For September we have a guest speaker.
Living, Working and Photographing
In Yellowstone National Park
During the summers of 2016 and 2017, John Levandoski had the opportunity to live and work in
Yellowstone National Park in the state of Wyoming. The experience was extraordinary and life
changing. Inspiration was everywhere. Adventure was a daily way of life. And photographs
appeared around every corner.
Capturing thousands of images was a dream come true, as it would be for anyone who loves
outdoor photography. John has gathered some of his best images and stories in a presentation he hopes will inspire you and make you ponder an alternative retirement option.
John started his photography career forty years ago in a basic class at the community college.
From 1983 to 1997 he owned and operated Camera Pro Inc., a retail camera store and photo
studio. In 1997, he closed the retail store to concentrate on his photography. In 2003, he created
John Levandoski Fine Art Photography and sold his work at local venues throughout northeast
Pennsylvania and also at art festivals in PA, NY and NJ.
John’s commercial career has spanned over 30 years specializing in weddings, events and
portraits and also including product, editorial, bands and models. His work has been published
by the Wall Street Journal, he has been flown to Ireland to photograph a wedding and has
photographed a sitting Vice President of The United States of America while working with the
Matt Cartwright For Congress Campaign in 2012.
In his semi-retirement John photographs his travels and posts them on his website blog and gives presentations to clubs as he travels.
