After growing up in Brockport, New York, Jeff Clarke attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and earned a degree in photography in 1976. He continued his education at the State University of New York in Plattsburgh, where he focused on working with natural landscapes. He designed a photographic method to evaluate wildlife habitats and completed a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies in 1981.
After graduating, he was awarded a position funded by the National Science Foundation at the University of Georgia’s Institute of Ecology, and he was subsequently hired as a university photographer. In 1985, Jeff relocated to Burlington, Vermont and opened a commercial photography studio. His clients include corporations, colleges and universities, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, artists, and entrepreneurs. Depending on the needs of each client, he shoots on location or in his fully equipped studio.
In addition to commercial photography, Jeff explores natural landscapes with large-format black and white photographs. Galleries in Vermont and New York display his fine-art prints. Read more on Jeff's website.
While exploring and communing in the world I often see compositions that strike a chord within me. To capture the music of each scene with my camera is especially thrilling and satisfying. When I transform the images into finished prints, their harmonies continue to resonate within me, and I enjoy sharing them with others.
Jeff Clarke's prints will be on exhibit through February 28, 2014.
Opening reception is February 7, 2014 4:00-7:00 p.m.
