Howard B. Marler was born on November 4, 1921 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. In 1940 he moved to Washington D.C. and worked at Hoover Field for Western Union and later at a Hot Shoppes restaurant. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Alexandria, worked for the Navy Yard, and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.

He started his professional photography business Photos By Marler in the Washington DC-area in the 1950s. In the course of his career, he developed expertise in detailed aerial photographs.
