Having my portrait done by Jim was the first time I felt completely at ease in front of the lens. I found I
was quickly able to relax and trust he was capturing my personality. His creativity & professionalism ultimately provided me with some of my all-time favourite images of myself. I would absolutely recommend
his services to anyone looking for a top-notch photographer!
CHILDREN & FAMILY PORTRAITS
Jim is a wonderful photographer and person. He makes what could be a frustrating experience thoroughly
enjoyable. He creates a calm atmosphere. My husband and I had him photograph our family. It's the first
professional photos taken of our family. We have three young daughters (10yrs, 8 yrs, 5 yrs old). It's not always easy to get all engaged at the same time. He came with a plan. He worked quickly and my
daughters responded. My husband and I love the photos. Lighting great! Smiles great! All looked great! I
didn't even have the dark circles under my eyes. He works miracles! We decided to use it as our Christmas card and as gifts to our family.
Jim Doty is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. As an agency represented model/actress
over the last five years I have worked with a number of companies and agencies. I can truthfully say I have never worked with an individual who I felt more comfortable or relaxed with while shooting. Jim is one of a
kind. He is genuine, kind-hearted, and an amazing photographer. His skill is absolutely remarkable. Every time I shoot with him, I know I will have a new "favorite" to add to my modeling portfolio. Thank you so
much for everything Jim - it is truly an honor every time we are able to work together.
I am an Exercise Physiologist/Personal Trainer who was in search of a professional photographer to shoot
fitness shots for my training website. Initially, I was only open to a woman photographer for security reasons, but changed my mind quickly after meeting with Jim. He impressed me with the amount of time
he spent researching fitness poses/shoots prior to our appointment. He was entirely knowledgeable about
lighting, angles, locations, poses, etc, both in-studio and on-site in a beautiful waterfall setting. He was
extremely professional and made me feel completely comfortable despite the fact that I was in minimal clothing! He allowed me to give my input, but made sure to give his professional opinion in order to get the
best shot possible. My photos were amazing and were delivered within a minimal amount of time. I am extremely grateful to Jim and would recommend him to anyone!
I had the pleasure of working with Jim on 2 occasions. His expertise is matched only by his efficiency. His
knowledge of photography and getting the best shots is clearly evident in his work. After viewing some of Jim's portfolio, I truly believe that he is one of the best photographers that I've worked with in central Ohio.

Portraits You Will Cherish
Tired of the "drive by", 20 minute, assembly line portrait session? Are you looking for something more? Are you ready for a better photo experience.
On the photo shoot Jim will take the time to create memorable images you will cherish for years to come. You will the receive the attention you deserve. In the digital darkroom Jim will professionally retouch your photos in a way that suits your personal preferences. Some photographers cut corners and you end up with unnatural, plastic looking skin. Jim takes the time to do things right. You can see an "enhanced" photo retouch here along with a link to a video of the retouching process, and see more examples and retouching options here.
