Born in San Francisco, Doug Parks has spent his life in Northern California. He began taking pictures as a young boy with his father teaching him the appreciation of nature through hiking, camping, hunting and fishing.
Most of Doug's images are in his home area of California where there is a wide variety of natural wonders to behold from the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Doug spent many years in the technical aspects of photography, from camera repair to printing and equipment sales. After retiring from a twenty-five year career in communications technology, he now devotes his time to his passion of photography.
Never rushing to take the photo, he returns to areas many times until "things are just right". Doug is always on the lookout for natural texture and color for his moments of time.
