Owner Spotlight: David Heisler
I’m David Heisler, proud owner of David Heisler Photography, LLC.
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
Right from the time I was a child, I’ve had a fascination with people, and it allowed me to connect with them and bring out the best in them. As I developed my talents, I knew photography was something that I wanted to pursue as a career. I enrolled as a Digital and Photographical Imaging major at Southwest Texas State College to pursue my passion for photography. Days after my graduation, I was given the job of a lifetime and began working for world-renowned Portrait Photographer Greg Gorman in Los Angeles. After many years of working with A-list celebrities, advertising agencies, etc., I knew I was ready to step out on my own and pursue my own career. In 2003, David Heisler Photography, LLC came into existence.
Business today is very different than it was when I first started photography because of the advancements in technology. These advancements have given even amateur photographers accessibility to great gear at affordable prices. However, no matter how far equipment goes, it still takes a master eye to compose and photograph, a master of light to light the shots, a director to pose the talent and a technician to retouch the imagery at a professional level. Thus, although gear and technology is making things a whole lot easier for people wanting to become a photographer, years of practice, experience and talent will still win in the world of professional photography
I believe in staying true to who I am, being the best I can be for my business and my community - putting out an amazing product that can further progress my clients and their businesses. Moreover, my motto is “Have Fun! Work Hard!” I also treat everyone with respect and am grateful every day, because I’m doing what I love and it puts the food on the table.
While working with A-list celebrities in Los Angeles for movie posters, editorials, books, fashion spreads, and film shoots were some of the most exhilarating experiences. I also enjoy working with new faces all the time! I love to meet new people, hear their stories, and capture the moments they need most to affect change in there lives and in their businesses.
I owe a debt of gratitude to Carl Deal - my photography professor in college and Greg Gorman, my professional mentor, and boss in Los Angeles. Without their guidance and support, success would have been hard to come by.
If I don’t have a camera in my hand, I am with my family somewhere off the grid. I consider myself Bear Grylls’ younger brother. I love the outdoors, so you’ll find me camping, hiking, rafting, or climbing.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
