My Books Photos My PhotoBlog Toads Salt Marshes About Doug Home




In Writing About Nature I tell the story of my creative process in writing and photographing books and how I become an author. I delve into how to go about choosing a theme for a book, where to do research, and how to organize ideas. Using photographs, I tell the story of why writing and photography are important to me and how it has become an important tool in my work.
