Photographic Story Caloosahatchee River, outside of Ft. Myers, Florida – This picture was taken at daybreak while there was still fog lingering over the river. While I was taking this photograph I suddenly saw an alligator rush toward me. Fortunately, I had my tripod in front of me, and the gator swam past me chasing a school of fish! Analog – Archival Silver Gelatin Photograph Clyde’s silver gelatin black and white images are created using an 8” x 10”, 11” x 14”, or 12” x 20” view camera. Clyde prints his images in his own darkroom on fiber-base paper in a limited edition. The photographs are selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. His images come in sizes from 8” x 10” inches to 5’x 8’ feet. His love of art and nature is seen in the exceptional detail and more subtle textures of his photography.
