Howard L. Smith

Born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut I've always had keen interest in music, film and still photography. While singing and playing music throughout junior high school and high school I started taking pictures with a Kodak Instamatic and shooting movies with a Kodak Super 8 movie camera given to me by my mother for Christmas. However at the time music was my passion and it wasn't until I finished school at the Hartford Conservatory of Music and migrated to San Francisco, California in 1974 did I get an opportunity to really experiment with 35mm still photography. I would spend hours in Golden Gate Park with my camera making pictures of anything that caught my interest.

I've since relocated to southern California and no longer play and write music instead photography has become my passion of which I feel extremely blessed to be able to do. While shooting wildlife and scenery are what I enjoy most I'm open to photographing just about anything as long is the images that I create touches the inner being of the viewer. As a photographer my goal is to touch the viewer emotionally sparking feelings of happiness, sadness, joy, pain, peace or, love much in the same way as music.

I hope that the passion that I have for photography translates to the images that I create as it is my desire that the viewer feels this passion as well.
