Welcome to the Laveen Photography website. I am currently completely redoing my website, so please bare with me as this will be a work in progress for a short while. I will be getting examples of my work uploaded to the site as quickly as possible.
My name is Doug Smith and I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my website and I truly hope you like what you find here. Photography is a passion for me and I want to share that passion with you. I see photography as a medium for having fun, personal expression, a means of capturing memories, and a delightful challenge. I have been involved in photography for a number of years, but my passion really developed when I bought my first digital SLR camera. I have recently begun to develop this passionate hobby into a small business. My primary goal, however, is still to have fun and to make taking photos fun for everyone involved.
My photographic interests started with landscapes; a natural spinoff from my “bill paying” job in the environmental field. Over the years I have expanded my interests which now include trains, planes, and automobiles; people; sporting events; cityscapes; and just about anything else you can think of to photograph. When I photograph people, my goal is to capture a bit of their soul and spirit. Whether I am photographing a family outing, senior portraits, or engagement photos, I want the photographs to not only be aesthetically pleasing but to capture the feelings of the moment.
I hope you will take a few more minutes to explore the site and see what we have to offer. About Laveen Photography provides a bit more background and information about me, my interests, and my approach to photography. Services describes some of the services I provide. I know everyone is interested in how much it will cost. I do provide some rate information; however, the best thing to do is to Contact Laveen Photography and let me work with you to come up with a photographic plan that best meets your needs. I know my rates will be more than competitive.
I also like helping people new to the modeling business get started. So if you are an aspiring model, contact me at email@example.com and lets talk about your modeling goals and how I can help.
The Portfolio tab will take you to examples of some of my photographic work. I have more photos on my SmugMug page. I originally set up my Client’s Photo Albums page as a secure site for for clients to view their personal photos and to select photos to purchase. However, for the time being I will be using SmugMug as the location for clients to securely view their photos. Client’s photos are only visible to the individual client.
Please visit me on Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you. Let’s have fun making photos!
