Hershel Self


Since starting his photographic career in 1990, Hershel has progressed far beyond those early days of photographing his feet or plastic bags blowing in the wind. Moving out of one big darkroom and into Lightroom, he has kept up with the latest photographic technology - all while refining his use of light and lense to create compelling imagery.
If you ever see Hershel around town without his camera, by all means, please stop and help him find it.
