Douglas Andrew Henderson is my full name, but I go by Doug.  Douglasandewhenderson.com was an available domain name, so that’s why I’m using my full name and not because of some pretension to fanciness.  Over the past few years, I rediscovered my interest in photography.  Photography was an interest in college and for a number of years post college but then, as often happens, life intruded.  In my case that meant a 30 year or so gap in pursuing it as a passion, but the good news is that I have more money these days to squander on gear!  Plus, business and personal travel takes me to many interesting places and the camera gives me a purpose to go out exploring.   I have also discovered that my own backyard, both literally and also figuratively in the sense of my wider backyard here on Long Island, NY and New York City, is filled with plenty of great subjects to shoot.  Beyond photography, which was the inspiration for this web site, I have always been deeply into music both as a guitar player and, mostly, as a fan.  My musical interests cover a broad spectrum, starting with the rock of my youth and extending deeply into jazz, classical, folk, country, world…you name it with a few exceptions.  My career has been in the audio industry for over 35 years, most recently for a bit more than a decade as president of Bowers & Wilkins North America.  I intend to post on photography, music and general topics of interest to me.   Thanks for finding your way here, accidentally or not!
