I’m Howard Hinton Jr., an Iowa-based photographic artist, co-owner of Reminders Plus Photography LLC. I originally created images in the negative and slide transparency film-based mediums until I entered the digital arena in 2002.
The images that I shape, form, or create embody what I see, and they reveal my interpretation of the information my eyes provide. My artwork is not necessarily a historical perspective, but it reflects my vision, heart, and life experiences. My aim is to tell a story and capture a moment in time that is unique and introspective to the viewer. My artwork is traditionally and classically based, yet it's also ever-refining, staying up-to-date and improving for tomorrow. Love, joy, and the challenges of creating works of art are what keeps me inspired. My artwork is primarily displayed on dye sublimation to aluminum process, resulting in a metal print. The other substrate in which I display my artwork is via premium gallery wraps.
I have images in Professional Photographers of America’s (PPA) Loan collection, am a PPA Master Photographer(M.Photog) and a PPA Certified Professional Photographer (CPP). In 2019, I was awarded a Gold medalist in PPA International Photographic Competition.
I am a long-standing member of the Iowa City Camera Club, a member of the Professional Photographers of Iowa, the Professional Photographers of America., and American Society of Photographers.
