Hi Doug, what's going on?

Mr. Sherman,
Your photo's of Arizona are awesome. I would love to use one of your photos in a demonstration about colors and nature. Not for profit. Please let me know what I must do to get a copy of this particular photo.

Thank You,
Patrick Bourcier

Hi Doug. Amazing the power of Google in finding you after 30 plus years, when I suddenly recalled the few classes I took of yours at CLC, including a field studies course out to Mt. Rainier. You were an inspiration to me in developing a love for photography, especially in scenics and wildflowers. I'd love to connect again sometime if you're interested in catching up. Best wishes. Steve.

Doug, Very impressed with your photos. Would like to know what equipment you use. How do you get such clarity, slowing the shutter speed?

Thank you so much for your knowledgable art! Loved the glaciation series as I recently discovered catastrophism in geology. What a pleasure to see these and imagine that I am there.

Hi Mr. Sherman, This is Eric Gofreed. I saw you at a Sedona Camera Club meeting. You were the guest speaker. I may have seen you a few times since... I'm sure you remember me. Enough teasing. Love your work. Incredible and World Class Photography, Doug

Hi Mr. Sherman, this is Gary Bell, I had geology class with you at CLC and went on the Mt. St. Helens field trip with you in the summer of 1981. I wanted to thank you for inspiring my love of geology. I've been to 49 states, 23 National Parks and 33 other units of the National Park system. All of them for the beauty of geology. Thank you!

Hi Mr. Sherman, This is Chris Knebelsberger (Torgerson now) and I took a couple of classes of yours at CLC in the early 80's, and I went on a couple of those Field Geology trips, too. (That's when I met Sharon Bell, and we've been friends ever since.) You, Dave (I don't remember his last name), and I would also like to go on nature photo shoots together. I still enjoy photography and would like to get into it again and make it my hobby. Anyhow, I've been living in AZ for 30 years. Isn't it a beautiful state? So many gorgeous places to photograph. : )
Sharon Bell 11-Feb-2016 00:45
Mr. Sherman; This is Sharon Bell, your former student at CLC and if you recall, in the summer of 84' we took the geology and botany class out west!! My brother is Gary (who also had you) and I am still dear friends with Chris Knebelsberger!!!!! All of us would love to reconnect with you!!!

Hi Doug:

I am the Director of the Joliet Area Historical Museum, and we are producing an exhibit and documentary for the 25th Anniversary which is quickly approaching. I'd be very interested in use of your photos, specifically for the documentary. We would of course credit any use. I'd be happy to discuss further!

Douglass Moody 03-Dec-2014 17:40
I recently visited Butterfly Wonderland, and a fellow photographer referred me to your photos to assist me in identifying a few unknown lepidoptra. Excellent resource. (And the rest of your website ain't bad either!)
Peter Schwann 14-Nov-2014 02:36
Dear Mr Sherman,
What a fantastic site!
I am writing a paper on Banded Iron Formations and would like to use your photo of the Pele's hair in the lava on Hawaii.

Hi Mr Sherman

I brought up your name the other day while discussing, "who were on your short, list of the best teachers ever". I remember taking every one of your classes, in those temporary, trailers at CLC, while construction was going on. You opened my eyes to this wonderful earth, and I never looked at a rock the same again!

I'm happy you are doing well in your retirement years and your photographs are fantastic.

ps: Thanks for outlining those class notes on the chalk board, you made me a great "outliner"!

Doug your photos are fantastic. I am putting together an online course in physical geography and was wondering whether your photos are available for educational use.
Guest 05-Feb-2014 17:27
Wonderful! I'll return to view more. Thank you!
Michael V. Montgomery 06-Jan-2014 03:48
Doug, I would like to obtain your permission for the one-time use of your recent photo of the mountain lion petroglyph as a cover image for a chapbook of poems about animals. The chapbook will be a free download and is intended for both adults and children. I could include a link to your site so others could be led to your work as I was. Thank you for considering this request. Sincerely Yours, Professor M.V. Montgomery,
Guest 05-Nov-2013 22:15
Hi, I am writing a book about the confusion between art and design and would like to reproduce in this book your photo:(STRA36) Cross bedding in Jurassic Navajo Sandstone, North Coyote Buttes, AZ . It can be used as a superb metaphorical image about stratification of knowledge as precondition to stratification of objects of any sort.
thanking you,
Prof. Tsion Avital
Mrk Nelson 22-May-2013 22:31
Doug, with your permission, I would like to use your image of actinolite on the cover of our rock and gem club's newsletter. I'll attribute it to you and send you a copy if you'd like!
Guest 01-Apr-2013 06:19
beautiful pictures!
Michael Timme 15-Feb-2012 21:47
Doug, I've followed your galleries for quite some time now and really enjoy them. I've been thinking about planning a trip to Sedona, AZ and was wondering for a person with limited time, what areas should I concentrate on to get the "best bang for my buck"?
Kris Hanneman 21-Jan-2012 06:37
Hello, I am a freelance photo editor working on a project for the Death Valley National Park. I am looking for an image of evidence of the Pleistocene-era lake in the Panamint Valley. Is that shown in your image "(CG31) Pluvial delta and strand lines in Panamint Valley, CA?" If so, I would like to propose it to the park for their new outdoor wayside exhibit panel on Panamint Valley.

Please let me know and thanks, Kris Hanneman
Don 09-Sep-2011 17:22
Hello- I would like to use your image of Lake Powell and Navajo Power Station in an environmental physics text I am writing for my students- I would of course attribute. I wanted to take the same photo when we passed through the area in April but didn't search out a good enough vantage point - from which location did you get the shot??

PLMK- thanks,
Don Mathewson

Doug, Your images are spectacular! The next time you are at The Ridges Sanctuary in Door County - stop in the office and say hi! I'd love to use the twinflower and mushroom one on the cover of our newsletter.

Please let me know.
Ray Mathis16-Oct-2009 03:12
Hey Doug. Love the new shots from fall in CO. Makes me wish I'd made the trip. Nice work as always. Went up to UP instead because I have to be out in CO to speak on the 30th Oct. Nice color, but late. Real late. But your NE shots make me wish I'd gone East too. Take care. Hoping Joe will email me his shots soon.
