About

Thanks for stopping by my website:

My name is John, I’m 58 years young and a Michigan native who enjoys photography with my Nikon D3300 and occasionally with my iPhone 10X and Sony RX100. Growing up in Michigan was great, I had a wonderful childhood and have fond memories of snowmobiling all around northern lower Michigan and in Michigan’s Upper peninsula. As a teen, my father and I spent many weekends in Michigan’s northern lower peninsula riding dirt bikes in the north wood. So much more but I’ll spare you the speech!

Photography and Blogging:

We also engaged in quarter mile drag boat racing which entailed travel to several states while I was in High School, it was a good time in my life. Somewhere in the mid nineteen eighties I was given some old (at the time) camera equipment which I no longer have. That sucks. There was a color film camera and a black and white camera. This is when I took a larger interest in photography. In the early 2000’s I put together my first website.

That first site:

My first website was all about politics, Michigan politics specifically. Well, that site quickly became rather unpalatable in due time because of the constant flaming and hateful comments that just automatically seem to come with a political website. Nobody needs that shit so I canned that site after what was probably around one year or so and opened another self-hosted WordPress website with a different focus. Though fully capable of using WordPress.org, I choose to stay on the WordPress.com side for now.

No Niche’ Here:

So here I am today once again firing up yet another site on WordPress.com, this time with a mix of photography, opinion and random thoughts on subjects that matter to me. And a little bit of video too? This is a General Interest blog, not a niche’ blog, however I will focus mostly on photography. Thanks for visiting Las Vegas Photoblog, I appreciate your taking time from your day to visit. All header images on this website are my photography.
