"All day long, I dream about photography." - I started doing event and portrait photography when I was still in junior high school... I went on to study photography at a local college, while in high school, and built a darkroom in my basement.
I stepped out of the darkroom to enter college and postgraduate training, but never lost my interest in the photographic arts. I returned to photography, and the digital darkroom, just a few years ago.
I quickly found myself covering sports for family and friends, and began posting much of my work at www.flickr.com/dougfelts. I was a shooter for www.waprepsports.net for the 2010-2011 Central Kitsap Cougar football and cheer teams. I was approached to do other events: holiday family portraits, senior portraits, a military retirement ceremony, a wedding.
I have enjoyed taking photos for running and triathlon events. I offered my work for sale for a while, and now find that my own involvement in sport leaves me little time to work for others.
