Thomas J. Doggett is a visual storyteller with a background in editorial photography and penchant for capturing the candid moments in between the poses. His style and approach is a generous mix of documentary and lifestyle portrait techniques. For the majority of the day, he stays very hands off, focusing 100% on the story. You won’t find him asking you or your friends to stage or recreate moments, but you will find him ready to capture those moments before they even happen. During portraits, it’s a little different. He gives plenty of direction, working to bring creative ideas and poses to make images that are as unique as the people in them. Though he does direct during portraits his intentions are to capture the candid moments in between the poses to give you honest, natural photos. Thomas holds an Associate of Arts in Photography, Bachelor of Arts in Business and lives in the western suburbs of Chicago with his rather large family and their Siberian Husky, Juno.
