Clark Marten M.Photog.Cr., CPP
Clark and wife, Rachel, started Clark Marten Photography in the basement of their
home in the mid 80’s and in 1990, built a studio onto their house. Creating a
business from nothing in rural Montana (which has a population of only six people
per square mile), forced them to overcome mental and physical boundaries to do
the absolute best with what they had.
Over the past 30 years, the Martens have created a winning photography style and
digital artistic expression that attracts high-end clients; and a sales system that has
clients purchasing wall portraits and other high-end products…all of which has
given the Marten’s an unprecedented top-dollar sales average.
In 2008, their son, Rudi, returned to the studio and breathed new energy into the
business. Dreaming beyond Clark & Rachel’s retirement, Rudi was an inspiring
force behind the Marten’s 10,000 square foot studio that opened in June 2013.
Combined with their established reputation, Rudi continues to grow the Marten’s
studio with energy and new ideas as he picks up the camera himself.
Clark has served on the National Board of Directors for Professional
Photographers of America since 2015.
