    Well, he had/has a ton of them and all the assorted things you can add on like the 4x10 back. In the video he seemed to really push them. That is all from memory as it has been a long time since I saw it. It was hard to listen to as it seemed off the top of his head and he is a mouth breather. I think the problem is because he is so big. So, there was a lot of panting going on.

    I got to know Clyde when I lived in Ft. Myers. I would stop whenever I had a chance at his studio/house in Big Cypress Nat. Preserve. Since I worked for the Florida Dept. of Environment Protection we always talked about the environment not photography. Now that I live in New Mexico I really miss those talks. But at least I have 4 of his prints on my wall.

    If you are impressed with his images on his web site or in the magazines, you should see them in person. He has a travelling exhibit going around the country now, stopping at small cities. For the month of May and June it will be in Lubbock, TX at Texas Tech. A definite 'must see'.

    Clyde is adamant about saving the natural state of the environment. He is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Totally down to earth. He gives workshops a couple times a year, but it is hard to get inot one.

    Brian,

    What one thing about his vision or technique or way of looking at the craft impressed you the most, or stays with you the most?

    Clyde studied architecture in college. As such, he understands spatial dimensions. The one thing he always said about his photos is that he always leaves a space in them for the viewer to enter the scene. That is, he wants the viewer to feel they are part of the scene. When he first started to print in 5' x 7' size, I mentioned that it would be interesting to mount them curved so the viewer would literally stand inside of the photo. He thought for a moment and then said "Maybe if they were mounted on curve plexiglass." It was only a thought.

    I usually don't like extreme wide-angle work, but I enjoy his very much.
    art is about managing compromise

    I have visited Clyde Butcher's gallery in Big Cypress. Some of the really big prints are very impressive. Standing in front of one you really get a feeling of being in the swamp. Look down to see if your feet are wet

    My only criticism, if I dare, is that he sometimes likes to burn in skies in a very unnatural manner.

    Some of Clyde Butcher's work is in the March 2003 issue of Conde Nast Traveler magazine.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
