|Robb Douglas was born in Edmonton in 1950 and began his 26-year career as a still photographer with CFRN television, later switching to 16mm film and eventually video. He moved to Regina to work for CBC National TV News, then to Vancouver. After racing endurance horses in BC for a couple of years, Douglas eventually shifted his focus to boats. For Skookum Tugs Douglas donned a pair of caulk boots and learned to run up and down logs with his cameras as nimbly as a boom man. He lives in North Vancouver with his wife Linda and their daughter Kate.|
