A second, revised version of that book, was released in October 2010. Sue’s is also the author of Digital Painting in Photoshop ( 2009). She is part of a four person show that traveled throughout the US for over two years. The show was all infrared photography and contained over 100 images.

Douglas Beasley

Douglas Beasley’s personal vision explores the spiritual aspects of people and place and is concerned with how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life. He hopes that his photographs act as prayer-like offerings meant as a departure point for the viewer’s own visual or spiritual journey. After receiving a BFA from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, he worked for many years as a commercial photographer while pursuing his vision in fine art. Much of his art is supported by grants and commissions and has been widely exhibited and collected. Douglas’ photos are featured in numerous magazines and published and exhibited internationally.
