Uplevel Your Visual Narrative
Hi, I'm Doug Ellis. I'm a conscious portrait and event photographer and authenticity coach. Helping you move from freeze to flow and braced to graced in front of a camera is kind of my superpower. If you want to express your best self visually, with heart, authenticity and resonance, we should connect before, during, or after your conference to uplevel your visual narrative.
As an author, coach, healer, therapist or trainer, I know you are committed to helping others make positive and impactful changes in their lives. I can help you embody and express that authentic desire for transformation through imagery at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes.
I can also help you overcome what I lovingly refer to as Post Traumatic Photographic Stress Disorder. If you or someone you know might have a tinge of photo phobia, contact me to schedule a session!
Doug serves as the Staff Photographer for the Transformational Leadership Council and Esalen Institute, Hudson Institute, Evolving Wisdom, Antioch University and many other cause-driven organizations. His images have appeared in numerous national magazines and broadcast television programs, including the Today Show, Oprahs Super Soul Sunday, Psychology Today online, and Travel + Leisure.
All packages include a pre-session discovery form and clothing style guide.
The Soulful Business Portrait Session includes:
If you would like hair and makeup, please let me know and I will make arrangements for you. Please arrive 45 minutes before your session for makeup and styling.
Heart & Soul Session
This longer (90-120 minute) session is an embodied commitment to the healing power of deeply seeing and being seen. See One Photographers Prayer for the intent.
Heart & Soul portraits are generally more personal, evocative and “artistic” than standard executive/business portraits. They are designed for those completing a major transition, significant life passage, relationship milestone, significant accomplishment or new stage of personal growth. It is available in both a photographic and videographic form.
This session is full and complete and designed to help you recognize your beauty and radiate your joy...or express a side of yourself perhaps even you have never seen. The sessions are intended to be a transformative journey of self-discovery and expression for those ready to celebrate a rite of passage or stretch into something more soulful and artistic than the usual head shot.
The Heart & Soul session evokes more of you, of me, and the work. It is designed to result in a timeless image marking a rite of passage or milestone or even a particular life stage. To maintain their depth and sanctity, a very limited number of sessions are available.
Heart & Soul sessions include the elements of the Business Portrait, plus a varied and customized experience based on our pre-session discovery call.
The session includes powerful inner pre-work work, visualization and somatic practices, and expanded time for more elaborate locations or the inclusion of props, pets, other people, etc.
This session includes a pre-session intake and call, a post-session suggestions, a jump drive with all of the session materials and images, as well as a $100 credit on hardcover albums or framed prints.
