Huntiington Witherill was born in Syracuse, NY, in 1949. Thereafter in 1953, he and his family moved to Santa Monica, California. He was a music major in college. It was in college where he became interested in the study of two-dimensional visual design. This shift, in 1970, from music as an accomplished pianist to a visual artist, eventually led to a career in fine art photography. His photographic career represents an unusually diverse approach to photography including classical landscapes, studies of pop-art, botanical subjects, urban architecture, abstracts, and most recently digital imaging.

Witherill's photographs have been exhibited in more than eighty-five individual and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the world. Additionally, his photographs are maintained in numerous public art collections worldwide, including the National Museum of Modern Art- Kyoto, Japan, Fundacióe Van Gogh d'Arles- Arles, France, the Akron Art Museum, Akron, Ohio, the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New York; and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara, CA. Lenswork published two monographs by Witherill; Orchestrating Icons and Botanical Dances, both of which received national and international awards. In 1999, Witherill was a recipient of the "Artist of the Year" award presented by the Center for Photographic Art. Since 1975, Witherill has continued to teach photography for a variety of institutions and workshops including the University of California, The Friends of Photography, and the Ansel Adams Gallery, among others.
