A3E Artist Profile: Quade Howes

10and5 is dedicated to bringing you talent from across the South African creative industry by providing a platform for emerging creatives to showcase their work to a wider audience. Driven by this dedication, we have put together a new initiative, the Artist Acceleration and Exposure Programme (A3E), which aims to upskill emerging artists across South Africa, offers a platform for talented artists to reach new markets, and helps them break into the art scene.

Quade Howes is a photographer who currently resides in Cape Town; apart from having photography skills, he is also an experienced graphic designer. As a designer, he has gained experience in multimedia, marketing and print design.

His design career began within the surf, skate, and music industry; however, as a creative professional, he has served in positions that explore various brand identity, advertising, product marketing and print materials.

Howes often works with a dark series of moods (however, this has not been evident in a lot of his surf & skate photography).

In the future, Howes would like to continue experimenting with film and digital and aims to keep conveying a dark series of moods through film and digital. He is interested in exploring locations that aren’t exposed and capturing them on camera.
