John Gibson joined Bike's masthead in the September 1996 issue as a Contributing Photographer. This happened towards the end of his nine year career as a newspaper and wire service photographer in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He became as one of Bike's Senior Photographers in 2000. Today Gibson shoots all facets of mountain bike riding for a host of editorial and commercial clients. When he's not shooting photos of people riding their bikes he still finds time to ride his bike on the trails that start out his door in Bow Valley, Alberta.
