About Photographer Howard Ande Howard Ande is a professional photographer living in Bartlett, Illinois, with his wife and two children. A native New Englander, Ande got his start photographing railroads in his northwestern Connecticut hometown. Railroad photography remains Ande s favorite subject, but he will photograph anything with a strong visual impact. While he has never taken a course in photography, Ande views the craft s learning process as an ongoing challenge, with knowledge and fine-tuning gained in each photography session. Ande s railroad photos have been published extensively worldwide and were featured in a Japanese book on American railways. In addition to railroads, he photographs other transportation modes, as well as agricultural, industrial, and nostalgic scenes, such as Route 66. Living near Chicago also provides Ande with a myriad of photo subjects relating to city life and the natural beauty of the city s lakefront. He also does western U.S. landscape work for international advertising.
