Douglas J. Nesbitt
A photography/journalism major at Los Angeles City College, Douglas J. Nesbitt began his professional career while a student working as a production still photographer shooting sitcoms for Norman Lear Productions and also Trump Films in Hollywood, California, shooting TV commercials.

In 1981, Warner Bros. Studios hired Nesbitt to document the original set designs by futurist Syd Mead for Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic “Blade Runner.” In 1984, he was the in-house photographer for Italian designer Antonio Giuseppe and the campaign photographer for the Jesse Jackson presidential campaign. By the summer of ’84 he was on assignment for ABC Sports covering the Olympics in Los Angeles.

Nesbitt is a photographer without a specialty and considers himself a “journeyman with a camera.” His work effortlessly crosses all photographic boundaries from advertising to portraiture to fine art and photojournalism; the latter of which has garnered him multiple awards in both California and Florida.

Nesbitt’s first record-setting exhibition occurred in February of 2005 when he was selected as the “Artist of the Month” at the Orlando Museum of Art Artist of the Month Gallery. In October 2006, his photograph, “Pacifica,” received the Award of Merit for the Best of Florida Artists Registry juried exhibition at the CityArts Factory in Orlando, Florida.

In 2009, Nesbitt exhibited his work in three museums in a span of six months - a group exhibition at the prestigious and nationally accredited Naples Museum of Art in Naples, Florida, at the “Florida Contemporary - Artists and Photographers” exhibition that showcased the work of Florida’s top 46 photographers and artists; a solo exhibition at the Lake Eustis Museum of Art in July; and a record breaking second solo exhibition in October at the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens in upscale Winter Park, Florida, where more than 600 guests attended the opening reception. Douglas is represented by the Jai Gallery in Orlando, Florida.

Ricardo Fernandes, International Association of Art Critics, invited Nesbitt to participate in the 2011 “Click Now” event in addition to exhibiting at the Espace Gallery in Paris. Presently the Nomura Corporation in Tokyo, Japan, is assessing the possibility of a substantial acquisition of Nesbitt’s work for their international hotel clients.

Originally from the South Bronx, New York, Nesbitt moved to Orlando from Los Angeles in 1990.
