Douglas Capron started his career in visual arts filming a documentary of Blues music soon after he moved to Montreal in 1990. This opened the door to shooting portraits of musicians and designing CD covers, which inspired him to explore photography as an art form. It was around this time in 2002, at the International Festival of Films on Art, when he saw the documentary "Alfred Stieglitz: The Eloquent Eye" which was something of an epiphany. It was after seeing this film that he began to commit himself to seriously pursuing photography as a career.
Douglas chooses his subject matter intuitively and is often inspired by music, other artistic mediums such as painting and sculpture and transitions in nature such as the changing of seasons.
In 2009 he was a finalist for the Descubrimientos Prize and presented his work during the PhotoEspana photography festival in Madrid. His work was presented as well that year in New York at the Lucie Awards Best of Show exhibition. He also received an honorable mention for the 2009 PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris awards and placed second in the Nature-Seasons category for the IPA awards
In 2010 he was selected as a finalist and had his work exhibited at the Voies-Off Prize competition in Arles, France. He was also featured in the on-line magazine Lens Culture and received an award of excellence from Photographer's Forum Magazine.
His most current series, Hydrology; Visions in Ice, will be published in a feature article in the upcoming edition of Photo Technique magazine.
