About Me

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
Elliott Erwitt

John McClelland

Hi, my name is John. I am a husband, father, grandfather, and photographer. My passion for photography and love for great images started in a high school darkroom.

I have been married to my best friend, Debbie, since 1998. We have three adult sons, Jason, Tracy and Aron, who have become great people in their own right. While they are all so very different, they are also a lot alike, and have provided us so many wonderful memories.

I spent many years in public service including the US Army and Law Enforcement. Debbie and I moved to Oregon in 2012 because of its natural beauty.  I enjoy getting out and capturing images everywhere I can.

I enjoy all forms of photography, but have focused on portraits, commercial (mostly real estate), and  landscape photography. Please contact me to get more information.
