Unlike other photographers, Eric Doggett didn’t start shooting when he was three years old. In fact, it was at the age of 33 when he first picked up a camera and began learning everything he could about photography. After a few years of shooting weddings and families, Eric moved into commercial photography where he now looks for ways to combine ideas, lighting and processing to create fun, high-impact images (with a little bit of humor thrown in).
When he’s not shooting for clients, Eric enjoys spending time with his wife Lisa and his two sons Brandon and Trevor. You can see more of his work at doggettstudios.com.
