Doug Writes: -
“About me - I am a full time professional teacher, writer, printer and photographer. I make images which are mainly abstract and impressionistic in nature using intentional camera movement and multiple exposure techniques. I haven’t won any awards and I revel in obscurity with my wife and my faithful dog, Stan.
My talk - I think you asked me to discuss my development as a photographer from my early work as a more conventional landscape photographer, turning professional and my gradual move away from the more accepted forms of photography into the styles I now practice which tend to be more painterly, abstract and less representational. I will include some discussion on the actual in-camera techniques as well as the thought processes and some ideas on working in projects and the benefits of perhaps breaking free from the constraints of conventional techniques or thought processes.”
