Wayne Howard began his photographic journey as a kid with a folding Kodak camera. Since that time, he has worked in chemical darkrooms, attended photography public, private, and commercial classes and seminars to hone his skills. Graduating from the University of Florida as an electrical engineer, digital technology easily found expression in his art. Howard’s work has been published in newspapers, national and area magazines, the Internet, and featured at galleries.

My goal is to capture the essence of the image, that elusive spirit or something that goes beyond a “postcard” moment. I want the viewer to be able to feel the damp misty morning, hear the raucous cry of gull, the clang of the halyards and imagine the smell the sea. In other words, I want you to experience what I felt the moment the picture was taken.”

Editor’s Note: Howard has been and is currently an instructor at the Florida State College of Jacksonville in the continuing education program where he teaches classes in beginning digital photography, and Photoshop image editing.
