BIO: Douglas began his commercial photography career in New York City focused on newsmakers, celebrities, and architecture, working for advertising, corporate, and editorial clients. His images have appeared in Newsweek, People, Business Week, Life, The New York Times, Forbes, and Fortune, among others. He currently works at the University at Buffalo as a photographer for University Communications. He is also President of Print Collection, Inc. a web based gallery selling fine art prints of commissioned, licensed and public domain imagery. On most cold snowy winter nights he can be found outside his garage photographing snowflakes in the dark. His work has been published in The New YorkerThe Buffalo News and many other blogs and online publications. The first public exhibition of his snowflake photography, was shown at CEPA Gallery, Fall 2015.

STATEMENT: Snowflakes have become my passion. They avail themselves to me within the small window of time I have to photograph them and the short time that they exist. Their delicacy, strength and elegance keep me standing in the cold on endless black nights.

Living in the Buffalo, NY area there are so many negative identifications this city has with snow. I find it a joyous task to reveal these gems that are hiding in plain sight.
