• About the juror

    Michael Collette invented the large format digital scanning back and founded Better Light in 1992 to develop and manufacture these unique image capture devices. Mike enjoys the challenge and reward of using a 4x5 field camera with a scanning back for landscape photography, from sweeping panoramas to intimate portraits of natural subjects. His large prints attempt to recreate not only the detail and color of the scene, but also the emotional impact that caused him to set up the camera in the first place.
