Alex McClure, an avid photographer for over 30 years, joined the Olympus Trailblazer program in 2013.

Alex works to achieve his stated goal “to make beautiful photographs that inspire and motivate people” through his nature, commercial and fine art photography.

Alex began his photography career taking backpacking trips through various landscapes including the High Sierra and Columbian Ice fields. More recently, he’s focused his lens on Arizona deserts, the Eastern Sierra and the Grand Canyon.

In his spare time, Alex organizes the Photographer’s Adventure Club, a Southwest-based photography group that hosts educational workshops, photo walks and backpacking photo trips.

Alex’s favorite camera is the Olympus OM-D E-M1. He appreciates its professional-level performance and usability, combined with ease-of-use for the novice shooter.

The Olympus Trailblazer program celebrates the work of emerging photographers who use Olympus cameras and lenses.
