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.

Mission: Images that inspire

Wrapping up the Creative Retreat in Galveston, Texas. They look all prim and proper but behind those masks are some awesome photographers. They created images that were out of the box and even "naked" in the bathtub -- but they will have to tell you that story.

I'm sure some of you have read about the fires in Brazil's Pantanal region. I got an update today from Southwild Brazil , the tour company we use down there. It's good to have first-hand knowledge. Here's a link to my blog post:

Twenty years ago a white-striped longtail skipper showed up at Brazos Bend State Park - Texas Parks and Wildlifeon the Upper Texas Coast. It was big news and I had to go photograph it for Gary Clark's column in the Houston Chronicle. Today, I see it at a neighborhood park and it's no big deal. Amazing how things change. Such a lovely creature.

Canon R5 Mirrorless — Autofocus with Fast Birds


I got out to East Beach in Galveston yesterday to test the autofocus system on the new Canon R5. I used the new 100-500mm lens with a 1.4x extender. Please read my thoughts, see my tests, and let me know what you think. Thanks!
