Digital – West Photography

After 16 years serving Oklahoma City’s commercial photography market, Ted West Photography has changed its name to Digital-West. Business owner Ted West says the name change is a result of the increasing emphasis upon digital imaging in commercial photography. “I’ve been shooting digitally for nearly a decade, but with an increasing number of clients requesting digital imaging, it seemed a good time to change the name. Hopefully, this will give both current and potential clients a better understanding of our ability to fulfill all their imaging needs.”


Along with digital photography for corporate advertising, catalogs, sales and marketing, the studio offers digital video services, as well as digital photo manipulation and enhancement. Digital-West will continue to provide film photography, drum scanning and corporate artwork services.

In making the transition, Blaine Rider has joined Digital-West from KOTV-6 in Tulsa, where he served as an Advertising Account Executive. Rider will represent the studio in the marketplace, as well as assist with the day-to-day operations of the business.

A commercial photography studio located in Oklahoma City, OK, USA, with experience covering two decades, and the perception to focus upon making the transition from conventional to digital photography, we create catalog, people, food & industrial photography for advertising and packaging. Along with digital and conventional photography, we provide photo composition, retouching, drum scanning and general pre-press services.

Mirko Jaquet


mirko_jaquet1Hi, my name is Mirko Jaquet and a photographer . I have a great experience in many fields of ” drawing with light. ” I ranked well in various competitions , including the IPA ( Internationa Photography Award ) in Hong Kong , to which I finished third on over 1000 participants .

Really begins with the studies of graphics in a higher Art Institute . The specialization was graphic and pictorial decoration . Then slowly , I start (again due to school ) to get closer to photography .

During a two-year school of non-digital machines. The film was certainly different in the treatment, both in the work with light. Not that there is talk of ease or difficulty with respect to modern photography, but the treatment and processing was totally different. Now you can make 500 shots without problems, with the film, however, was a cost to be reckoned with.

The passion starts at school, in short, and soon becomes stronger. Not believing in the very institutional studies, I begin to seek private courses, therefore, will not list for the sake of time, space and even recognition. But, like all private courses if chosen well, bring a greater amount of information and field applications.

So year after year, I carried out the graphic part and a photo, discovered that parallel roads and that often can meet. This, in fact, is a website (or project if you prefer) that talks about both and how both can work together.

I spent a long time abroad, a bit ‘to studies, a bit’ to learn about new thoughts and discover different landscapes. And abroad I realized that the real picture is not the one very good tool, but the eye and imagination of who is behind it.

I realized that a camera is not a photographer, it helps yes, allows him to range even further with the possibilities, but it does not make it a photographer if it’s not. The eye for framing, shooting safety, imagine the scene even before you shoot it. This is a photographer. Playing with the lights already knowing what will be the result. Are all things that can not be improvised, you need to know. We have to make love with the light because she should bow to your wishes. Just as you have to know the character of the external light and bend to his will, when you decide to go out and let the world, our world, is the scene of a work.

I do not think that I should dwell more in an “about me,” because as always hear people say (and this is something in which I firmly believe): a picture is worth a thousand words. There are no contests won, there are no courses and there are no studies that can talk more than they can make a balanced portrait, he lit perfectly and harmoniously balanced.

One last thought is for all those who have done part of the way with me, that I have followed and helped in so many times and I have thanked immortalizing them in my memory first, and then in my photos.
