Photography has always been my passion and now with web design. It is a perfect complement to photography.
I started doing photography at sixteen when I lived in Palmer, Massachusetts. During high school I took several graphic arts and photography classes, which really peaked my interest. In the early 1970’s I bought my first SLR camera, which I used mostly for black and whites. I was fortunate to have the space to build my own dark room where I taught myself all the basic skills of developing not only black and white, but color photos, as well.
A couple of years later I moved into medium format cameras where I really began my love for outdoor photography. Then, in 1977, our family moved to Arizona where my first job was as photo lab tech. I then found work in the high-tech industry in the manufacture of IBM compatible terminals, controllers and PCs as a test technician and then moved up to test engineer department.
After 15 years of marriage my wife, son and I moved to Colorado where I also experienced a change of careers to being a superintendent for a high-end custom homebuilder. Living in Colorado on the beautiful Front Range my outdoor photography became more of a passion than a hobby. The Rocky Mountains provided endless opportunities to expand my landscape photography skills.
Once housing construction dried up I started my own website, dougniedermillerphotography.com. For the last 3 years I’ve built several websites since my own, like DCM Travel Reviews, Cyndy’s Garden of Life, Manyoni Partners, Wall Craft Professional Paint, Velvet Orchid, Kinnikinnik Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and DCM Web marketing (this site).
Through my home construction connections, I was pursued to begin commercial photography for a local cabinetmaker, Plush Designs, and I’m now reaching out to former sub-contractors and other small businesses and charities in the Colorado Springs area. My DCM Web Marketing website is also a resource for people wishing to build their own websites as I list many of my favorite tools for website construction.
My website are specialized using WordPress with StudioPress themes.
