My biography & experience
It's about finding extraordinary in ordinary places!
Doug has had a life-time experience with photography. As the owner of an advertising agency, he has hired and worked with some of Canada’s best photographers, taking day-in-the-life photos on many Canadian university campuses, hanging out of aircraft taking aerial photos, or spending time in studios working with controlled lighting.
Doug’s first cameras were a 120 Rolliflex and 35 mm Canons and Nikons. A basement darkroom was the source of the earliest prints, and colour transparencies were developed by hand. Today, it’s a digital world: the darkroom has transformed into a 37” monitor, and the cameras are all digital Nikons.
Doug is a firm believer in the gospel of, “Chasing the Light”. He has made many of his golf course and landscape photos by getting into position in the middle of the night, and waiting for the sunrise. He also has a habit of checking the weather forecast to see when a storm will break and loves to capture the sky as the weather changes. So much depends on being in the right place at the right time and it can take a lifetime of experience to make that happen.
