Every now and then Doug Hoke, our director of photography, will leave the office to take photos because we are short-handed or he just wants to remind all of us that he’s not just our boss, but a pretty darn good shooter as well.

Last Saturday, Doug photographed the Iron Thistle Scottish Heritage Festival and Highland Games in Yukon, Okla. We were short on photographers that day, however, I think he just did it for fun.

If you’d like to see a gallery of even more photos by Doug from the event, click here.
