Jim Westphalen

Jim Westphalen has been a professional photographer for over 30 years. When he’s not shooting commercial assignments, he spends much of his time roaming back roads, combing deserted shorelines or rooting about old farms in search of images that will compel the viewer to pause, reflect and experience.

"I want my photographs to disengage the audience from the here and now; to feel the cold of the blowing snow, to breathe in the serenity of the sea, to lament what once was or to simply be awed by the beauty of God’s creation."

Born and raised in Long Island, New York, Jim moved to Vermont in 1996, where he still lives with his wife Kendra and three children.
