Howard Goldbaum

Professor Emeritus


Howard Goldbaum was a member of the Reynolds School faculty from 2003 to 2020. During that time, he served in numerous roles including director of the Reynolds School Graduate Program. 

Howard enjoys the burgeoning sense of communications enrichment that students undergo when they understand that they’ve acquired fluency in a new language, that their ideas and their observations can be expressed in new ways, with new levels of nuance and meaning. Sharing in this process of his students’ empowerment and discovery keeps him going.

He holds an M.A. in Communications Photography from Syracuse University and a B.A. in English from the University of Connecticut. He was previously a photography professor/ founding director of the multimedia program at Bradley University, Chief photographer for El Vocero and has served as a freelance photographer for Newsweek, the Hartford Courant, the New Haven Register, and the Reno Gazette-Journal.

Howard works on a variety of original projects in his free time. Below you will find a creative projects sampler of his work.
