Getting the shot is important. The art of photography is a left/right brain exercise. A strong technical intellect and understanding of your equipment allows fluid creativity. Howard has been studying photography since he was a boy. Passed down from his Grandfather through his father, Howard had his own darkroom as a lad. Starting with black and white contact prints he learned the joy of watching an image emerge in a developing tray. These days most work is digital and the magic happens in Photoshop. Regardless of the technology, good pictures start six inches BEHIND the viewfinder.


This shot of the Barn at Hastings House Country Estate, taken hand held one frosty November morning, has been reproduced around the world.
