Born in the United Kingdom, Doug moved, with his family, to the west coast of Canada at a young age. There he soon fell in love with the rugged coast and mountains of British Columbia, spending as much time as possible camping and hiking among the many provincial parks. A year in London at the age of 17 opened his eyes to a much bigger and interesting world.
After returning home to Canada it wasn't long before he was making his way to Central America, where he was eventually taken under the wing of a number of picture agencies. Many years and countries later, Doug returned to the UK where he has lived for the past 25 years, the last ten in the leafy Royal Borough of Greenwich.
His work, both written and photographic, appears in a variety of publications worldwide: The Guardian, The Times of London, Newsweek, The Daily Telegraph, The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, The Melbourne Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Sunday Times and Sunday Times Travel Magazine, The Daily Mail, The Daily Mirror, Der Volkskrant, Lonely Planet publications and magazine, National Geographic Traveller among others.
His photography is represented by Getty Images, Lonely Planet Images, Corbis Images and Axiom Photographic; in addition, he has recently ventured into the world of TV as a presenter, all new and interesting and proving you can teach an old dog new tricks.
