Following a degree in Photography from the Fashion Institute of Technology, Michael Dooley worked for many years as a still photographer and a chief lighting technician in the film and video industries. A second degree, in Environmental Geology, led him into a successful career as an environmental consultant, and allowed for excursions into the jungles of the Amazon, the foothills of the Himalayas, the ruins of Guatemala, and other exotic habitats worldwide, with his camera.
Michael Dooley’s photos from India, the Himalayas, and Brazil have appeared in various travel publications. Photos taken in the Ecuadorian rainforest were published in a ten-page spread in Parabola, an international magazine devoted to “the exploration of the quest for meaning,” as well as in the published books of fellow travelers. Michael is a regular contributor to Bosque the magazine and ABQ inPrint, both published in New Mexico.
