Dylan Howell, photographer in Portland, Oregon



I’ve been working as a photographer for 13 years.

I came to Portland from Boise, Idaho. I quickly fell in love with the city while on a photo assignment and instantly decided I needed to move. I live near Mt. Tabor with my two cats and wife Jess. Outside of photography, I spend my time cycling, working on my Miata, rock climbing, and touring the local vegan restaurant scene.

Dylan M Howell photographer

A few years back, I decided to move to Portland, Oregon.

I wanted to be closer to the nature of the Pacific Northwest, to be near the ocean, and to surround myself with interesting and artistic people. Through my travels, I never find a place that feels more like home.

I’m often asked why I shoot weddings and the answer is simple. There is no better workplace. Where else are you surrounded by love, beauty, happiness and joy every time you go to work?

Capturing these stories for others gives me an incredible feeling of satisfaction, one that I’ve never found anywhere else.

I teach SEO to photographers

Over my career, I’ve been lucky to learn quite a bit about marketing for photographers. I have a business that teaches photographers how to be found online. It is incredibly rewarding to see their growth and success.
