My name is David Howell and I am a landscape and urban photographer from Dundee, Scotland.
All my life I have been involved in the creative arts in some form or another. I’ve worked in numerous print houses as a graphic designer. As a video editor and cameraman for 2 major news organisations and a fine art landscape and figurative painter. The one thing though that has always been consistent through my life has been taking photographs.
I absolutely love photography! I was given my first camera as a young boy and I never looked back. As a self taught photographer, my goal has always been to show a feeling or emotion in my photos over a visual record of a location. I’m primarily a landscape photographer as I love hiking and camping out in nature and exploring the hidden locations that not everyone has the opportunity to see. I have recently directed my efforts to capturing the fantastic people and cities that Europe has to offer and shoot Urban and Street photography as well.
To achieve the colours that you see in my photographs, I use filters in the form of Grads, Polarizers and Neutral Density filters. These help add balance between the sky and foreground. My method to editing my photos is to enhance what is already there and bring out what the original scene looked and felt like while I was on location shooting.
I am extremely fortunate to live in what has been voted the world’s most beautiful country. From awe-inspiring landscapes to beautiful cities and fascinating people, Scotland really does take your breath away.
My photographs have recently been featured in the following publications and websites…
Condé Nast – Traveller Magazine – July/August 2017
Article: The Trend For Multi-Tasking – Amazing People Doing Amazing Things In Amazing Places (West Ward Works)
