Soon after moving to California from Michigan, James began taking photographs of the American West. Most photgraphs were taken while backpacking in the high Sierra, running rivers in the Southwest and Pacific Northwest, and on extensive roadtrips. In 1973, Jimmy began James Henry River Journeys and started intensively documenting the California, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaskan Rivers that were the focus of his company’s river trips. Later exploratories in Mexico and treks in Japan and Nepal expanded his cultural awareness and creative visions.

With the desire to share his passion for wilderness and photography, Jimmy began teaching photo seminars for UCSC Extension in 1980 and shortly thereafter began teaching for Pt. Reyes Field Seminars, and UCB Extension. Workshop destinations have included Maine, Zion and Arches National Park, Joshua Tree, Anza-Borrego, Pt. Reyes National Seashore, Wilder Ranch and Big Basin State Parks. Participants on Alaskan River Trips are also able to receive informal instruction while in the field.

Assignment photography has taken Jimmy to the Arctic for the National Geographic Society and his stock photography has been published in books, magazines, and newspapers for the purpose of protecting threatened environments.

Please visit the photo gallery and enjoy taking a visual journey down some of the rivers I have traveled and to other remarkable destinations around the globe. On another page you may find a current listing of photo workshops that I teach. These are quite useful for anyone interested in refining their landscape, close-up and travel photographic skills.

I hope that by viewing these images you will be inspired to spend more time outside, to observe the magic of light falling on the landscape, and perhaps attempt to capture it with camera in hand. Please consider joining me and my other compatriots on one of JHRJ's wilderness river journeys or on one of my photography workshops.

Thanks for stopping by. I welcome your feedback.
