Reminders Plus Photography LLC was founded by Howard Hinton Jr., an award-winning, Iowa-based photographer. The images he captures are visionary.  Each one tells a story, captures a moment in time, and invites the viewer to partake in it. He asks you to come with him; waver precariously at the edge of the Grand Canyon in A Mountainous View, relax as you dip your toes off The Dock, or slow your breath and gaze upon nature's magnificent beauty in Fluorescent Floral.

A member of the Iowa City Camera Club, Professional Photographers of Iowa (PPI), Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and American Society of Photographers  (ASP).  Howard is a Certified Professional Photographer and has contributed to the International Loan Collection of the Professional Photographers of America.  His images have also received awards through N4C- Iowa City Camera Club, PPI, and PPA.


Howard's services include, but are not limited to: headshots, portraits, family collections, landscapes, animal portraiture, and nature photographic services.
