Doug has always enjoyed photographing the birds, flora and wildlife at the ranch. He and his dad have collected old tractors, farm implements and other antiques for photographing. Recently he has upgraded the blinds and photographic areas because of the increase in visitors to the museum and hands on workshops offered by Texas Photographic Workshops.
In addition to photography, Doug became interested in self sustaining and natural systems in the early 70’s so he started including Permaculture principals in his life and homestead. In addition to 4 small lakes (called tanks in Texas), oak forest, natural grasses, wild flowers, an old barn with antique farm implements, organic garden area, free range chicken/guinea space, photo walk area, water harvesting and more in the museum structure.
We also have a resident herd of cows that are always fun to photograph.
