The diverse photography portfolio of Doug Williams contains several examples of true mastery of the medium. Few photographers have the ability to capture the beauty of snow-capped mountains on one assignment, and the aura of an industrial environment on another. Doug Williams is one of these photographers, who possesses a great amount of talent throughout the medium.
Doug has been working in photography since 1974, in such diverse fields as photojournalism, architectural, food, product, industrial, publicity, and executive portraiture. In all of these areas, Doug has proven himself to be a master of the medium through his keen awareness of light and composition.
Our staff especially enjoyed reviewing the portfolio of this Canadian-based photographer and we feel you will do the same. We rarely have the opportunity of reviewing a diverse portfolio, which is technically and aesthetically strong in every area.
Doug studied photography at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, Alberta , education at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., and filmmaking at the University of British Columbia.
Doug speaks Spanish fluently, having lived in Barcelona for two years. Since 1998, Doug has been an instructor at the Focal Point Centre for Photography.
Current interests centre upon architectural photography, landscapes, film stills and teaching.
