CREATOGRAPHY...
I was a watercolor artist before I was a photographer. Early on, I was frustrated that images I photographed for my subjects rarely ended up on film as I saw them when they were shot. I enrolled in some photography classes and began getting more usable images than failures. I learned that what I saw in the viewfinder and not in my head was what was really going on film.

Doug Shiver is a native Georgian and a mainly self taught artist who is deeply fascinated with the South. This fascination manifests itself in much of his work, whether it is photography, graphic design, digital painting or mixed media painting. Some of his earlier work has been called "Southern Nostalgia". However, Doug has since broadened his endeavors to include more of his interest in nature and the sculptural beauty of the earth.

Doug has hiked, caved and photographed many of the areas of GA, TN, NC, CO Alaska and Canada throughout his life and brings all of this beauty and wonder to his work with an overwhelming sense of gratitude and appreciation.He now strives to capture these feelings with the art of the print.
