Road Trip Going nowhere - SOLOMANGO

Craig Howarth Fine Art Photogarpher - USA - UK - FRANCE
Great piece written about my american travel images:


"There’s a melancholy nostalgia about this series of photographs that harks back to more optimistic days; Photographer Craig Howarth’s focus on fading icons and logos reminds us of a sunnier time when the US’ love affair with the motor car was at its height, when the open road beckoned and when Elvis would be the soundtrack to our top down road trip. "


Thanks Solomango... CRAIG

Mountains of Morzine, Fine art black and white prints

Snow Hut Morzine, Fine Art Landscape Photographer Craig Howarth
This Snow Hut in Morzine was taken just after a very heavy snow storm in December 2012. Snow shoes on and a walk in temperatures of -14 was very bracing but when you get to see the sunrise it is always worth it...

Brecon Beacons Pictures

Raw Black and White files ready for editing, will shoot for another couple of days and get back to editing when the bad weather comes!!!
Taking Brecon Beacons Pictures...

So far on my Brecon Beacons National Park project I have been concentrating on the waterfalls. At this time of year the trees are just starting to shed the leaves making for very mystical scenes. We have come across some amazing sights already this season, very inspiring times.

I love being a Fine Art Landscape photographer when I have adventures like I have had so far over the last couple of days, clambering up the side of a 30 foot waterall for an awesome shot, nearly loosing my camera bag down a gorge as I only had a couple of feet to work with and the smile on my face standing behind Sgwd yr Eira was truly amazing!!! Really looking forward to photographing the national park right the way through this Autumn and Winter - Dartmoor National Park next week though...

Alps in Autumn - Morzine - Pointe de Ressachaux

Alps in Autumn, Black and White Landscape Photographer Craig Howarth
Alps in Autumn - The Alps in Autumn are just stunning, the colours the textures the lighting are all truly inspiring for any Black and White Landscape Photographer. This image was taken on a day hike in Morzine where we climbed to the summit of Pointe de Ressachaux that looks back on Morzine, a hard climb but truly worth it.

When you are out this autumn, look not only for the great views but also the different textures this seasons brings, with the leaves falling to the ground and remember the harsh frosts can bring pieces of stunning bark off the trees, providing excellent opportunities for abstract photographs.

Black & White Landscape Photography

Black & White Landscape Photography, Pen Y fan, Brecon Beacons National Park

Black & White Landscape Photography - Autumn starts...

With autumn starting tomorrow, I like many other landscape photographers are excited for the prospects of that perfect lighting at dawn and dusk, and pretty spectacular lighting conditions throughout the day. It’s my favorite time of year to be traveling through the mountains of Scotland and Wales.

I will be working on my Natural Scenes project next week in the Brecon Beacons National Park, hoping for some spectacular weather conditions to get stunning images of the black mountain range. Whilst in the Welsh mountains I will also be filming my latest Video Tutorial of the Zone System and importance of understanding exposure.

Inspired by the sea - Slapton Sands

Slapton Sands Torcross, by Dartmouth Fine Art Landscape Photographer

Slapton Sands Torcross 
Image Title: Ethereal Mist
Fine Art Landscape Photographer: Craig Howarth

This image was taken at dawn, when there was just me and a fishing trawler at Torcross. This makes me feel very special as we were both out there doing what we love, makes me feel like I'm feeding my soul as an artist. Great to experience such freedom and passion.

The lighting was perfect to give the sheen on the pebbles I had been trying to gain on previous visits. The sea was gently lapping at the shoreline just enough for me to get these nice deep grey tones at the top right of the image, and the bright highlights of the moving foam which looks like sea mist. The image was appropriately named "Ethereal Mist".

Slapton Sands Torcross Dartmouth

Slapton Sands Torcross 
Image Title: The Wash Two
Fine Art Landscape Photographer: Craig Howarth

I often get asked how well timed my shots look and how close I must have got to the action. Well as this image shows I do actually like to get very involved in making my images.

This storm energised wave engulfed me and my tripod, to such an extent it did look like I was actually out at sea for a couple of seconds. Luckily my camera kit bag was a way up on the pebbles away from me!

The Wash Two is part of a series of images from that powerful and dramatic day, The Surf 2  and The Wash can be viewed by following these links.

Kingswear from Dartmouth - Inspired by the Sea

Still Waters, by Dartmouth Fine Art Landscape Photographer

Kingswear from Dartmouth
Image Title: Still Waters
Fine Art Landscape Photographer: Craig Howarth

Different from some of my recent work, as I have included many man made objects in this photograph of Kingswear, something I usually hike miles to get away from. However the lighting was so dramatic and the water was so still I couldn't resist getting this shot on a late spring afternoon, on my way back from Castle Cove, Dartmouth.

There is something very hypnotic about waiting for clouds to move into place sat at the waters edge, boats fenders rumbling as they softly impact each other moved by the changing tide.
