Today we’d like to introduce you to Holly Doughty.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
My passion for photography started when I was in high school. I went to local farms and photographed antiques and animals. There wasn’t a day that went by that I did not have my camera in hand. Finally, I started to realize what I wanted to be in life. “A Photographer.” I then enrolled in the Art Institute of Atlanta for Commercial Photography. I wanted to learn the commercial side of photography as well as the business side. I graduated from The Art Institute of Atlanta with a Commercial Photography Degree. I served as an apprentice for several years under many different photographers with many varying styles. I photographed anything and everything.
I wanted to learn every aspect of photography there was. I photographed commercial, products, people, landscape, events, etc. After being a second shooter for several years, I then ventured out on my own and started my own company. After several years of operating as a location photographer, I was able to open My Own Studio Location. While I photograph in the studio now, I have not moved away from my roots as an on location photographer. We are based out of Canton, Georgia, but we travel to any destination worldwide to capture your moments. I do not limit myself to any particular specialization in photography. The sky is the limit, capturing your most important moments and images are our business. Photography is my passion and capturing your moments is my pleasure. Customer service our top priority, no need is too great, no job is too small. We strive to make every event and outing an enjoyable one.
Every client will receive new and unique images to show off. Every image you receive will be a unique and treasured memory. We strive to get to know our clients, with a core belief that personal touches produce the best results. I edit every single picture and manage what my clients see and receive every visit. Our goal is not only to produce the exceptional images you deserve but an enjoyable experience as well. During my adventures as a photographer, I have encountered many different people from all walks of life, as such I have been able to capture so many treasured moments. Each experience has been your gift to me. We strive to do whatever it takes to ensure that you have a great experience and that your moments are forever captured exactly as you remember them. Come to HD Photography and enjoy an experience you can remember forever.
Please tell us about your art.
My degree is Commercial photography, so that is mainly what I photograph. But I am now getting into lifestyle and fashion photography. Lifestyle is super fun to photograph. I have been photographing this for about three years now; I love capturing moments while they are unfolding in front of me. Having people running, laughing, or even hanging out on the beach having fun. Finding the right models for lifestyle is very important, you need positive high energy people on set to give the clients what they want. Lifestyle photography has inspired me as a person and getting to know a lot more people. Getting people, you don’t know comfortable around you to open up and laugh and make jokes with on set. You have to make fast connections with people.
We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
I think keeping up with all the trends and the latest things that are happening. Social media is huge right now but trying to always keep people in the loop and show everyone what you are doing so they are inspired to hire you as an artist.
