Above & Beyond – Photographer tackles the world’s best

Howard Schatz is a living master.  He has an exceptional and rare talent to take a photograph that tells a compelling story.  Unique in technique, his stories unfold frame by frame and via interpersonal videos.

Approximately 3 years ago (2016-17), Howard, along with his wife and business partner Beverly, set out to combine three new volumes to his extensive photography portfolio and career.  Schatz has been performing the monumental task of photographing top athletes, specifically NFL players, dancers and society’s foremost thought leaders.  His photography career has taken him to the depths of our oceans, the excitement of fashion runways, the halls of power and the enchantment of celebrity be it on Broadway, Lincoln Center or Hollywood.

The new body of works are included in “Above & Beyond,” “The Shape of the NFL” and “Modern Modern Dance.”  Above & Beyond is a visual tribute to those who have exceeded in their professions.

Dr Anthony Fauci by Howard Schatz

As part of Above & Beyond, Dr. Anthony Fauci by Howard Schatz.


In a recent post, Howard shared his interview with America’s leading authority on infectious diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci.  As should be listened to, Howard’s camera is the reason for an in-depth one-on-one interview and discussion about what has made Dr. Fauci and others like him explore further than most.  Above & Beyond should be included in both your photo collection for inspiration and as part of your YoutubeTV viewing habit.

Shape of the NFL & Modern Dance:

For those exploring what it takes to be physically ready for a professional football career, Howard’s imagery is your marker.  The mission of “Shape of the NFL” is to document both sides of the ball with as many of the NFL’s top athletes.  In his style, Schatz shows players in motion and close up.  From thundering arms to the sturdiest of the core, Howard provides a photographically complete perspective of each player.   Similarly, “Modern Modern Dance” covers the elegance, strains, perseverance, and movement of the form – one frame at a time.

Howard’s insight stems from his professionalism and unstoppable curiosity.   When viewing his portfolios one can not stop but wonder how extraordinary it is to be a world-class photographer – in addition to his expertise as a doctor.

For assistance with any of these works reach out to one of Howard’s leading galleries, like GALLERY M in Denver, Colorado.
