John Michael Krachinski, 62, of North Sewickley Township, passed away Sunday, July 5, 2020 at Heritage Valley, Beaver where he had been a patient for the past two weeks.
Born February 23, 1958, in Rochester, PA, he was the son of the late John and Theresa Krachinski. John graduated from St. Fidelis High School Seminary, Butler, PA, attended Dayton University, Ohio, and received a degree in Photography from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
As a professional photographer, John demonstrated his creative eye in his beautiful photographs in both landscape and portraiture formats. His photographic style can be compared to that of Ansel Adams, and Edward Weston, who served as mentors throughout his career. His studios included: NewBright Images, Chapel Studio, and JohnMichael Photography. John was involved and a member of various photography groups in Beaver and Allegheny Counties. He is known for his wit and gentle spirit….and ready with a camera in hand to capture that special moment in time. John’s imagery would always bring a smile to his audience and appreciation for his craft. He will be remembered for his unique style and strong photographic themes and his love for the “photograph.”
John leaves behind numerous cousins and friends and will be dearly missed by his special cousins, Terri, Tom, Vicky, Jack and also his dear friend, Debbie. In addition, his loss will be felt by his two dogs and a cat, Weston, Jasper, and Vivian.
