Born in Syracuse, NY, in 1949, Huntington Witherill moved with his
family to California, in 1953, where he began training in classical
music. With intentions of eventually becoming a concert pianist,
Witherill entered college as a music major in 1968, but soon became
interested in the study of two-dimensional design. This shift in
creative focus eventually led to a career in fine art photography
beginning in 1970.

David Bayles and Ted Orland
Art derives a considerable part of its beneficial exercise from flying in the face of presumptions.
And finally… to shamelessly quote myself…
A camera can not transform you into an artist (or a photographer). But it can provide you with a pretty good excuse to over indulge in a lot of self-discovery and personal revelation.
