Doug Winter is an editorial and fine art photographer focused on social change. Doug draws inspiration and visual guidance from the life experiences of his subjects to create his own blend of conceptual portraiture. His photography exhibits a nod to other genres of art and literature, from Dutch master painters to philosophers, mathematicians, and scientists.
A graduate of the Colorado Institute of Art and a native of Colorado, Doug began his career in Washington D.C. frequently photographing major events at the White House.
Opportunities to photograph two US presidents, heads of state, diplomats, and celebrities helped Doug hone his ability to be flexible and respond to client needs quickly.
Doug’s current photography project: “Hope Against Hope, Vignettes of the Unsheltered” strives to initiate and inspire societal change, increase understanding, raise awareness and bring dignity to the unsheltered in Sacramento through the honesty of photography.
Recently this work was published on the National Geographic website’s “Daily Dozen” which feature National Geographic editors favorite photos.
