Robert Carlos Clarke (b. 24 June, 1950, County Cork d. 25 March, 2006, Barnes, London) was an Irish photographer, known for his highly stylised erotic imagery.

In 1970 Clarke studied graphics at the West Sussex College of Art. Later he received an MA from the Royal College of Art. Clarke photographed celebrities such as Keith Richards, Dita Von Teese, Caprice, Marco Pierre White and Rachel Weisz. He was also for years, very good friends with the late Lord Patrick Lichfield.

Carlos Clarke's death resulted from his being hit by a train in Barnes, south-west London. Clarke was married twice, and had one daughter, Scarlett with his second wife, Lindsey.

In his anthology Too Many Nights, at least one photo [1] can be found which is a reworking of Allen Jones's famous fetish sculpture.
