know we need to exceed your expectations.   Nothing less will do.   

Be Authentic

“Be Authentic” is our team motto.   For our clients, it means be yourself… your real self, whatever that might be and however you define it.   For us, it is our job to represent your authenticity and bring it to life in portrait photography that is not merely a picture, but a family heirloom to outlive us all and be passed from generation to generation.  

We invest time and genuine interest in our portrait clients and our commercial clients alike.  As small business owners ourselves, we understand the importance of that headshot and what it says to your clients about who you are.  We know how important it is to brand your website with beautiful visual content that represents your products, services and mission with genuine authenticity.

“You Don’t Take a Photograph.  You Make it.”

This is our favorite quote by Ansel Adams, a world famous photographer known best for his spectacular landscapes.   I believe that what he meant by that quote is that the photographer serves the image, before and after the shot.

At Shipman Photography, that means 15 years of professional photography and graphic design experience come together in a process that truly serves the image.  From properly framing, staging and lighting a shot in camera, to the expert and appropriate adjustments of that image in post production, making the image is the work we love.  From the simple to the spectacular, Shipman Photography is the premier Photoshop production studio in Oklahoma.
