Oklahoma School of Photography is working with the various entities including Moore Chamber of Commerce, City of Moore, Baker’s Photo Video of Yukon, etc… in order to do a single coordinated photography recover and restoration effort for the Oklahoma Tornado Victims. If you have been affected by the tornado and have photographs in need of restoration please contact us. We will restore them and get them back to you. If you have found photographs in the debris, please contact us and we will restore them. We are creating a website in order to post found images so they may be reunited with their owners.
Baker’s Photo and local photographers as well as photography clubs are volunteering in this effort.
You may bring the photos to us at 2306 N. Moore Ave Moore, OK or to Baker’s Photo Video in Yukon. If you are unable to get the images to us please contact us and we will get you a drop off location.
We are expecting a large number of photographs and cannot guarantee a time frame on the restoration and return, however we will be working as quickly as possible to reunite images with owners. We are open Monday – Friday 8am-5pm. 405-799-1411
