Clay Blackmore, one of the most passionate professional photographers working today, is a true
innovator in the world of portraiture and wedding photography. One of only a few Canon Explorers of
Light, Blackmore’s style blends the beauty and timelessness of classical portraiture with the spontaneity
and appeal of photojournalism. His credentials were developed during his 25-year association with the
legendary Monte Zucker as assistant, business partner, and co-educator. A celebrity and society favorite,
Clay’s clients have included such luminaries as Larry King, Forrest Whitaker, Jenna Elfman, and Maria
Sharapova. Renowned for his ability to photograph groups and cover events, Clay is consistently hired by corporate entities as diverse as the PGA and USGA and is a popular request for political inaugural balls.

In Clay’s groundbreaking work on Extraordinary Women: Fantasies Revealed Clay photographically
chronicles the dreams of 58 elite women, capturing intimate and energetic portraits of Madeline
Albright, Dena Merrill, Joan Rivers, Cokie Roberts, and Dominique Dawes among others. Blackmore is an
active and contributing member of the elite Cameracraftsmen of America.

I sure wish that it streamed on line or that you sell the DVD. I would love to participate but I can't go in person.
