EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT - AMY CONNER
Occupation Photographer, Darkroom tech, Sales, whatever needs doing ;P I have been with Clear image going on 6 years!
Hails From I am originally from this area. I spent a few years in northern CA and two in FL, but have called western WA home for more than 30 years. Marysville has been home for more than 15 years.
What I love about my job It takes a special touch to draw someone out in front of the camera. Photography is always about what you as an artist see, and I think people are amazing. I get to translate the beauty and uniqueness I see in each person I photograph for the rest of the world- and sometimes even for the subject. People tell me all the time my photographs are the best pictures they've ever had of themselves. This is not because I am the most gifted or technically capable photographer out there. I think it has more to do with the fact that I truly believe they are beautiful, and therefore that is what they show me. In such an image driven culture, it's a pleasure to make a statement about who someone is rather than just what they look like.
Other interests and hobbies I love to create with all kinds of mediums- paint, clay, words... you name it. I also really enjoy the outdoors and hanging out with my kids. My great ambition for this summer is to earn a bunch of new freckles out in my kayak!
