Doug Hartley grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona. He attended Coronado High School and Arizona State University. Doug developed a passion for photography at a young age and was always out and about taking photos of anything and everything he could. In school, he took photos for the school newspaper and for the year books.
He went on to become a talented freelance photographer. Freelancing for a local newspaper gave him access to a press pass which enabled him to gain entry upfront and back stage at concerts. Doug was able to combine his love of Rock and Roll and his love for photography to create the great shots you see on this web site. He took hundreds of wonderful photos and had a great future.
Late one September night in 1971 a drunk driver hit him while he was riding his 10-speed bike home with a friend. He died that night. Doug’s sister and mom became the keeper of this collection and now it is his sister and her partner who proudly present these previously unavailable photos to the world as a tribute to his life and work.
PhotoFlashbacks.com is the only source for these rare photographs.
The objective of the PhotoFlashbacks web site is to make available prints of Doug’s photos at affordable prices in an effort to “refresh our memories of that special moment in time”.
