Brian McLernon is a commercial freelance photographer based in Portland, Oregon. Originally from New Jersey and educated in Arizona, Philadelphia, and New York City, he moved to Portland in 1996. He shoots primarily for editorial, commercial, corporate, and lifestyle — such as locations, portraits, products, travel, public relations, weddings, high school seniors, artworks, sports, special events, and more — capturing moments and telling visual stories.
A partial list of Brian's clients include: Albertson's, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Caldwell College, CBS Records, Coates & Clark, Danskin, EC Company, Ellington Leather, Exxon, Johnson & Johnson, The Lawrenceville School, Lionel Trains LLC, Manos del Uruguay, Manufacturers Hanover, McCarter Theatre, McNeil Pharmaceuticals, Mid-Atlantic Country magazine, Midnight Sun Productions, New Jersey Outdoors magazine, Nike, Paragon Tile & Stone, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Platt Electric, Premiere Homes magazine, Sierra Club, Sprint, Tower Records, Traeger Grills, the United States Tennis Association, and Weldotron.
Brian has often been a guest speaker for several artistic associations, communication groups, and business organizations and always enjoys speaking to student groups. When he's not photographing in the studio or on location, Brian spends time with his wife and daughter, family and friends, camping, traveling, whitewater rafting, cross-country and downhill skiing, and, of course, photographing nature and all kinds of motorsports.
This is his first book for Wiley.
