About the Photographer

Hello! My name is Virginia Howell and I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself. My husband Bill and I are originally from Michigan, we are now full time residents in Venice FL.

Southwest Florida is a wonderful area and we enjoy every minute living here. Because we have nine grandchildren I can regularly be seen at a local airport, off to visit them in Michigan.  

During the recent pandemic we started going to sunsets with friends and I began taking sunset photos. I was encouraged to start making them available to the public by family and friends.

When the Venice Gulf Coast Living Magazine asked if they could use one of my photos on their cover, it was then I decided maybe I should do what I love as a profession. It's so nice to love what you do and look forward to doing it day after day! It pleases me to know that many people in Florida and across the world are enjoying my photography.

I am self taught in the applications used for photography and the camera, which means that I have a lot to learn. Please enjoy my photography. I am truly blessed and grateful.
