The next few years saw experience gained with various studios and in 1988, at 24 years old, Julian set up his first studio and darkroom.
Commercially he is represented in London, New York and Hong Kong. His work has been featured in the Association of Photographers awards, and regularly in the ‘Lürzer’s Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide’ annual.

Doug is a non-award winning professional teacher, writer and photographer and I refuse to write in the third person. I just love making photographs both on film and digitally. My style can perhaps best be described as ‘style-less’. I make images of anything and everything that catch my eye, in whatever style I feel catches the mood and emotion of the moment and most of my time is spent in the landscape.
He loves teaching others, both on my own workshops and for Charlie Waites “Light & Land” tour company. I write regularly for Outdoor Photography magazine and sell my images to collectors world-wide. There are many photographers whose work fills me with admiration and inspires me to try harder. I fear I will never reach the heights they have attained, but I enjoy trying.
