Grady Clark grew up in Jacksonville, Florida through his high school years. He began his college life, first at Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho. There he took a photography class his first semester of his freshman year and he was hooked. Graduating from Ricks with an AA degree he transferred to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He graduated from BYU with a Bachelors degree in Communications with an emphasis in Photography.
Grady's first full time professional experience was opening a studio in Provo. There he mostly did portrait work with an occasional commercial project mixed in. Because his interest lay more in the commercial arena it was necessary to move to a larger population area. So then it was back to his hometown of Jacksonville.
Some of his first clients were the Jacksonville Bulls of the USFL and Jacksonville Today magazine. Almost 20 years later the list of clients has grown as well as his experience.
In the years since, Grady has moved into Design and Digital retouching as well. A number of his currant clients, such as Ocean Wave Sunglasses and No Limits Clothing, use both his photographic and design skills for their catalogs and ads.
