About Me

BIO

An avid outdoorsmen and self-taught photographer, Zack has been photographing the natural world for over 10 years, and has been shooting semi-professionally for the past four of those. He grew up in the small town of Corinth, NY, often referred to as “The Gateway to the Adirondacks”. Fascinated with wildlife and nature in general he captured his first photos at the age of 13, soon replacing the old 35mm point and shoot camera with a manual SLR. He presently shoots with a digital SLR all of the time. Although much of his work is of the Adirondack State Park, his love of nature and photography has taken him all over the United States including Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. His photographs have appeared in the pages of several regional and national publications such as Adirondack Life, Montana Magazine, Montana Outdoors, The UK Metro, The Star, as well as others. Zack Clothier resides in the Adirondack Park, in Athol, NY.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Thank you for taking the time to have a look at the natural world as I see it. I hope you will enjoy and also be inspired by the images displayed here. These photographs are the result of my deep-rooted passion for the wilderness and the wild animals that live in these hostile, sometimes unforgiving environments. With each image I attempt to bring you, the viewer, to that place, at that very moment when I clicked the shutter. With just my camera alone it is almost impossible to reproduce and convey a scene exactly as I experienced it in the field. I employ the use of today’s digital darkroom along with numerous field techniques to better express what I saw and felt at that particular moment in time. Although I enjoy this entire process, just being out there exploring these magnificent landscapes is what drives me to capture them for all to see. Through my images I hope to raise awareness to help protect these natural places for future generations to come.

    Wild,extraordinary,exquisite. You definitely have the EYE to see things in a unique way and of course artful technique. And as you say, you have to be in the beautiful surroundings in order to capture them. I don’t see how you could possibly get any better work, but I’m sure you’ll figure that out!

  2. Hi Zack: I am an amateur astronomer occasionally living in the Adirondacks for the last 20 years. I have been taking astrophotos for about 30 years and still feel I’m a beginner in this pursuit. I also got I shot of a Quadrantid passing through the constellation Corvus. As far as the ho-hum conifers on the horizon my shot does not come close to the composition and care with which you processed this exceptional photo! Not to say the the stamina you had to endured on that frigid pre-dawn morning. Best wishes, Bob Fisher

  3. Hi Zack: Even though I’m a retired H.S. Biology teacher, ( with a scientific background), I’m still not facile with all the messaging options of the Net. Being analog old school getting “connected” is still a challenge for for me. So, for now, I just have my web address at AOL. Bob
