"It is impossible for me to escape the observation that Sue Clark captures the essence of the subject in her photographs. It might be the eyes of a person, a horse, a doll or even the wildlife. In other cases, it is the jeweled hands of a wood carver. Then again, there are the details in the grille work and trim of vehicles that appear in her Automotive gallery, and it is even in the extractions of emotional features in her Moods gallery. The ability to reflect this basic essence of insight and emotion in her work sets her apart from those who rely on the panorama or the spectacle to grabs one’s attention. You can feel the personal connection to the subjects she portrays, and you find yourself beginning to know them too."

Gary Larsen - Photographer


 "Sue Clark's photography seems inspired by the works of such artists as Dorothea Lange, Cartier-Bresson, and Weston. She uses background, light and composition, to capture the essence and mystery of the colorful individuals in her viewfinder, in a way that almost looks like the portraiture of John Singer Sargent. She is a force to be reckoned with, in the world of both color and black-and-white photography."

Dr. Daniel Way - Author and Photographer



 World Champion Trainer Wendy Washeleski:

As a long time owner, competitor, trainer and instructor of world champions in the equine industry, I have been viewing professional equine photo's for over 30 years now.  I have seen them through many different lenses, and I must say that I am touched, moved, and inspired by your equine photo's.  Your ability to capture the horses true character, heart, and soul, is a gift to horse enthusiasts, and more importantly the "HORSE"!  Thank you.

"Making a difference in the world through horses."
There is something different about the west; the air is rarer, the handshakes firmer, the culture deeper than her canyons. The imagery is as solid as the Rockies, as enduring as the vast windblown deserts.
Sue Clark captures it, in all of its human mystery and scenic majesty.
As a historical re-enactor at the Pioneer Village Living History Museum, I work with dedicated volunteers, striving to put flesh on the bones of history; bridging the decades to bring the 19th century to museum visitors, at the dawn of the 21st. Our volunteers perform throughout Arizona, Tombstone and Prescott, in Nevada, California and at events nationwide.

Because of my mode of dress, I am often given to portray one of the Earp brothers. This led my friend Al Freehauf and I to meet Sue on a recent trip to Tombstone, where we were introduced to her sunny personality and unique, artistic talents.  

Beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder, and when the beholder is Sue Clark, one may view through her lens, the soul of the west, where is bred a passion for individual strength and a loyalty, to the timelessness of the land.

Director Roger Wyatt:  
Inviting Sue Clark to document a recent on-location production was a very good call. As an independent filmmaker, I've come to realize that choosing collaborators carefully is one of the most important decisions a producer will ever make in a feature film production. While having a good eye is a given for a documentary photographer, Sue is  at a whole other level with her strong aesthetic sense. Sue Clark produces fine art reliably, repeatedly, and in real-time. Further, she does this not in the studio, but on location, with all the distractions, hurdles, and barriers that real life can present.
Sue is the consumate professional. She shows up on time, focused and ready to go. Her equipment works. She gets it right the first time. There are no re-shoots. That's important, when over forty people are on a set, and it has taken two weeks to pull together all the resources - people, location, and equipment. It also helps that Sue Clark is easy to get along with. When the pressure's on, there's no time for prima donnas. People like Sue gets the job done.
I call Sue my ninja imagemaker - I hardly knew she was there, unobtrusive, yet Sue looked into the heart of the matter at hand. I really appreciated that there was no flash going off to disrupt the flow of my filming, yet Sue's images are well lit, and very usable. I was floored after my twelve hour day when I crawled over to the computer, to check my e-mail one last time. Amazingly there was a couple of emails from Sue stuffed with images from the day's production. Astonishing.
The morning after, fortified with coffee and a good night's sleep, I looked more carefully at her images. They were terrific. The details, the shoes, the signs, all of them. The deft use of B&W added glamour and class to the shoes and other images. Then there were the portraits. The color images were terrific. Sue made me realize that even my extras were movie stars. Sue Clark made everyone look their best or examined an interesting aspect of them. The light, the composition, the form - they were beautiful. I felt Sue's passion, and saw her unique perspective in every frame. Bravo.
I would work again with Sue Clark in a heartbeat.
Producer Roger Wyatt, has been making films and videos for 43 years.

"To say her work 'POPS' is putting it lightly."  Sue Clark's vibrant photography pulled me in, instantly.  Growing up in the Southwest, and working with art in Santa Fe all of my life, I have been exposed to endless southwest imagery, from paintings to photography. Sue Clark's work is captivating.  The compelling colors in 'Ghost Ranch', the mood in the equine photo "Close To You", and the spirit of her subjects in the portraits she has captured with her camera, leave me breathless…numb.  There isn't a collection of Sue's photographs, that I don't find alluring in any way.
