“With camera in hand, I explore the true essence and energy of each individual, product, and location that I photograph, striving to compliment all by capturing with optimum clarity, lighting, and composition. As an educated and experienced photographer, not forgetting to include my journey as a fine artist, I approach every assignment creatively, utilizing my insight and experience to convey
the necessary message within the final image."

Professional Photographer Doug Heslep, based in Winter Park, Florida, is experienced within the areas of photographing Product/Advertising, Fashion,  Model, Editorial, Beauty, Architectural, and Photographic Fine Art Projects. 

Complimented by his undergraduate and graduate studies in Photography at
Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, and over 25 years experience,
he  provides contemporary and individualized imagery.  This meaning no 'cookie-cutter sessions'!  His client list varies from state-wide to national, garnishing many satisfied clientele along the way.

And, to give due credit towards what he considers his biggest accomplishment, Doug was a single parent throughout most of his career.  He raised his son, Alex,
32, from the age of 14 months by himself. 

"The little league coaching days, five seasons actually, were some
of my favorite.  I guess I was being tested to see what I could handle...
considering my studio was booming, and my boys won the league our
first year, I do believe I had a passing grade."

This helping validate...  'integrity, responsibility, and reliability are never in question when working with Doug'.  His talent and professionalism are the icing.  Accused of being a perfectionist, Doug is definitely someone you want on your team.  Although usually brought into a project because of his ability to visualize, conceptualize, and finalize, he still welcomes your input and ideas to help assure you are satisfied completely with the final result.


  • "Doug is a great shooter. In the 20 plus years we worked together, he always delivered above and beyond.  You will not be disappointed whether it be artistic
    or industrial, he does it all with grace and aplomb."
