Doug is an internationally-acclaimed, highly-skilled visual artist and master storyteller who handcrafts memorable photographic images for editorial, PR, advertising and personal use around the world. He holds the prestigious Master of Photography, Photographic Craftsman Degrees and is a Certified Professional Photographer which celebrates superior photographic competence through photographic competition, advanced education, and service to the profession from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) – the world’s largest nonprofit association for professional photographers, with more than 24,000 members in 54 countries.  These awards, passing the judges workshop and ten years of practice as a judge helped him to become one of only 120 PPA National Affiliate Jurors.  Judging the over 5,000 enters each year has allowed him to stay in touch with trends and techniques used by photographers from around the world. He also holds the Fellowship and Service Awards which are the top awards given by the Professional Photographers of California (PPC), and is Past President, Lifetime Member of the Professional Photographers of Orange County (PPOC). He has won numerous awards for his artistry at the local, state, national and international levels.  One of the highlights was when he received a perfect score of 100 points for his print entitled “Modern Oriental” becoming the (one and only) Grand Award Winner in the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) print competition in 1993. All of these honors and accolades helped Doug become a member of the Fuji Talent Team in 1986. He would do R & D projects with them and then teach others about those new products around the world. This helped him to stay in touch with technical advances in the industry, from the film to digital era. In 2001, Doug was asked to teach a portrait photography at the University of California Irvine Extension Program which he did until 2012. With more of Doug’s work being done in commercial and editorial photography he is now a member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP). With 1,000’s of his images being used by publications around the world he was asked in 2007 to become a contributor for Getty Images and in 2013, he was asked to join ZUMA Press as a contributor.
