Hi! My name is Mia Howle and I am a freelance photographer based in Charlotte, NC. Photography has always served as a great creative outlet and passion of mine. In January 2017, I decided to turn this passion into a career and explore the endless possibilities.

My purpose:

Throughout my childhood, my father instilled in me the value of perseverance and the unwavering beauty of nature. He was given the nickname “Black Bear” by family and friends, which serves as the inspiration for the name apBEARture photography. Although he passed away when I was younger, these values and his memory have shaped my life. I hope to continue to represent this in my life and through my work.

apBEARture represents the curious, strong-willed, and innovative person I am today.
