Crystal Combs has been a photographer for over 5 years and recently decided to pursue fashion photography full time. Her previous experience has allowed her to shoot many mediums and learn from many diverse experiences. Today, she aspires to take her passion for fashion and turn it into a full time job, exploring the beauty and artistry of apparel, beauty and art.

“My passion for fashion started at very young age while spending hours along side my mother pinning patterns, and dreaming up designs. Later on I fell in love with the world of high fashion, and began modeling in Dallas, Texas. One day I picked up a camera to practice my posing with another model and became enamored with the artistry. Today I’m the owner of C Clear Photography and Productions. I have worked along side many incredible artists in Texas, and I understand the need for the TFII. My goal as a board member is to bring my creativity and expertise to help others grow, because Texas has some of best undiscovered talent in the world.”
