The Photography of Gary Howe

Surfer at Leland - Photo by Gary Howe

Our area has a lot of great photographers, and one of these is Gary Howe. You’ve seen his work in all kinds of regional and national publications (including a recent photo feature on Mario Batali in the New York Times). Gary also provides photographic services for a number of area nonprofit organizations including the Chiapas Water Project, Traverse City Film Festival and the Great Lakes Bioneers.

Gary also has a photo blog called Life on Earth where you can see his photos of everything from surfing off Van’s Beach in Leland in late August to polar bear dipping in Empire in February, and closeup looks at caterpillars on North Manitou and the 2007 Traverse City Film Festival.
