Hi, I'm Doug Cooper. I love photography. It is my true passion.
I am very passionate about film making, and writing as well. I studied film in Los Angeles where I acquired my film degree. I had the opportunity to work on different movie productions in Los Angeles, before returning home to Cleveland, Ohio in 2008, where I was born and raised.
I moved to Phoenix, Arizona in October 2015, where I stayed only briefly. Currently, I am based in Northern California. I have been there since September of 2016.
In past projects, I have been hired both for video as well as still photography, by companies such as FOX, ABC, and HBO, to name a few.
I was a full-time Producer for Fox Sports in both Ohio and Arizona. I left Fox in May 2015 after a little under 5 years.
I've also been a video photographer on the ABC program "The Chew," where I had the pleasure to work side by side with fellow Cleveland Native, Michael Simon.
I was hired by HBO to shoot still photos back stage at the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions. This opportunity allowed me to photograph some of my favorite artistic inspirations and heroes. Artists I photographed included: Ringo Starr, Stevie Wonder, Green Day, Dave Grohl, Joan Jett, Alice Cooper, Joe Walsh, and many others. Those images are available to view. As the images are legally owned by HBO, they require a password to view on my page. If you'd like to see them, feel free to contact me for access.
You'll find I'm open to a variety of photo projects. When I submerged myself in photography many years ago, my first love was, and still is, landscape and nature photography. I love the idea of capturing the natural beauty of the world in a moment that will never exist again.
I soon discovered how wonderful it is to immortalize the natural moments with people as well. Concept Art Portrait photography is something I have become extremely passionate about. I have become known mostly for my Fetish/Kink, Horror/Gothic, and Vintage concepts.
