LOVE THAT YOU'RE HERE!
My name is Amleya Clarke and welcome to my little spot on the web.
I'm a Barbados-based content creator & collaborator with a love for creating engaging & impactful imagery.
WHAT WE DO
PORTRAIT, CORPORATE & BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY
Over the last 9 years, we've had the pleasure of providing photography services to many large and small brands, families & individuals.
All our clients, portrait subjects & collaborators are all rock stars in our eyes but some special mentions include the Caribbean Development Bank, Scotiabank, West Jet Magazine, the Barbados Independent Film Festival (BIFF), Senator Lisa Cummins, Lisa Gale Consulting, TEN Habitat, the Nation Publishing & Honey Jam Barbados.
I believe collaboration is the name of the game. I'm not here to compete, I'm here to create. I love the opportunity to provide support services to the productions of my fellow creatives.
I've had the pleasure to join forces for local and international jobs with Barbados' top production companies & production facilitators: 13 Degrees North Productions Inc (worked as photographer, retoucher, PA on various projects) and Parachute Film Studios (worked as 2nd AD).
I also love joining forces with smaller photography & videography teams. Special shout out to Kevin Bowen Productions (worked as camera operator & photographer) & Magical Moments/Steve Cumberbatch (as lighting assistant & photography second shooter).
I'm a featured service provider for both recently launched Happy B Box and White Linen.
And I've been blessed to be featured by the Barbados Photographic Society (BPS) for their Behind the Lens series and by the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme’s “Living the Dream” TV programme. (Also 2 new features coming out soon so watch this space!)

I see myself as more than a photographer, I am a storyteller, a day-dreamer, a creative collaborator, a plan-maker and an artist. I am captivated by light and shadows, colour, texture and most of all emotion. I love a well executed production and I relish showcasing the personality and style of individuals and brands.
From a young age I was always interested in creative pursuits. I went on to study dance & fine art and was enthralled at the way visuals could so potently influence emotion, impact lives and be a universal communication tool. In 2009, I got my first DSLR camera and started learning the art and business of photography. I've taken a number of short courses, interned, assisted photographers, teamed up with other creatives and eventually started producing my own projects & booking jobs. Along the way I developed passions and skills in image retouching, production management, film-making, branding and communications.
One of the things I love about being a creative producer is the opportunity it provides to not just conceptualize and bring an idea to life, but also utilize skills in business, communication and psychology to maximize the impact and relevance of each piece in the world. I have had the pleasure of meeting & getting to know so many people, some of whom have become great friends and creative partners.
