Where it began — and where it was finished.

This is an important one for me. My book was originally inspired by early 20th Century Sierra Nevada climbers. The first photos of the project began here in 1998 and I finished the writing in the Owens Valley nearly two decades later. This area has also been my home away from home for a majority of my life.

I’ll be at the American Alpine Club’s Fall Highball in Bishop, CA, in conjunction with the Bishop Climbers Coalition. My talk/slideshow will be on Sunday, November 3 at the Inyo Council for the Arts.

I’ll be selling and signing books.

Also, the day before my talk, I’ll be teaching a photography workshop on November 2:

PORTRAITURE FOR UNDER A POUND with Jim Herrington, presented by Adidas


Jim Herrington’s one-day portraiture workshop will emphasize an approach that relies on natural light and minimal gear. Herrington will demonstrate how he travels the world with a very small kit, often working in less-than-ideal locations and situations. Herrington believes less in overpowering the scenario with soft boxes and gear and more in having a sensitivity to your surroundings and finding creative, often simple solutions to taking good photographs. Here is a chance to learn firsthand how Herrington shot the photographs for his book The Climbers as well as his celebrity and musician portraits over a decades-long career.

Thanks once again to the fine people at Adidas for your interest and support.
