Best Adventure Photos of 2017

Best Adventure Photos of 2017

For the past few years I’ve made a “best photos of” article at the beginning of the New Year. There are as many ways to determine your “best” photos as there are photographers and I’ve opted to keep it simple and somewhat automated. Since photography is a form of communication, I’ve left the choosing up […]

2017 Fears Tears & Beers Mountain Bike Race Photos

My 2017 Fears Tears & Beers mountain bike race photos are posted. Thanks to Kelly and Kent for continuing to hold the mountain bike enduro race (this was the 12th year). Thanks also to all the volunteers, sponsors and racers. I love shooting the Fears Tears & Beers mountain bike race. It’s a great landscape, […]

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 […]

Published: Amanda Batty Dirt Rag Cover

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 […]

Graham Hunt at the Post Office Dirt Jumps – 2007

Graham Hunt at the Post Office Dirt Jumps – 2007

I’m not going to try to say anything about who Graham Hunt was or what he did. I’ll leave that for Interweb know-it-alls and the people who really knew and loved him. However, for those of you who don’t know, Graham recently died in a much-publicized wingsuit accident with Dean Potter, in Yosemite National Park. […]

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 […]

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 […]

2014 Red Bull Rampage Photos

2014 Red Bull Rampage Photos

Red Bull Rampage is the most prestigious and challenging freeride mountain bike competition on the planet. It takes place in the fall, near the tiny Southern Utah town of Virgin, just a few miles from Zion National Park. It’s so “extreme” it borders on the absurd. The red desert backdrop looks like something from a […]

Reflecting On Little Creek Mesa

Reflecting On Little Creek Mesa

Reflecting on Little Creek Mesa: I was blessed to be able to experience this sunset and capture this photo a couple of weeks ago out on Little Creek Mesa, near St. George, Utah. I intended to sit on it, shop it out to magazines and see if I could make some money. But I suck […]
