    2-12-18 Photographer Clyde Butcher got his first camera at six years old. He began taking pictures right away and got and much more sophisticated camera at nine, but he didn’t commit to a career as a photographer until after graduating from a rigorous degree in architecture (Clyde was one of only 13 to graduate from the 425 who’d begun the course with him).

PBS aired a documentary about him, Visions of Florida, which won a Wolfson Award and with film producer Elam Stoltzfus Clyde collaborated on several multimedia projects as a result or which he hosted the several documentaries Big Cypress Swamp: The Western Everglades and Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades, films that highlighted the importance of conservation and art in the state of Florida.
