    "Clicked" is not the right verb. Photos are taken.

    "I want my photo taken" is fine.

    "I'm going to have some passport photos taken by the photographer."

    Re: photographs taken or clicked

    If you want your photograph taken at a party or a tourist spot, say to somebody 'Will you take my photograph, please?'

    Hint: In most major cities, it's wise to ask somebody whom you think you can outrun, or that might be the last you see of your camera.

    ... or if you take him with you, your camera will be safe.
