Hi. I'm Doug Pope, born and raised in the California Bay Area. Self expression is very important to me, so I know how important it is to you.
My journey into photography began in 2016 when I purchased a small camera and started receiving compliments from friends and family. I initially shrugged off the compliments as nice gestures. In 2017 I was completely obsessed with photography. I was spending an average of 40 hours per week scouring the internet for ways to become a better photographer, and looking for test subjects.
In 2017 I received an offer for my first paid shoot, which I gladly accepted. At the end of 2018, I began doing real estate photography for Sparks Media Group, though in 2019 my freelance photography began to interfere so I left Sparks Media Group to focus on my own business.
I learned the importance of time management, communication, and attention to detail. After 450,000 photos in 4 years, I have decided that I am most comfortable and confident with Obscure portraiture.
My specialty is solitary San Francisco Bay Area portraits, and I am passionate about helping you make Memories With A Difference!
