About Howard Cheek Photography

I excelled early in life as a high school athlete. In 1971 I achieved All-State status (all C.I.F.football linebacker) in California. Fast-forward to 1994 and a move to Central Texas. I now live on 6 acres of Hill Country in its natural state, doing most of my shooting right here at home over the last 15 years. Awarded the Nature Conservancy Grand prize winning calendar cover shot for 2009. Published in Nature's Best Photography, National Geographic, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and National Wildlife magazines to name just a few. Also published in hard cover books & other educational materials. Public Broadcasting television interview in 2010 (see Google/youtube). I've developed a connection with nature over time that's hard to describe, the rewards without limit. I hope you enjoy my work.
