Best Photos of 2016

Best Photos of 2016

We’re well into 2017 so I guess it’s about time I show off my most successful mountain bike, ski, travel and adventure photos from last year. I don’t know if these are actually my best photos of 2016. How do you determine “best,” anyway? To help me narrow my picks down, I started with my […]

If you’re shopping for a new DSLR or other interchangeable lens camera, you’ve come to the right place. This mirrorless camera buying guide gets regular updates and it’s now current for the winter of 2016/17.

Point-and-Shoot Camera Buying Guide

Point-and-Shoot Camera Buying Guide

I’ve been updating this point-and-shoot camera buying guide at regular intervals for a couple of years now. This update, for the 2016 Holiday Season, is the toughest one yet because there are so many really good point-and-shoot cameras available right now. But I’ve done my job and narrowed the list down to ten cameras. These […]

I’m very pleased to share the most recent issue of Dirt Rag magazine (number 187 – it’s a killer issue), with a Photo-John cover shot and Photo-John images illustrating a feature story. Dirt Rag asked if I could shoot Salt Lake City professional downhill mountain biker Amanda Batty for their “Personality Issue” and of course […]

Miggo Agua Storm Proof Camera Bag

A few weeks ago I got a message on LinkedIn from Israeli camera strap maker, Miggo. They wanted to know if I was interested in trying out their current Kickstarter project, the “Storm Proof” Agua camera bag. As a confirmed camera bag whore, of course I said yes. Today is the last day for the […]

Classic Santa Cruz Mountain Biking

Classic Santa Cruz Mountain Biking

I took this photo a few weeks ago when I was in Northern California to photograph the annual Sea Otter Classic bike festival, in Monterey. Although I spent most of my life in the Bay Area, I hadn’t actually ridden there for a few years because I live in Utah now. But since Santa Cruz […]

Fine Art Mountain Bike Photography

Fine Art Mountain Bike Photography

My photographic journey began about 30 years ago with a Pentax 35mm SLR, a manual focus 50mm lens, black-and-white film and my college darkroom. I started doing fine art mountain bike photography about 10 years later. Things sure have changed since I started taking pictures but I’m still obsessed with photographing everything I experience and […]

2015 Alta Closing Day Photos

2015 Alta Closing Day Photos

The lifts have stopped and the 2014/15 ski season is officially over in Utah – for the resorts, anyway. There’s still snow up there and it looks like more is on the way. So for those skiers who are willing to earn their turns, there are probably a few good days left. I was at […]

Best Photos of 2014

Best Photos of 2014

As a photographer, it’s always interesting to take a look back and see what photos worked and what didn’t. One way to measure photographic success is by making an “Interestingness” Flickr Album. According to Flickr’s super-secret “Interestingness” algorithm, the photos in my Most Interesting Photos Of 2014 gallery are, well – interesting. I don’t know […]
