Meet the Trailcampro Staff




Rich Howell

Founder and CEO of

Rich started building and tinkering with trail cameras many years ago as a hobby in his spare time.  In his search for buying the "best" available trail camera, he became frustrated by both the lack of public information on the different cameras and the inaccurate advertising statements from the manufacturers.

He started performing his own independent tests on all the available trail camera models.  Hence, the reason was built - to share his findings on which cameras performed the best in certain situations.

Rich's hobbies include; rooting for Mizzou football and basketball, mountain biking, road cycling, running, camera trapping and spending time with his wife and three kids.


Charles Padgett

Technical Guru 

Charles, or as we like to call him - "Chuck" - is a retired math teacher.  Born and raised in Southwest Missouri, he has had a passion for all things outdoors his entire life.

Meticulous, methodical and detail oriented, Chuck is the perfect person to perform the majority of Trailcampro's testing procedures.  Chuck also does most of our product pictures and answers the toughest trail camera questions out there.

Chuck enjoys riding his Harley, fishing the boundary waters in Minnesota, chasing Missouri Whitetails and enjoying family time with his wife, kids, and grandkids.



Marc Stokes

"The Shipping Department"

Marc is known in these parts as being one of the fastest human beings on anything with two wheels (although he would never admit it).  He uses that speed to ship trail cameras out in record time.

When he is not "schooling" the rest of us on bikes, Marc is spending time with his wife, daughter, backpacking, camping and spending time outdoors.


Landon Baker

Landon is the newest addition to the Trailcampro Staff and has been handling a little bit of everything. He is a lifelong hunter, fisherman, and loves going to the lake. Landon considers himself the redneck of our crew; you can find much of his work on our social media pages!
