Presenting images with personality

The 3 events that made this photographer even better!

Just in the last decade, the advent of digital photography, the major camera manufacturers like Nikon and Canon making SLR cameras less expensive and advertising how even amateurs can take professional looking photos, and the iphone almost crippled the photography profession.

Everywhere you go, the iphones and amateur cameras with WiFi are up and clicking; whether it be at a concert, a wedding, an event, or even on the streets. Iphones and WiFi equipped cameras are everywhere and the images are posted immediately through social media outlets.

How do you overcome such obstacles says a professional photographer?!

Well, you get better at what you do technically and educate your public through social media. Post those images within an hour of creation to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and any other outlet and show your stuff! Write a blog about how you got that image to educate the iphone and amateurs how taking a photo by a professional is much more highly valued. Show them through your images your creativity and beauty and technique.

This is what made Joan Heffler Photography a better photographer!

Joan photographed my family of 6 as a special birthday gift from my husband. Which to some people might be a normal occurrence but to some of my family, photographs are a thing to avoid at all costs. Joan made the entire process painless and fun. She was able to charm and relax my granddaughter (among others) in about 1 minute. Joan is a lot of fun and took the time to think about locations and poses that best suited our personalities. Because of that we have some very natural portraits (especially the one in the tree) that I will treasure forever. Thanks so much Joanie, Joanie!!
