The extra space quickly became known as simply "The Gallery". There you are introduced to many artists and creators from around the Tulsa Area. You can purchase unique gifts, original art, home decor, jewelry, photography, books by local authors and so much more that has all been designed by carefully selected individuals who fit the criteria of what PBD is all about: "PASSION"!

In November 2014 Bob Vest was able to make one of his passions come to life when he opened1 Shot Studio next door and attached to Passion By Design. Bob first developed an interest in photography in 1976 while using a medium format Mamiya film camera developing in his very own dark room at home. In 1985 his focus shifted into the television industry but never leaving his love for photography behind. Currently, he is working as a freelancer for many of the major networks and several of the smaller ones.
Bob also teaches Digital Photography for beginners and advanced photographers at 1 Shot Studio and video editing at the Metro TCC Campus.
Bob’s passion is not just photography, but an OUT OF THE BOX experience based on each individual’s needs. He has quickly become known for getting that perfect masterpiece shot that just screams to be displayed as artwork on a beautiful large canvas.
