I’m an award winning photographer born in upstate New York who moved to Colorado as a young boy. Living in the scenic beauty of the Gunnison Valley proved to be the impetus for my interest in photography and the challenge of learning to capture a moment in time that speaks to me. For years I practiced, read, practiced, took classes, and practiced some more. In 2003 I began entering some of my art in photo shows and competitions. In my first show, I received a third place award. I continued to improve my photographic abilities; fine tuning my technique and adjusting my "photographic eye." In 2005, I received two first place finishes as judged by esteemed photographer, John Fielder. This recognition, and encouragement from friends and family, inspired me to start my business: Roger Doak Photography.
A quality photo has the technical elements of light, color, texture and composition, but also creates emotion for the viewer. Enjoy my photography.
