A Message From Doug Mattice

As Your Coach, I Will Awaken Your Potential So You Can Become The Best Version of Yourself!

"Onward to Excellence" is a coaching and business development service with a mission that positively impacts photographer's lives. From bringing online trainings vividly to life to creating interactive workshops, I provide powerful coaching and business training to professional photographers around the country to expand their vision and create extraordinary impact.

My high-leverage business development training, workshops, and coaching are the perfect match for photographers who are ready to transform their business. My unique two-step approach of inner coaching and outer business strategies ensures you receive a full holistic picture of what it takes to be a successful studio owner. I use the power of coaching to create inner shifts by addressing limiting beliefs and barriers, and introduce creative business strategy skills that provide you with a step-by-step roadmap that leads to business excellence. My one-on-one business development and coaching programs help photographers gain more clarity and align with their values and sense of purpose in a way that brings deep fulfillment to being an entrepreneur and renewed creativity for photography.  

My powers of observation, ability to immediately build client trust, and my tactful, direct style create an environment in which professional photographers can speak the truth and receive feedback that you wouldn’t hear from anyone else. It is precisely the kind of feedback you need to make changes that often catapult your business in powerful, compelling, and high impact ways.

You can benefit from working with me if you are a:

  • New photographer who wants to quickly up-level your business.
  • Photographer who has been in business 5 to 7 years and wants the "push" that will grow your revenues even higher.
  • Established photographer who is already successful,but needs assistance in answering the question...."Now What?"
  • Studio owner who is ready to hear what you need to start, stop, and keep doing to kick your potential up to a much higher level and are willing to commit to taking action.

Education and Accolades

I earned my professional coaching certification through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and am a leadership development coach and instructor for the Federal Government. I am a certified practitioner for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the Energy Leadership Index(ELI), Leadership Practices Index (LPI) and Situational Leadership.

I am also an active member in the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and Virginia Professional Photographers Association (VPPA).

On the Personal Side

When I'm not coaching or leading seminars, I spend my free time doing photography and creating portraits for home decor. I also teaches photography skills workshops to consumers in the Broadlands, Virginia area.

Happily married to my wife Shelley since 1987, and am enjoying the journey of raising a son who is now in the United States Marine Corps, and daughter who is a freshman at VCU. I enjoys all sports, fine wine and reading motivational books.
