Doug Johnson is a highly respected professional photographer and educator. His work has taken him across this amazing planet; from South Africa, Ireland, Canada, and Cuba to his own home in Missoula Montana and all over the US.
He has taught along side many highly esteemed educators including; Alison Shaw, Freeman Patterson and good friends Neil Chaput de Saintonge, Eileen Rafferty and Tim Cooper.
