Howard was the featured artist at the 34th Annual Beaver Brook Fall Festival in 2014. He has won numerous awards for both wildlife and portraits including most recently, Best in Show for his Snowy Owl in Flight at Beaver Brook Association and 2nd Place Overall for Art in the Park in Merrimack, NH in 2015.  He is currently the chairperson of the High School Scholarship program at the Manchester Artist Association.

Guestbook for Chasing the Golden Light Photography by Howard S. Muscott
Joan and Allen(non-registered)
Howard - Thank you so much for giving us a glimpse of the beautiful pileated woodpecker chick on your live feed! So amazing to see it, as it waits and watches for his parent to come back to him --- with food. Your incredible photos do indeed tell a story. So many stories going on in nature daily, and, if it weren't for someone like yourself, we would never know about them. Hope to follow more of your work, or run into you again on the trail!
