Javet Kimble began his study of photography in 1971 when in a basic photo class he learned the "Zone System":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zone_System, developed by Ansel Adams, which continues to be an integral part of his photographic process today.

School was followed by 10 years as a free-lance photographer and co-owner of a school portrait business. Kimble used film cameras exclusively for the first 29 years of his career. He processed his own film and prints and although his work is now 90% digital capture he still takes pride in a hands-on approach to all aspects of his photography.

In 2008 Javet was one of five photographers whose work was featured in the book "JAZZOGRAPHY: A Portrait of the Chicago Jazz Fest at 30":http://www.jazzinchicago.org/jazzography-portrait-chicago-jazz-festival-30.
