LaRue worked his way through college as a staff photographer for Texas A&M Journalism Dept. and for United Press International and Associated Press shooting news and NCAA sports—all while earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Design. After college Doug spent 3 years as a Medical Illustrator for the Texas Veterinary Medical Center producing Scientific and Medical Art for publication.

Glaze Photography Studio
In 1994 LaRue founded Glaze Studio, a creative visual media production company. The company’s first contract was with the Texas Department of Transportation producing a statewide identity campaign for motorcycle safety in Texas. The project included logos, illustrations, poster art, billboards, bumper stickers, decals and television commercials starring Jimmie Vaughan with a pair of magic sunglasses and about 50 incredible motorcycles.

For the past 21 years LaRue has owned and operated Glaze Studio and produced a number of exciting media projects including Identity Campaigns, Motion Pictures, Magazines, Documentary Films, Web Sites, Live Concerts and more.

In 1996 La Rue became Co-Publisher of Capitol City Arts & Entertainment Magazine during which he seized the timely opportunity to establish an independent music website just as the Internet was gaining public awareness. After launching the magazine during SXSW the website quickly became very popular worldwide getting as many as 200,000 pageviews a month establishing MusicTexas as one of the first Social Media Network in existence online.
