The Howorths experts in travel writing and photography


Travel writing and photography

The Howorths, otherwise known as Frances & Michael Howorth, are a highly experienced travel writing and photography team.

We travel the world in search of stories for publication in magazines newspapers and on websites.

The Howorths website illustrates our insightful travel writing and our most inspiring photography. It also features a selection of our entertaining magazine articles that have been printed and published around the world.

As a freelance writing and photography team, we are specifically involved with luxury yachts both large and small.

We also cover small, boutique cruise ships, oceanside resort hotels and spas.

Recently we have extended our areas of interest to include travel by road. We do this driving campervans and motorhomes or, as we prefer to call them: Motorcaravans.
