Michael Francis

A seasonal job at Yellowstone National Park 30 years ago was all it took to get Michael hooked on wildlife photography.

Awed by the animals, the young employee quickly purchased a 35 mm camera to snap his first images of nature.

Michael confesses, he never knows when a special shot will happen but he contends a good photographer can up the odds by knowing the subject matter and placing oneself, “in the right place at the right time.” He firmly believes, “It isn’t just luck. You make

your own just by being out in the field.”
