Horace Henry is a professional photographer. A native of Palmetto, Georgia, Horace is a college-trained musician and worked at his alma mater, Clark College, after graduating. Also, while working at Clark and before pursuing a career in mortgage banking, it was Horace’s pleasure to enjoy over fifteen years of being on the road as a professional musician, sharing the stage with Marvin Gaye, the Temptations, and the Isley Brothers. Through it all, he could not shake off the insatiable desire to be a photographer. In 1996, he dropped out of corporate America altogether and became self-employed as a photographer. With his contributions as a photojournalist and still photographer, Horace has been enjoying the pursuit of his passion ever since. Find him at www.horacehenryphotography.com.
