I'm a sucker for charming photography and artist Douglas Lyle Thompson is just up my alley because of the way he is able to capture a fleeting moment in a pinch without changing a thing.
Focused mainly on lifestyle shots, Thompson was born and raised in sunny California and moved to New York after graduating from college. He doesn't create overly manufactured portraits, but rather sets his muses up to show off their humility in a manner that's truly endearing. Whether they're on the beach or in a studio, Thompson takes pictures of life not simply people.
From snaps he took back in California to big city shoots, Thompson is definitely a photographer to keep an eye on. To follow his work, head on over to his personal website where you'll find links to his portfolio, social media presences and everything else under the sun.
