Photography as Communication

Using the correct photos for the job is so very important, as photos are a way to communicate!

Correct lighting, angles,quality of the photos (I use HDR photos), presentation and more should be considered when looking for the best photographer.

Virtual Tours



Melissa Thomas - Coldwell Banker KPDD

I use Doug Roth Photography for all of my listings and the pictures are always amazing. I always receive compliments on all of my listings about how great the photos are. I know how important good pictures are in my line of work and Doug's photos are so complimenting of houses that I list. Doug is also very professional and so easy to work with.  I would recommend his services to anyone.

I first meet Doug in 2011 while working alongside him as a licensed Realtor in Columbus, Ga. Doug was willing to invest the energy in trying to help me grow as a professional in the early years of my career. Doug genially wanted to see me succeed, and did his best to teach me the trade and help me make it in an extremely difficult market. However, I end up making a move into building custom homes after realizing that being a Realtor was not the calling for me. I can honestly say Doug is one of the most trustworthy individuals I know, and after knowing him on a personal level my choice to work with him on a professional one was easy. 

For years I had been trying to do all my photography myself for our Facebook page. Until one day while Facebook stalking some of my local competition I came across some particularly good photos, and happened to notice that they we take by the one and only Doug Roth. Now before hiring Doug we had a modest Facebook following of about 2,300 follows and had worked extremely hard to grow it to that point. However, when the time came to take some photos of some of our more custom work I knew who I needed to call. Doug now dose all my work and boy have we seen a huge jump in business since then. Only a year after we began working together we now proudly have over 128,000 follows and still growing. 

One of the smartest moves I made in my Professional life was to entrust all of my photography needs to Doug. After all they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I know the story that Doug Roth Photography tells about my product and that’s the one that matters the most to me.

Doug, I found out today that the folks who are buying Hedgestone listing made their decision while in Egypt and it was all because of the virtual tour. This came directly from them. Thanks

My Background


I started at a very young age taking photos.  I come from a military family, so we lived in many different States in the USA as well as Germany.  I had a small camera I would take with me in all our travels and take photos, so I have been taking photos for a long time.

Once out of high school, I purchased an SLR camera and would take photos of friends and landscapes. Since I lived in Denver at the time, it provided me with many great opportunities for beautiful locations.

I have been a Realtor (Associate Broker) for the past 13 years and would take photos and make virtual tours for my clients property to market them on the internet.  When other Realtors saw what I was able to produce, they asked me to do the same for them. At that point, I started DOUG ROTH PHOTOGRAPHY and upgraded all my photography equipment to the lastest DSLR cameras and now produce HDR photos, Zillow Videos and Virtual Tours.

I am hired by many of the Realtors and most are the top producing Realtors in the Columbus, Ga and Phenix City, Al 

Beside Real Estate, I have provide my services to Businesses, Churches, Land photos, Golf courses, Assistant Living Facilities, Non-Profit compaines and more.
