Oetgen Pictures

John Oetgen has long been a favored designer of mine. I used to help him decades ago when I worked at ADAC in Atlanta. He was always kind, gracious and FUN! I was thrilled to see his photography, Oetgen Pictures,  featured in the latest Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles.  John's figure photography is brilliant.  I love the quirky appeal with bold color and great use of light.
