5 x 5 Submission 85 - Jim Cleary

Jim Cleary


Jim Cleary is an amateur photographer whose interest was sparked by an unexpected Nikon D40 camera from Santa in 2008. After graduating from college at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC in 2008, Jim moved to Seattle to pursue a career in marketing and explore the west coast. He was born in Detroit, MI but grew up in Charlotte, NC. Jim enjoys exploring new places - especially by road trip - photographing his travels along the way.

Jim began shooting photographs at college in the mountains of North Carolina. He photographed his travels throughout the South, followed by trips to the Midwest, Hawaii, British Columbia, Scandinavia and Tokyo. Jim enjoys living in the Pacific Northwest because of its seemingly endless supply of photo opportunities.

Jim enjoys the minimalist aspects of landscape as well as the simple thrill of capturing a spectacular moment in time. He is excited to continue learning about photography techniques while exploring additional parts of the world and taking photos along the way.

  1. These are both stunning and classic. They seem to capture what it means to live in Seattle and the PNW.
