Whispering Peaks Photography
Glad you decided to take a moment to learn a little more about me. My name is Doug Hammerberg and I own Whispering Peaks Photography and Woodworking based in Kalispell Montana.
I am a self taught photographer specializing in nature based abstracts, wildlife and landscape photography.
When I am not in the field doing photography, I am in my little wood shop in the shadows of the mountains here in north west Montana.It is here I get the inspirations from nature to create my one of a kind wood furniture, wood art, wood pendants and other pieces such as primitive style pie cabinets, jelly cabinets, veggie bins, wood frames, tables, chest of drawers. My styles are a combination of primitive, country, cabin and farmhouse using pine and hardwoods.
Often the beauty of nature is overlooked in the search for that ultimate shot! In my nature based abstracts show cased on this website, I attempt to share with you those subtle views of nature in its natural state and in ways only special settings can capture. Colors are all natural and as captured in camera in the field.
I feel photography and woodworking are both journeys without end. It's about always learning, always finding unique ways to share my work and creating fresh ideas to share and to provide to my clients.
My Forest Illusions are all captured natural and in camera. No color enhancement. I use a combination of shutter speed, planned camera movement, natural lighting and the use of the scene before me to create each unique capture.
Nature Based Abstracts can be captured naturally by finding a simple flow of water, a branch, a forest scene or they can be a combination of many scenes I have seen and then with just a tinge of special affects, turn them into a wave or a whirlpool.
My Mystic Trout Series is often a one of a kind capture of the rarest fish in Montana....or is it just another fish tale? No one is certain....sometimes, not even me.
Two places in my life have always brought me peace....the mountains and the ocean. Water and terra firma have a heavy influence in my work as a result of that peaceful feeling that captivates me when in nature. Opposite yet complementary elements.
I hope you will enjoy viewing my work and following along. Perhaps you will find something to add to your homes. A little piece of Montana crafted for you.
Either way, come on in and have a seat along the creek at the base of the mountains and relax. Enjoy from your busy day and find peace.
I am also a certified Made in Montana business.

This September 2020 I lost my bride to cancer. It did not defeat her. My work forward will be totally fed by her inspiration.
Thanks for taking a moment to learn a little about me and my work! To the day!
