  • Welcome to the photography of John B. Mueller

    I'm a photographer based in Ventura County specializing in weddings and portraiture. I also have expertise with landscapes, wildlife, travel and product photography. In my decade of shooting professionally I have done hundreds of weddings worldwide, photographed celebrities on red carpets in Hollywood, castles in Germany, Harajuku girls in Japan and the Loch Ness Monster (twice). I've done stand-up comedy, got my 2nd black belt in Tang Soo Do and am a for-time speling bee champ. I also happen to be pretty good with a camera
