Chattanooga, TN, United States
I'm Doug Strickland, a Chattanooga, Tennessee based independent photojournalist.
I worked as a staff photojournalist at the Danville Advocate-Messenger in Danville, Kentucky, and the Texarkana Gazette in Texarkana, Texas, before relocating to Chattanooga to tell the daily stories of my home town. I spent six and a half years on staff as a photojournalist at the Chattanooga Times Free Press, where I was a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
With a decade of experience in journalism, I have an affinity for building relationships which allows for intimate and personal visual storytelling. As a native of the South, I have a personal connection to the communities and issues I photograph which fuels ethical and empathetic photography of a complicated and diverse region of the U.S.
Centrally located about two hours from Atlanta, Nashville, Knoxville, Huntsville and Birmingham, I'm positioned to cover a wide range of communities across Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.
