I am a photographer, naturalist, and teacher. My goal as a businesswoman is to promote photography and the natural world through teaching. When people understand photography they can enjoy it for a lifetime. When people experience the natural world they will work to preserve it for future generations. Photography has been my passion since I was a child. Then my world centered around playing outside but as a young adult I morphed into a full-fledge naturalist. Mentors taught me the names of the birds, butterflies, flowers, trees, and dragonflies. Today I share this knowledge through my photography. My photos have appeared in hundreds of magazines including on the cover of AAA Journey, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and Texas Highways. Calendars produced by Arbor Day Foundation, Audubon, Barnes & Noble, Sierra, Smith-Southwestern, and others have used my images. My photos have appeared in ad campaigns, guidebooks, textbooks, and brochures. Every week my photos appear in my husband’s ‘Nature’ column in the Houston Chronicle. Since 1999, Gary’s column has taught readers about the birds, butterflies, and natural world around Houston and the world. Gary Clark and I have worked on seven book projects over the years. Texas Wildlife Portfolio, Texas Gulf Coast Impressions, Portrait of Houston, and Texas: A Photographic Journey were published by Farcountry Press. Backroads of the Texas Hillcountry was published by Voyageurs Press. Enjoying Big Bend National Park was published by Texas A&M Press. Texas A&M Press also published Photographing Big Bend National Park. This book features my photos as well as my writing. Over 10,000 people have attended my photography classes at Leisure Learning since 2000. Leisure Learning is a Houston legend and I’m proud to offer 23 different photography classes at two different locations. Many of these students have joined me on workshops and photo tours. My workshops are offered in a variety of locations including Big Bend National Park, Texas hillcountry and ranches, and southern Arizona. Strabo Tours organizes my international photo tours to Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Galapagos, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Morocco, Peru, and Tanzania. Several of these trips are co-led with my husband Gary Clark. I’ve given back by volunteering thousands of hours with North American Nature Photography Association. I’m a charter member, have led several committees, served on the Board of Directors, and was honored to be the President from 2007-2008. My company KAC Productions licenses my photos as well as the images of 15 other talented photographers.
