Michal Heron is a nationally recognized photographer whose work has been widely published in books and periodicals, exhibited in group and solo shows and represented by major stock agencies. She has work in the collections of The Princeton University Library and The George Eastman House, among others.
For many years she was based in New York City and currently lives on a 136 acre farm in the Catskill Mountains working from her studio in the hamlet of Grahamsville, NY.
After spending time as a photo editor in publishing (and learning first hand what a client expects from a photographer) she began to freelance in photography specializing in peoples and cultures including the Native American and Appalachian peoples.
Having shot film in the past, Heron has embraced the digital world, welcoming the immediacy, ability to involve the client at an early stage and the creative freedom digital offers.
Leaning heavily on her art history background, Heron enjoys translating a client’s concept into images that are meaningful as well as beautiful. Having traveled widely on assignment, Heron can handle the logistics of location shoots with ease. She offers very serviceable Spanish and good contacts in Spanish speaking countries.
Solving problems both pragmatic and aesthetic are her strong points. As one client put it: “You can always count on Michal to exceed your creative expectations while solving all your problems.“
