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!
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.

My name is Natalie R. Coles. I am the Area Director of the Columbus UNCF-the United Negro College Fund. We used Jim to take pictures of our walk for education and couldn’t have been happier with the results. The pictures were wonderful and very affordable! He captured candid photos as well as staged shots and both truly showed the authenticity of the event. We look forward to using Jim at next year’s event and for years to come.
