About

Howard Muscott has photographed nature, landscapes and wildlife for more than 35 years. Grounded in his early years of hiking, backpacking, and mountain climbing, Howard's love for nature photography is fueled by the exquisite beauty of the natural world and the wildlife residing within it’s various ecosystems.  “The ideal photograph tells a story that speaks directly to the heart and moves people to self-reflection.  It combines one’s vision for the image with the best natural, ideally golden light, and requires both persistence and opportunity.”

Self-taught, Howard has had more than 15 individual and 30 group shows highlighting among other things autumn colors, Southwestern peoples and light, the mountains of Alaska, Colorado and the Pacific Northwest, and wildlife.  Howard’s work has been published on the cover of national journals in education, in newspapers and books, and used on educational and other websites. 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.

Howard is a lifelong special educator and retired professor who directs the New Hampshire Center for Effective Behavioral Interventions and Supports at SERESC in Bedford, NH. Photo courtesy of Douglas Harrington.

Guestbook for Chasing the Golden Light Photography by Howard S. Muscott

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!
