John Howells

Photography and Art

I am a photographer of details, secrets and beautiful places. In looking for compositions I relax and let the world reveal itself to me. Anywhere you go, everywhere you look, there are amazing moments just waiting be discovered. When you visit a place, the first instinct is to look at the whole. Sit down and stop awhile, then you will start to see the secrets revealed. A robin singing, a flower touched with raindrops or a pathway leading to who knows where.Ephemeral art inspires me and I love capturing fleeting moments with the camera.

My experience in photography has come from years of practice, I am still learning, I will never stop. In my art, as in my photography, I love to depict the spirit of the subject, particularly animals. Working with pastels and acrylic allows me to capture intense photo realistic details and a real sense of depth in fur and feathers.

Commissions are a real pleasure to take on – the chance to interpret a photo, connect with the soul of the subject and create a memorable piece of art for someone to treasure.

I love to share my knowledge and enjoy teaching small groups or one to one workshops in both art and photography.
