Douglas Williams Photography

I've been an architectural and commercial photographer in Vancouver since 1983. I've shot silk purses and sows' ears (really!) as well as theatre, executives and boilermakers. My preferred subjects are architecture and interiors and I've developed an excellent eye for buildings as photographic art.

Professional photography requires a trained eye. I provide you with images that can only be created by someone with years of experience.

My Work

I have a clean style with classic composition, strong contrast, and great textures. I provide architectural, commercial, corporate, and advertising photography services in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.


Aside from architectural, commercial, and corporate photography, I also offer photography workshops, tutoring, and basic classes. I can help you to refine your photographer's eye so that you can take your personal work to a new level. I will give you an introduction to the basics or I can help you to hone your already developing skills. You can learn in classes or one to one. I enjoy showing people how to see with a camera.

I teach a class in architectural photography at Langara College and a basic digital photography at False Creek Community Centre.

Stock Photographs

When I am not shooting specifically for clients, I flex my artistic muscles by shooting people, landscapes, cityscapes, events and travel. These stock photographs are available for use in advertising or editorial pieces. My high quality stock photos can help to elevate brochures, magazines, books, and websites.

Art Photography

My art images are marketed to hotels and other businesses by Farmboy Fine Arts.

I exhibit my work in my home during the Westside Studio Tour in May and June.
