John Albin has been involved with photography since he was a teenager. He helped his father develop and print black and white photos that his dad took at Manzanita Speedway which were then sold at the track as souvenirs. Once Albin was old enough to get into the pits at the race track, he too took photos of the action on the track. He went on to be a member of the photo lab during high school taking photos at school events and group photos for the year book and school paper.
His love of photography has carried on through the years and he now enjoys taking landscapes, nature and life photography using his Nikon digital camera. Albin also enjoys drawing and painting with watercolor and acrylic.
