Jimmy Hern, an artistic and misunderstood young man of 16 was thrown into the darkroom and thrust behind the lens, and a life was changed forever. After discovering an insatiable appetite for photography, Jimmy sought out an education. Talents were fostered, skills were honed, so he began his simple quest of becoming the best.

Degree in hand, Jimmy spent about 8 years assisting for some of the best advertising photographers in the country, learning all the while. He has been all over the country, in about every location imaginable, from coal mines, to test tracks, and has photographed from the air, land and sea.

He relishes and welcomes any photographic challenge, whether it be studio or location. “The camera is my paint brush and canvas, the light is my paint,
and the world…my subject”
