Douglas Beasley is owner and publisher of SHOTS Magazine, a quarterly journal of eclectic black & white photography now in its’ 35th year of publication. Doug’s personal vision explores the spiritual aspects of people and place and is concerned with how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life. His work has been exhibited and published worldwide. Having been a fine-art photographer and photo workshop instructor for many years.
“I want to see photographs that have a strong, honest direct connection to their subject or photos with a sense of mystery or meaning. A compelling image may ask more questions than it answers. There should be an awareness how of the entire frame is utilized not just subject and background. I react to a personal point of view and want to feel the photographer’s presence in the process rather than submitting what they think will be liked by me or others. And even better if something of the maker is revealed as well as the subject.”
