BIO

image213


I was initially trained in photography by my father, George E. Huftalen, a commercial photographer. I've been using cameras continuously since the age of thirteen and have   a wide range of experience in catalog and industrial photography through my employment as a visual arts manager in the children’s wear industry. My images encompass a wide range of subject material ranging from still lifes to landscapes in camera formats from 35mm to 8 x 10 and digital.  I currently have my own business, JLH Photographics, through which I sell and license my photographs.
