John Ransom Photography | About


Thank you for checking out John Ransom Photography.  My approach to photography is simple: capture not only the image of what is in front of me, but to convey the entire story behind that image and evoke the sights, sounds and emotion present into a single frame. Whether it is an engagement photo, senior picture, little league baseball team photo, reunions, or snapshots in the backyard: photography captures a moment in time that can never be repeated.

I chose photography because it is real. It captures an actual representation of something that really happened at some point in time. My work is straight forward, unscripted or set-up in advance, and is derived from observations as they present themselves. While this 'unplanned' approach may seem random – it is really part of a larger theme: a photograph is only a representation of very brief moment in time and it is those moments that make a difference. Some photographs can inspire, some shock, some are historic, and some are simply meant to be enjoyed. One thing all photographs do: they cause us to pause, and remind us that those very small moments in time can be the most important.

Photography is a passion. I love to keep up with the latest trends & new equipment and I continue to learn by studying with nationally known photographers. In the end, my goal is to always provide photographs and an experience that can be cherished for years to come.

I live in Clarkston with my wife, Molly & have 2 children: a daughter, 21 (well, almost) and son, 23. 

Thank you,
