About this pro

Doug is an idividual that has a keen eye for capturing those special moments. He has an introverted personality that likes to stop and smell the roses. This allows him to see things differently. He captures the emotion and mood of children especially well. As its often said, a photo can capture 1000 words.

He loves the candid style which can only be done by the right individuals or else it can looked forced and you miss the general happiness or mood and true emotion or personality of a family or individual. 

Doug is a passionate individual when it comes to photography. He has a style that is defined and noticed. He shoots using only the top tier Nikon Professional equipment which give you a sharper and overall true-to-life photo. He works hard to deliver photos that each client expects from a photoshoot. It is so important to be able to capture growing families and to have memories for a lifetime saved with great photos.

    Doug was awesome to work with! He captured some great moments of my family. He was very relaxed and laid back. He was great with the kids, having them move around and do fun action shots, as with young kids it can be hard to get them to sit pretty for the picture. His pricing is very competitive too. I definitely recommend him if you're looking for a family photographer!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I offer friendly and flexible service to all clients. My typical process is a potential client fills out a simple form either on my website or through email and it starts the booking process. All questions are answered before booking so there is no confusion. Once all questions are answered and understood, the client signs a booking agreement and pays a deductable. Once that is completed, the session is booked for the requested time! Very simple! 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been into photography since high school. I have been in many different careers that are not related directly with photography but are in the tech and video industry. I have trained and still work with top commercial photographers as an assistant for food photography to on location commercial shoots.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing is all flat rate with very little chance to change. Everything is upfront and no changes down the road or hidden pricing. All of my pricing is explained on my website.

How did you get started in this business?

I started with a general interist in photography and then it turned into a part time side job situtation and finally blossomed into a full time career. I have worked in many different industries and havent loved any of them as much as photography.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with children all the way to actors you have seen on TV

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Price is always a factor but look at thier portfolio. That shows what thier style is and what you can expect. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

I am an introverted and calm person. So my photography is typiclly represented in that way. It can show more mood and emotion. My headshot photography shows a lot of different emotions. It depends on what you do for a living and how you wantto be read in the photo.
