What makes a great photographer?

Great photographers see what others do not! Great photographers are like artists. They see composition in a scene, they see the symmetry in the background and place their subjects to maintain that symmetry and enhance that person’s features. A great photographer would never let a flag pole or tree branch stick out of one’s head in a photo. A great photographer sees the beauty in all  subjects and sculpts a magnificent piece of art.

A great photographer also builds a strong relationship with her subjects as the session unfolds and that is an art in itself.  Seeing the subject’s soul and beauty inside and bringing it to the surface to allow that person to shine in front of the lens makes for a great photographer’s skills and a beautiful portrait.

Wouldn’t you want that skill photographing YOU?

Over the years I have had several headshots by Joan and she never disappoints. I am extremely pleased with my recent headshot. Joan takes the time to make suggestions with your appearance and posing. Joan’s personality (upbeat, funny and energetic) makes you completely at ease which I believe helps with the outcome of your pictures. Joan takes great pride in her work and is extremely professional and personable.
I highly recommend Joan Heffler with Joan Heffler Photography.
