about elizabeth

Hello there!  I am an upbeat photographer and absolutely love what I do – I make art by documenting people.  My artistic style is a mix of photo-journalistic, creative and traditional – I enjoy capturing candid moments along with slowing down to focus on meaningful details and beautiful portraits. 

I hold an MFA in photography which gave me a formal education in both the technique and history of photography. At school I was introduced to some of my photo heroes –  Sally Mann, Francesca Woodman, Gregory Crewdson, Nan Goldin, Alec Soth, Tina Barney to name a few….  

Besides photographing a lot, I like to go for runs around Fresh Pond, watch indie movies, drink wine with friends (preferably outside), keep up to date on the real estate market in Cambridge, play tennis if my back allows it, and spend time with my family.  I’m also addicted to Instagram…  I guess I just can’t stay away from the lens, even when it’s on my i-Phone!

Please browse through my blog and galleries to get a sense of my style.  If you like what you see, I encourage you to contact me to set up a consultation.  You can email me at e@elizabethclarkphoto.com or fill out my contact form.  I work out of my studio boutique located in the heart of Huron Village, Cambridge, right between Grey Mist Studio and Fresh Pond Market.

Elizabeth, a native of the Boston area, was introduced to photography in high school at Noble and Greenough and immediately caught the “bug” and went on to graduate with a the Bramhall-Bridge Purchase Award in Art.  She graduated Cum Laude with a BA Thesis in Fine Art at Amherst College and completed her MFA at the School of Visual Arts in 2010.  While in graduate school, she began her thesis project, Libert & Company, which documents her own family.  Photographs from Libert & Company have been exhibited in group shows nationally, including at the Michael Foley Gallery in New York City and Boston University’s Photographic Resource Center.  Her first solo show was in 2012 at NESOP (New England School of Photography) in Boston.

Elizabeth was named one of Boston’s Best Family Photographers by CBS Boston, a Photo District News Annual Student Winner, and a Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Emerging Photographer.  She was recently a guest on NECN’s Morning Show, and her work has been featured in blogs such as the New Yorker Photobooth, Little Bellows, Style Me Pretty, Light Inspired, Hey Hot Shot!, Lenscratch, and LPV Magazine, and will be published in Peter Hay Halbert’s upcoming book, Identities Now – Contemporary Portraiture in Photography.  Elizabeth is a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP), Boston Mamas, the Magic Hour Foundation and the Tiny Sparrow Foundation.
