Doug Elbinger has been making photographs since the age of 14. While still in high school he photographed the Beatles on stage with them during their August 1966 concert in Detroit. Since then Doug has traveled the world seeking interesting people and places to photograph. Highlights from his early photo-journalism career include Robert F Kennedy's presidential campaign and the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. For over forty years Elbingers' photos have appeared in countless books, magazines, newspapers, annual reports, album covers, trade journals, catalogs, and web sites. Artists, models, politicians, business people, and families everywhere count on Doug to "put them in a good light".
Based in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Doug enjoys working on a variety of personal, corporate and institutional projects. Over the span of his career, some of the places Doug has worked include Russia, India, Israel, Egypt, Belize, Nicaragua, Turkey, East Africa, Brazil, and extensive travel all over the USA and Canada. Leveraging skills in fine art portraiture and photojournalism, Doug’s transition to public relations and environmental journalism has been a natural progression.
