Glen Howey

Tutor and Landscape Photographer

Biography

Glen has been a travel, documentary and landscape photographer for more than 30 years. As an educator at Massey University, The Photo School and through workshops, really enjoying helping others discover their affinity for photography. He has travelled to and photographed more than 50 countries, and led groups on many photographic tours to remote areas of Cambodia, and around some pretty spectacular places in New Zealand.

In 2015, Glen documented the ruins of the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes in a book I called, Please Demolish With A Kind Heart – Behind Christchurch’s Red Zone.The book received the Photographic Book Of The Year in 2017 from the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography.

“I find landscape photography simply exhilarating. It takes my breath away. New Zealand offers an expansive terrain and the most dramatic seasonal changes. I moved to Queenstown in 2018 to get amongst it. But you won’t find me flying in by helicopter. I take time to walk in, sometimes for days on end. Immersing myself in the landscape gives me a sense of the life force of the land. This, with a reverence for the natural light of an enormous changing sky, fuels my passion. My goal is to share these landscapes as centrepiece artworks that transport the viewer, again and again, to the most incredible moments in time at the most incredible landmarks.”

Background

Glen graduated from Wellington Polytechnic with an Advanced Certificate in Photography (Honours) and also holds a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Visual Art and Design), majoring in Photography, from Whitireia New Zealand.
