Meet Doug

PHOTOGRAPHER AND MEMBER OF 26 CHARACTERS

Doug was born in Princeton, NJ, but raised in a suburb of Minneapolis. He grew up sailing in the summer and cross country skiing in the winter. In the spring and fall he and his dad would go out and take pictures. He has a masters degree from the University of Wisconsin Madison, but still can’t spell to save my life. He teaches part-time at Columbia College Chicago and lives in a quaint burg just outside the city limits of Chicago. He's worked for companies as large as International Paper and as small as some local free newspaper you find in a coffee shop. And he loves anything that gets him traveling.

Doug likes to paint with light.

His strong background in photography and teaching make him the perfect photographer to have on set, or on location.

Doug has been fortunate enough to work with a variety of companies and individuals.
