Doug Beezley Photography | About

With most websites, the "About" section generally provides pertinent information about the organization or person whose site you're visiting. And, in the photography/art world it is not unusual for there also to be an "artist's statement" about his or her creative passions or reasons for being involved in the activity, their creative process and/or journey.

I have actually thought about an artist's statement quite a lot and you will be relieved to know that I am not going to utter deep philosophical or cosmic introspection. I enjoy photography as a hobby because it is a vehicle for expressing whatever creative skills and energy I may (some say "may not") possess. Photography, to me, is not only about capturing a good or great image but also about capturing the experience. Seeing something, hearing it, smelling it, feeling it and sensing it is as important to me as capturing the actual image. Nothing more, nothing less.

As for me, Doug Beezley, I'm a native Coloradan who was born in Denver but grew up on the High Plains of Eastern Colorado (Burlington) but have lived in a suburb of Atlanta for almost 35 years. My professional career took me from Denver to Chicago, Phoenix, Birmingham and finally Atlanta before I retired. In addition to photography, I also enjoy fly-fishing as an entry into the natural world. Catching fish (trout and salmon) is great but just being there is greater. There's nothing quite like a day on the Colorado River at Lees Ferry, Arizona to completely fill your senses! For that matter, a small stream in the North Georgia mountains is really good, too.

In the process of building and maintaining this site my goal is to take the viewer on a photographic experience through both the images themselves and the accompanying narrative. I hope I have accomplished this and I hope you enjoy your journey through this site.
