Commercial Photography


Doug Gifford loves being behind the camera capturing images every day. He is an internationally-acclaimed people and event photographer and one of the most versatile visual storytellers you will find today with a relaxed, natural style. Since 1981, his balance of creativity, technical expertise and experience have given him the opportunity to do a wide range of assignments for thousands of clients around the world for advertising, editorial, PR and personal purposes.  He is a consummate professional with an easy-going personality who loves life and does business with integrity and a smile.

With his years of experience, Doug understands the differences between images used for marketing, editorial, PR, and personal purposes, and how to create them for each use. His people skills and professionalism have given him the opportunity to be trusted to work with anyone, everywhere, in many different market segments. He genuinely cares about what you envision and, through his insightful questions, you’ll work together to create a plan and build a relationship so that it feels as if you have known one another for years. It’s this connection that Doug’s clients feel that allows him to create great images on demand, with the right equipment, at the decisive moment, every time, for their desired purpose. In other words, Doug is a true professional photographer you can trust.


“Since 2002, Segerstrom Center for the Arts has entrusted most of its photographic projects to Doug Gifford. He is an artist we can call upon with complete confidence for our many photographic projects. He gets all of the photographs we need, works efficiently, guides our decisions with his expertise and experience and goes above and beyond in order to provide us with the finest documentation of our events. Very importantly, we are completely comfortable with him associating with our donors, patrons, and artists. This is extremely important to us as an arts and non-profit organization with a high public profile. Doug's adaptability to all situations, circumstances and occasions and his enthusiasm for new challenges, have seen us successfully through a variety of assignments and challenges. He is a valued member of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts team.”  Tim Dunn, Director of Public Relations, Segerstrom Center for the Arts
