John Zumpano is a freelance event, portrait and fine art photographer based in Livingston MT. On the Yellowstone River in the heart of the Rocky Mts. one hour north of Yellowstone National Park, Livingston is picturesque community embracing all things Western: fishing, hunting, hiking, rodeo, cowboys, horses, and floating. A cultural mecca in southwest Montana, Livingston boasts over a dozen art galleries and two museums. Powwwows, natural light portraits, music and landscapes are the heart of my work.
Before becoming a full time photographer, I spent almost 30 years in motion picture and T.V. production ending up as Chief Lighting Technician and proud member of I.A.T.S.E. Local 728 Studio Lighting Technicians, Hollywood Ca. Damn near graduated from the University of Southern California with a B.A. in Cinema Production.
A Montana native and California expat, John Zumpano has spent most of his life traveling the country pursuing light, shadow and form. Whether in motion or stillness, images are the core of my world. My photos speak of people, landscape and what the West is made of.
