Patrick Howard was born and grew up in the New Jersey Shore town of Manasquan, where he learned the old ways of photography from his father, a professional specializing in weddings and portraits. After studying some of the finer points more formally, he moved to Galway, Ireland in 1995 and continued to develop his skills. He has since embraced the digital revolution while retaining an affinity for the traditional methods. As comfortable with his Canon digital and laptop, as with his Leica and the darkroom.
The youngest member of a family of photographers, he is considered to be the most artistic of the group, and possseses a keen eye that sees what many others miss. A successful solo exhibition at the Art House Gallery in Tuam in 2005 was followed by him being one of the first winners of Galway West's photography competition.
