Melbourne born and bred, Doug Porter's background in Art College was followed by extensive time work in the professional photographic industry.
Although his passion is with Italy, he very much appreciated the beauty to be found all over the world, naturally this included Australia with images from his own 'backyard' - urban, coast and country. He first travelled to Italy and Sicily in 2006 and an immediate love affair was hatched. So much about Italy captures his passion - the antiquity, the food, the people, the sense of family and the love of life.
He has taken many thousands of photos in his travels, and created ‘sketches’ on which he has built the scene that he envisaged. The final images reflects a scene as Doug has visualised, not always as a literal recording of a scene but in many instances, a more romantic look.
Doug is proud to say that Fresco Images can be found in homes and commercial premises in many parts of the world including the United Kingdom, United States, Italy and of course Australia.
