About Me

Michael Pachis

After spending 40 years in the Information Technology business I decided to find a creative outlet for relief from all those years of left-brain work. I discovered photography and am having a blast creating images, especially those that have any thing to do with animals. I want to create compelling portraits of animals which capture the essence of our fellow creatures with whom we share this planet.

Most of my images are created at the world class Memphis Zoo. I want to promote the idea that high impact and artistic images of animals can be created wherever animals are found. Using solid photographic technique like paying attention to background and depth of field can yield photographs which connect us with the natural world. Even if the subject animals live in a man made environment, don’t lament the fact that you may not be able to travel to remote parts of the world. Get out and practice some Zootography!
