Abstract:

Photographer Howard Drayton Simmons was born on June 11, 1943 in Pennsylvania, though his family moved around several times when he was young. In 1961, he graduated from Westinghouse High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and immediately enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. While playing in the service bands, he became interested in photography. Upon his discharge, Simmons began working for Gateway Studios as a photo lab technician to become a commercial photographer. Simmons also worked as a staff photographer for Ebony magazine in 1967 and the Chicago Sun-Times in 1968 where he worked with Bob Black, Ovie Carter, and John White. Simmons left the Sun-Times in 1976 to pursue commercial photography and went on to shoot a wide variety of campaigns, from Sears to McDonald’s, and a variety of personalities from James Brown to Michael Jordan.
