About the Photographer
Michael Francett began his exploration and adventures in the Adirondack Park at the age of 8. Especially relevant was his concentration on New York State’s highest peak, Mt. Marcy. Perhaps most noteworthy is that Mike has climbed, skied and hiked in his home range ever since. His digital studio is in Queensbury, NY, just outside of the Adirondack Park boundary. From there, he explores and photographs world renowned wild and special places for their natural beauty and rugged landscapes.
Mike talks about his Approach to Photography
My approach is based on a belief that through image capture I can document, and present, the special ecology of the Adirondack Park. Furthermore, I promote the continued need for protection and preservation. There is passion in my mission to communicate the visual beauty of the natural world. As a result, I hope that viewers of my work will come to appreciate the complexities of this planet in addition to help preserving it. Nature offers infinite views and changing light. My challenge is finding that special scene that combines natural elements to create an image to share, like this image of Clear Pond.
Mike says the camera is definitely not the most important element in a pleasing photograph His current tool of choice is the Nikon D810 with a sturdy tripod. It provides a flexible system, along with high resolution digital files that are capable of large print sizes. Even though wide angle lenses can produce a dramatic effect, he prefers the more natural perspective of fixed focal length primes lenses in the 35-85mm range. Mike’s favorite lens is the Tamron 45mm f1.8 because it provides sharp detailed images when paired to the Nikon D810. The tools used to create are not as important as something else. Mike has a desire and passion to continue exploring the great wilderness called The Adirondacks. He brings back Adirondack photography (and other) that evokes a sensory experience. That experience is unique to this special corner of the world.
