DEREK WILBURN, RED RIVER PRINTING

POST PROCESSING AND PRINTING

Derek Wilburn, 31, is a resident of Oklahoma City and professional printmaker, specializing in giclee reproductions, custom wall murals/covering, and fine art production. I have worked at Red River Digital (formerly Red River Photo Services) for 5 years. While not possessing a formal background in art, I began my love for digital image manipulation at a very young age, making fun images and custom .gifs from about the time I was 12. It is simply something that I have always done. I was raised in very small towns in South Western Oklahoma, and as such that has instilled in me a longlasting desire to showcase our Native lands and the people who live there.

CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATIONS
Little did I know when I unwrapped the Kodak Instamatic 104 at my twelfth birthday party and started snapping images of my twin sister along with our giggling guests in their rainbow lounge pajamas that it was to be a seminal moment in my future career. However, it was a college summer session in Paris and the south of France studying modern languages and sporting a borrowed 35mm camera that crystallized my affair with travel and the camera. I loved the fresh perspectives gained through the lens. my craving for this combination is ineffable. It is as mark twain writes, "broad, wholesome, charitable views cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime".

 
I continued this new path as custom color printer and photo assistant for creative resources corporation, an inc. magazine top 500 organization. I discovered my eye for color and honed the technical side of my craft. My career advanced in the school of hard knocks when I forged ahead on my own. A 100-year-old, 4500 square foot historic building is now home to Shevaun Williams & Associates, Inc. the renovated space includes full kitchen, make-up/dressing facilities, staging area and three separate studio spaces.

 

I continue to be inspired by the art of photography every day. Excitement, attention to detail and passion for the subject matter are the order of the day. I am grateful every day that this chosen avenue of expression throws me in the path of like minded artists.

 

And I can still rock an award winning layout back off the springboard.
