About Doug

Doug Johnson is a Colorado native now living in Missoula, Montana where he is on the faculty of the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. He shoots and leads field workshops in some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country.

Doug’s photographic work has covered many diverse projects in the documentary, commercial, fine art and educatonal fields. Assignments have taken him from coyote killing in Wyoming to the last stages of a woman’s life to the graffiti covered alleys and abandoned buildings of Denver.

He is the lead photographer for the recently published The Art of the State ‐ 120 Artworks for 120 Years: Selections from the Montana Museum of Art and Culture.

Before a life‐changing pursuit of photographic art, Doug was an outdoor educator for more than 20 years, teaching people backcountry skills in mountaineering, avalanche awareness and wilderness first aid.

No matter where you are in your photographic journey, Doug’s balance of the aesthetic with the technical can help you further express your unique vision.
