Stunning Visuals

Engaging Stories

Real Life Super Heroes in Madison, WI photographed for my VisCom magazine capstone project. These gentlemen allowed me to patrol with them in Minneapolis and Madison, gleefully living out my childhood dreams.


Passion & Craft

Jam session at the 2011 Galax Fiddle Convention, from my Master’s Project Modern Old-Time Fiddling. As a classically-trained violinist, I have always been fascinated by traditional American fiddle players.


Everyone has a story to tell.

Pleased to Meet You

I'm Heather

Armed with a dual B.A. in English and Music and an M.A. in Photojournalism & Multimedia, I try to understand the world in as many ways as possible. No matter what content comes my way, I find thrills in creating succinct scenes and engaging stories. Above all, I believe that the best stories are found through great characters and best told with stunning visuals. I am committed to showing, through storytelling, that the one commonality all people have is simply that they are all people.

My favorite software tools

All Adobe
Video Editing
Adobe Creative Cloud FTW!

Editing is like solving a puzzle with a constantly shifting idea of the final image. Finding the best pieces and fitting them in the best way is my favorite thrill.

DSLR-lover for life!

Capturing audio alongside moving pictures brings just the right mix of adrenaline and joy. Video isn’t the right choice for every story, but it is my one true passion.

Equality for Canons and Nikons!

Photography was my first love. From photojournalism to corporate products, the simplicity of being able to immortalize a moment should never be under-appreciated.

Client recognition and support:

It was a pleasure to work with Heather. I left much of the creative portion to her, and she vastly exceeded expectations. I would not hesitate to work with Heather again on anything related to multimedia.
