Darkroom Intro

Meet Us!

My name is Daniel Jolly, and I have owned Clear Image since the beginning of 2009.

I’m fortunate enough to work in an incredibly unique industry.  I get to work with beauty, tools, and technology everyday…what else could a man want? (Well, my beautiful wife and 4 kids of course!)

I started working at Clear Image while I was in college studying Photography. After becoming manager of the Lynnwood lab, my wife and I left the country for our dream of doing Christian Aid work overseas.

After traveling all over for a couple of years, with a few stops at Clear Image along the way, we settled down for a couple of years working at a hotel in the Turks and Caicos Islands. I was the do it all guy performing on the darbuka drum with the local rake and scrape band, BBQ on the beach chef, bartendar and server, and menu planner.

I finally realized my dream of making my passion of photography and my entreprenuerial leanings into a full time business when I had the opportunity to purchase Clear Image in 2009. I was very excited to become the new owner but knew it was a tough business to get into, and that changes would have to be made.

We pride ourselves on “white glove” service…in fact, you might see us handling your negatives and prints with actual white gloves! 🙂 We are always expanding our services if we feel it would serve you well, or we just plain love it.  Metal Prints and composites, photo gifts, and cotton papers are some of our newest additions.  Our large portrait studio in Marysville and comfortable viewing lobby proudly exhibits our beautiful portraiture of High School Seniors, Families, Children, Newborns and Expecting Mothers, Pets, and the ever important business portrait / headshot.

Our Darkroom next door to our photography studio allows us to perform a full range of framing services as well as our photo lab fun like “shoe box” photo scanning service, museum quality canvas wraps, photo restorations, and a ton more.  If you spend more than a few minutes on this site, you will know what I mean!

We can hardly keep track of all that we do here, and this our our life!  Please feel free to call us or email us and barrage us with questions…we love to serve!

Our tagline is “Artists at Heart, Professionals in Action”…I think that sums up what we strive to be.
