I have been an avid lover of photography and the creative process for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Rhode Island, I took an early interest in photography by way of my Father, who would develop film in the dark room as part of his career as a law enforcement detective.

Photography has always been an introduction to what would eventually become a passion and career in photography and creative design, as the owner and lead artist for Doug Owens Photography and Doug Owens Creative, now working out of Rhode Island, Nashville Tennessee and Phoenix Arizona. 

Regardless of the medium (both photography and creative design), I find solace in the ability to use the frame as a strong force of storytelling. At the core of my beliefs, all conceptual elements of art are adept in different ways of tell stories and portraying a mood. I approach my work with this thought in mind. I want to inspire others to the incredible degree in which they inspire me.
