Welcome to Think On Photography
My name is Jim McClelland and I have been taking pictures ever since my parents let me buy a Kodak Brownie Bullet camera for $1.00 at a garage sale in the late 60's.
I had a lot to learn back then: film sizes, ISO, film speeds? Fortunately my father was pretty savvy about cameras and he taught me the basics. I then wasted roll after roll taking pictures of animals, cars, insects, buildings, plants and everything else that caught my eye. I can't remember how many chores I had to do to make enough money to keep buying and developing film when I was young. I’ve come a long way since that Brownie Bullet camera in the past 45 years or so. I was a very visual person back then and I still am today. I have always felt that I see things a little different than most.
Think On Photography is the culmination of years of hard work, continuing education, and a relentless dedication to the craft. While equipment advances have been tremendous over the decades, I believe that a photographer is only as good as their artistic vision, they must have the eye of a photographer. I enjoy the art of capturing any moment I find beautiful and allowing it to be saved for a lifetime. I also enjoy artistic post production work, which I employ on a select number of my photographs. I have had numerous photographs used in print and social media, locally, nationally and internationally. I have photographed sports from the high school level to the Division-1 Collegiate and Olympic development levels. I have also captured the moments of collegiate senior photos, family gatherings and weddings.
I truly am a freelance photographer and I do not limit my abilities to one form of photography.
I am available for hire and assignment and am willing to travel. I will cover your special event, news story, team or individual sporting events, and more. If you are looking for a particular fine art piece I would be more than willing to work with you on that project as well.
