Glen Howey Photographer

Glen Howey – Behind the camera

Glen discovered photography at the age of 15, and from that moment he has seen it as a vehicle to understanding and appreciating the world around him.

After completing his photographic studies in Wellington, Glen spent 4 years working as a press photographer. He then travelled and photographed the world for several years before returning to Wellington and becoming a photography lecturer at Massey University.

For Glen, photography is about capturing a point in time through the purest lens, with prophecy, honesty and passion.

His photographic style is contemporary and real, and the essence of this is encapsulated in “pure vision”.
