Douglas Alan Overton Photography
I'm a Photographer / Visual Design & Marketing Consultant that loves creating content that tells the story my clients can be proud of. I specialize in developing and designing visual content that helps make you the hero of your story.
My primary focus in photography is to partner with my clients to create simple, professional and engaging content they can immediately use to promote their company's authority and attract the right customers. In the end the goal is to not only give every client the content they want and need, but to empower them to become experts in using that media showcase their authentic selves and build on their brand.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
It all boils down to simplicity. Together we'll follow a three step process to getting you the images and content you want:
First, Book a consultation:
During our consultation we’ll work together to understand what kind of image content you need and build a plan on how to achieve this look.
Second, Schedule your session:
The world is crazy these days and most times we've got several different responsibilities pulling us in diferent directions. We’ll schedule your photo / video session at a time that fits your busy schedule.
Third, I'll deliver the Goods:
Once your session is complete you’ll have access to all the content we created together in a timely manner. You'll have access to a digital gallery you can use to share your images. Printing options are available as well.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm a professional photographer with almost a decade of portrait, headshots and wedding experience. I'm a member of the Professional Photographer's Association of America and hold a degree in Communications & Graphic Design.
How did you get started in this business?
I began drawing at an early age in life and while I loved putting the pencil to the page and creating something artistic, I've often found I'd spend more time developing stories for my characers than I would in drawing them.
I've always beena storyteller. I began my photography busines as a means of helping others tell their stories and engage with their clients.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've had the wonderful experience to have worked with a broad base of clients. I've partnered with Non-profit and commerical businesses to lawyers and small business owners, coaches, entrepreneurs, performers, actors and fitness instructors; helping them all convey their stories in unique ways.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I've recently done a Behind the Scenes video production for a recurring client. The atmosphere was jubulent and warm. When considering the events of the last year it's easy to develop a negative outlook. I was happy to be a part of a creation that focused on what uplifts us.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
I would advise any client to look at a photgrapher's body of work, but then trust them to deliver the product you need. A relationship with a good photographer can help open doors you'd never think possible.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Questions a client should consider are:
1: Set a realistic budget:
Carefully consider this. "You get what you pay for" is an old adage for a reason.
2: What do you want?
- It's easy to hire a pro and then leave things up to them, however, that can leave things unclear. The best move toward succes is to communicate and agree on what you want with your pro.
3: Set delivery dates:
Again, communication is key. Talk with your pro on when your product will be delivered. This will help dispell any miscommunications and save sore feelings and apologies later.
