What Are People Saying? - Doug Martin Visuals

Did You Hear What They're Saying?

For over five years, Doug has taken pictures of our family - portraits, holiday cards, senior grad photos, sports shots and business head shots. What makes him stand out is his ability to make you feel comfortable; let’s face it getting a formal picture taken is always awkward. Doug listens to your ideas and brings them to life. This is especially true when you have three particular teenage daughters! His unique ability to work with light, indoors and outdoors, is truly amazing. Doug also has a great knowledge of unique local settings throughout the area that serve as great backdrops for his amazing pictures. Best of all is that we've recommended Doug to several friends and family and they have all had an amazing experience with fantastic pictures.

A good friend recommended Doug to me when I told her I wanted to have a shoot to commemorate my first bikini competition. When I first contacted him, he said he prided himself on his outdoor photography and I can see why! We shot on location on a Sunday morning and although it was 40 degrees, I looked like I was on the beach in the middle of the summer. He even provided me with a blanket to keep warm between shots! I brought some of my own ideas but he was able to bring them to life even when I did not have the words to explain what I wanted. His photos have added some necessary variety to my newly forming portfolio. Afterward, my photos were quickly edited and returned. I hoped I would look okay, but I never thought I would look so amazing! I did not expect to become personal friends but his energy and enthusiasm are contagious. I have already scheduled my next shoot!

This fall I decided to try a new adventure and thanks to Doug Martin, it was a success! I completed my first photo shoot with Doug on the campus of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. He suggested the site, which had a lot of scenery options and looks that could be captured by camera. Being it my first photo shoot, he was very informative and flexible. He went out of his way to meet somewhere that was convenient for me and he also explained his photography background. I was impressed with his talent and professional attitude, along with being charismatic and energetic about working with me. Thanks to Doug’s work, I have had a variety of modeling opportunities offered and I am excited to work with him in the future!

I compete in Figure Fitness as a hobby of mine and I was searching for a photographer to have contest photos taken as well as start a fitness modeling portfolio. I had seen Doug’s eye catching work on Facebook. He had photographed a lot of of my friends and I heard nothing but how kind, generous, hard working and amazingly talented he is. I knew right then and there he was the photographer I wanted to work with. Not only is he amazingly talented but down to earth, true and genuinely an honest person. I look forward to continue to work with him indefinitely. I feel blessed and fortunate to have met such a great professional photographer and friend.

I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot with Doug after competing in the North Star Bodybuilding Show in Eden Prairie, MN. When I contacted Doug to inquire about setting up a shoot, he graciously took the time to answer all my questions, and provide a brief background of his work. I have had two photography sessions with Doug and he has proven to be very professional, courteous and willing to provide direction as well as offer ideas to ensure the shoots were a success. The locations Doug suggested were absolutely amazing. Doug’s passion for photography speaks for itself in all his work. My expectations were definitely surpassed and I fully intend to book many more shoots with him, he is truly the best photographer I have worked with!

I've been modeling for about six years, and never have I met a photographer as cool as Doug. He goes about doing his job while making the environment very comfortable for the model. Doug always has wonderful ideas. I've known him for about a year, but I feel like I've known him for a longer period of time. He's definitely one of the people in this industry I keep close to my heart. Oh, and did I mention the guy shoots stunning photos? Yes, he's one of the best at what he does.

I have known Doug for almost 3 years now. I have done multiple photo shoots with him and everyone of them being a fabulous success. He is professional and full of great ideas. He goes above and beyond to listen to my ideas and then helps me put what is in my mind into effect. I have recommended Doug to friends who also had amazing pictures turn out with him, and they too were happy with his work. He is respectful and so full of energy. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences and I cannot wait for many more to come!
