Ollie Mack Gentry, who was born in Avon Park, Florida, in 1965, developed his passion for photography very early in his life. Gentry has a certain eye for the unique and historic details of everyday objects and places. Inspired by automobile design, architecture, nature and humanity, Gentry captures the essence of the whole object or being. Inspired by his own love for beauty, and the great images of Mapplethorpe, Leibovitz and Adams, Gentry pays great attention to the intimacy of his subjects and creates serene modern pieces of photographic images and portraits without manipulation. What one sees is what was truly there. Gentry's work has been featured in Southwest Florida over at Daas Gallery, Tincture Gallery, ReMax Dream Realty and The Franklin Shops. He owns Ollie Mack Gentry Photography Studios and Gallery at 2180 West First Street in downtown Fort Myers.
