Nature Exposed – Exceptional Landscape Imagery by Zack Clothier

My new website is back online and completely renovated! I feel that it is now much cleaner and easier to browse through the galleries and purchase prints. The website also displays well on ipads, android, and other mobile devices. I welcome any comments on the new design. Check it out! www.ZackClothierPhotography.com

Here’s a teaser from my New Work collection, titled “Magical Moments In Nature”, taken along the upper reaches of Soda Butte Creek, just inside the northeast boundary of Yellowstone National Park in Montana.

In Ansel’s Footsteps – Twelve Significant Photographs in any One Year (2012)

Ansel Adams once said, “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.” This doesn’t sound like very many but at that time Ansel was shooting with an 8×10 large format camera, a very heavy and bulky piece of equipment. Photography has evolved drastically since then with the advent of digital cameras, which are lighter and much more compact than the old field cameras Adams hauled around. With high capacity memory cards and bigger hard drives one can take hundreds of photographs without even thinking twice about it.

While it seems that taking photographs has gotten a lot easier, actually making significant photographs that stand out above the rest is a skill that still requires hard work and dedication, lots of patience, and sometimes even a little luck!

Due to an extensive amount of traveling this year I just couldn’t narrow it down to just twelve, so below are thirteen images from 2012 which are significant to me. Clicking on the image will open a larger, high quality version. Happy New Year everyone, Enjoy!
