He has had over 60 one-man exhibitions and 40 group exhibitions, mostly in museums and galleries. His photographs are in the collections of more than 25 museums in England, France, German, Austria, and throughout the United States.

His educational activities also include teaching workshops that have been attended by over 200 photographers from five continents.
Howard has published 2 books and 23 limited edition portfolios of prints. He practices the Modernist style of straight photographs pioneered in the 1930s by Group f64, which included his principal teacher, Ansel Adams.
