Respect the Shooter: Douglas Lyle Thompson



“6am Swim,” Palm Springs, CA

“As soon as I finished shooting this sunrise, I hopped in for a swim.”

“On The Moon in Musandam,” Musandam Peninsula, Oman

“A friend and I went to Musandam, Oman for a few days to look at the beautiful fjords and fishing villages that were over 1,000 years old. Much of my work derives from obsession and this is a photograph of a beach that I was obsessed with in ways that are hard to describe. I found it funny how more people preferred driving their fancy [Toyota] Land Cruisers around on the sand rather than laying out sunning.”

“Little Jumper,” Aliso Creek, Orange County, CA

“My two brothers organized a trash clean-up along a mile long stretch of the Aliso Creek. I was standing on the bridge you can use to cross it when my younger brother decided he would jump across it.”
