John Guiseppi


    John was born and grew up in Ohio, he moved to Florida in the late 1970s after several
    years in the United States Marine Corps.  In 2006, John received his Bachelor of Science
    Degree in Information Technology from the University of South Florida. Recently retired
    after working 27 years in the power generation municipal utility field. John is now able to
    spend time working on art and photography. John is married to Shelley, has two adult
    children, Melissa and JP. John and Shelley also have their two fur kids, Pete and Maggie
    Mae. Pete a Yellow and Maggie a Chocolate Labrador Retriever, affectionately referred to
    as fursons.

    John is a self-taught colored pencil artist and photographer. John’s specialty is
    photographing wildlife and nature. He strives to capture activity, poses, situations and
    scenes that are considered outside the norm and familiar. Those unusual positions during
    grooming, mating ritual, breeding display, or just being silly. John waits patiently for just
    the right moment, one that is different but unique to his subject. He strives to capture the
    moment that others miss, don’t see or notice. He then uses his photography as reference to
    create, produce and share an art piece that allows others a glimpse into that secret world
    of nature and wildlife that he sees.
