About Me

Hello - I am Rich Howard, a retired PADI instructor and co-owner of Oceans of Images Photography, founded in 1995, with my wife, Laura Howard, based out of Tampa, Florida. I have been fortunate to have traveled around the globe to photograph some of the most amazing underwater life on the planet. Our work has been featured in advertising campaigns, product packaging and published world wide with National Geographic and the BBC Nature to name a few. With over 35 years of underwater photography experience, I now enjoy sharing my time and talents with non-profit, marine conservation organizations and leading international dive travel. Check out our latest trip schedule - and join us for an upcoming trip by checking out our website, www.OceansOfImages.com. I am blessed with two children, now in their early twenties, both of whom are amazing divers. Our son, too is an amazing published photographer and newly graduated Marine Biologist, while our daughter is completing her Bio-Chemistry degree. I look forward to learning new techniques and sharing what I can on this most excellent platform. Be safe - and good shooting. - Rich Howard
