Doug Gritzmacher found his calling in photography early on as an editorial shooter for a university paper.

Recognizing that he had the talent as well as the interest in photographing people and the moments in their lives, Doug began to shoot both still and motion visuals for a variety of regional and national clients.

Whether Doug is telling the story of a company through video or stylized portraits, or branding portraits for an influencer, Doug creates imagery that is bold and iconic, allowing the viewer to feel as if they are present and providing them with a window into the world of his subject.

Doug is the recipient of an Emmy Award for his contribution as a motion photographer on a project produced by the Pulitzer Center. Corporate giants Google and CNBC, editorial clients The Smithsonian Magazine and The Nature Conservancy, as well as the Cystic Fibrosis Association and the National Education Association all rely on Doug to deliver images that are informative, impactful, and evocative.
