Me! I love taking pictures!
Thank you for visiting my TanyaHoward.SmugMug.com website where you can easily buy prints and keepsakes; along with contacting me for questions and custom order sizes & pricing!
I spent many years, however, building up my resume site where about 25% of my work is posted.
I have the other 75% scattered in special groups & sites where I have won awards and the rest are in folders within my hard drive.
(5 of my photos are on the Smithsonian website!)
Yes, one-by-one they will make their way here!
...and see more of my work!
Below are photos from some of my Special Events, Photo Editing Skills & Fantasy Surrealism!

Artist Ricardo Paniagua
West Village, Dallas, Texas
Years back there was a seed planted on McKinney Avenue in Big D! Throughout a lifespan from that near downtown urban seed a birth of transformation through a few generations of city goers have watered the budding collective. I have been a silent part of that.
West Village is located in this electric district where it influences the community to enjoy shopping, dining movies and the Arts. On November 11, 2016 Artist Ricardo Paniagua was honored with a Mural Reveal Party where his craft of painting patterns and geometric abstraction came to life in the center of West Village. Ricardo, a friend of mine, is a curious and yet serious Dallas-born whiz where struggles have never stopped him from mastering his inventive forms of art.
As my brother tells us both, “Don’t get off the path, Ricardo!” Bravo to you!
RICHMOND PUNCH PRODUCTIONS
If you think you have ever heard the greatest violin player, you haven't heard anything til you have heard Richmond!
I volunteer at times for "Believe & Achieve" where we work with special needs adults. Denise and I had arranged to assist the Salvation Army to "ring the bell" around holiday time at Frye's in Plano, Texas. One of our very talented clients, Taylor, is quite amazing at his violin skills - so I thought it would be cool to call Richmond and invite him to "pop up" as a surprise to Taylor while playing his violin!
The crowd went crazy and Taylor had tears in his eyes! Richmond asked me to work up a poster for him to use from a photo he already had. I added some graphics to it and touched it up!
(See below for a group shot of all of us at Frye's ringing the bell.)

Turtle Creek ~ Dallas, Texas

Shaun Rabb, Fox 4 News, covering the story of Robert E Lee's statue being removed and placed in storage. I had the enjoyable experience speaking with Shaun Rabb while visiting the statue one last time before it was whisked away.
I told him that I watch him every night at 5pm, "Yep I do"! He got a chuckle from that! Great guy and love his reporting style!
I had the honor of shooting pix for the More Cowbell Band at Willhoite's in Grapevine, Texas. They wanted a few new ad shots for press release. Here is a sampling of what I came up with for them! I also made their Halloween Poster (below).

Chuy's "Restaurant Day" Event!
This photo also appeared in the Plano Chuy's ads.
Tripod and timer was used so I could get in the pic!
The Mother asked that I do an aged, vintage and old style for the family portrait to hang above her western fireplace.
I created a DAGUERREO effect for it and she loved it!
Photo above is an Actor/Model,
I had him sit on a stool in front of the Las Colinas Movie Studios brick wall on a sunny day.
When he asked what this pic would be for, I just told him "It's my mystery shot!"
He loved it!
I created everything in the background;
including clouds I often photograph!

You asked for it!
Here it all comes!
I'll be expanding my gallery to include my Surreal, Fantasy & Oddities every day!
The requests for more of these to be available in canvas prints are like a locomotive driving me to do more!
