About Douglas


Bio

I have been shooting corporate photography for over 10 years and officially opened my private business 4 years ago. Portraiture is a large part of my craft shooting. I have helped people, both young and old, take better pictures. Deciding to share my shooting and teaching skills in a tutoring situation is a natural progression. I will show people how to use the controls on a camera to get away from the "auto" mode to get the most professional image you can. I will also cover picture...

I have been shooting corporate photography for over 10 years and officially opened my private business 4 years ago. Portraiture is a large part of my craft shooting. I have helped people, both young and old, take better pictures. Deciding to share my shooting and teaching skills in a tutoring situation is a natural progression. I will show people how to use the controls on a camera to get away from the "auto" mode to get the most professional image you can. I will also cover picture composition so that each person can tell the story in the best way possible. Basic to advanced off-camera flash techniques will also be covered. Once we have our image, I will teach basic Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom program techniques to bring these images to life.

Meeting students where they are and teaching them to understand their camera and what it means to take a great picture is my whole goal. In my years of Portrait, Event and Wedding photography, I have discovered that many people are overwhelmed by their camera. With some basic instruction, anyone can improve the level of their photography.

My camera knowledge started with film photography classes in High School back in 1980. Since then, I have been mentored by event and fashion photographers. Formal education? No, but you don't just get to shoot for Presidents if you don't know what you are doing. I am on the approved list of photographers for George W. Bush. Spending the past 20 years shooting corporate events, weddings, families and portraits has honed my skills to a very marketable level. Showing my techniques to High Schoolers and adults alike has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my career.
