Hi, I'm Doug, a Santa Barbara-based headshot and family and business portrait photographer who helps people feel at ease no matter the occasion. In addition to ten years experience as a professional photographer, I have a career and Masters degree in branding/marketing and use somatic coaching and positive psychology and other energetic/body based tools to help you embody and express your best.
My images have been published in numerous magazines and broadcast television programs, including Spirituality & Health, Travel + Leisure, Success, National Geographic, and Oprah's Super Soul Sunday and the Today Show.
I am a 2015 and 2016 Best of Thumbtack Award winner as well as a Top Pro in 2017, 2018 and 2019. I have been a professional photographer in Ojai, Santa Barbara, and Montecito for over 10 years.
My style is casually elegant, with a playful, light-hearted quality that is both relaxed and polished at the same time. This is true of my personal portraits, business portraits, and event photography, including wedding photography
A great photo is an all over body experience. We get to have a lot of fun and feel more alive by showing the real you, the authentic you and those you care about.
