There is Nothing as Charismatic as Alignment

I see my portrait photography practice is a blessing, benediction and celebration of that which You Truly Are. I am here to clarify , amplify and reflect the light that unites us all and gift the world with your vibrational signature. Beyond words. 

I am here only to be truly helpful to those who will no longer live life on the layaway plan, for whom nothing less than love will do.

Through the alchemy of awareness I aspire to elevate photography from visual to healing art. Isness is my business and I cultivate and coax it through movement, breathwork, relaxation, multisensory experiences, and service delivered with elan and the humility of knowing our vitality is in service of That which sent us.

I’ve done this in roles as diverse as Marketing Director, Webmaster, Journalist, Creativity Coach, Retreat Leader and Professional Photographer. Nothing brings me more aliveness and joy than seeing my clients fully and artfully expressed.

IT DON'T MEAN CRAP IF IT AIN'T GOT THAT SNAP! --DOUG

My approach to visual story-telling is cross-disciplinary, combining fluency in branding/marketing, somatic coaching, energy and positive psychology and photography to help conscious authors, coaches, healers, teachers and luminaries express their Truth in the and gather their tribes. Mainly I serve as an Ambassador of possibility in directing my attention toward magnifying and multiplying our basic goodness and revealing our divinity.

Because the authenticity and texture of your visuals rests heavily on the presence we cultivate together, I deploy a quiver of embodiment, energetic and psycho-spiritual tools we can deploy to help express your best.

I’ve been blessed to live and work in enriched spiritual and transformational environments, as Esalen’s first Marketing Director, Staff Photographer for the Transformational Leadership Council for ten years, and a primary cover photographer for Spirituality & Health magazine, among many other spiritual and self-help immersions and trainings. My intent is to use what I have learned to fully realize the power of what emerges in our co-created field, and to surprise us with what we find together. My clients rent not only my attention, experience and energy stream but those of all of my ancestors, teachers, guides, helpers, and teachers, and yours as well.

"EVIDENCE IS THE LOUDEST VOICE."--DR. JOE DISPENZA

YOU SEE..ITS NEITHER PRIDE, NOR GRAVITY BUT LOVE THAT PULLS US BACK DOWN TO THE WORLD. THE SOUL MAKES A THOUSAND CROSSINGS, THE HEART JUST ONE.--JOHN GLENDAY
