Personal Background

Hi, my name is Heather Gillich :) First off, I just want to thank you for taking a minute to stop by my little corner of the internet!  I am a photographer and architecture student from the Mississippi Gulf Coast based in New York City.

Looking back on how I grew up, it was evident I was going to end up in a creative field of some sort. I have always loved drawing and learning about anything that could be defined as “artistic.” As time went on, I found myself merging my creative characteristics with an increasing interest for technology. I very much consider myself a “creative” and I am the happiest when I am working, learning new things, and meeting new people.

Creative Pursuit

The ability to tell a person’s story through my love of photography is what inspires me the most. The look on someone’s face when they receive their photos from me is the most amazing feeling because I have helped them discover something about themselves or helped them see themselves in a new way. A photo is so much more than just a picture… it is an experience, a self-confidence booster, a passageway to self-discovery, and a creative mechanism to tell the world who you are.  I would love to help you tell your story, whatever that story may look like for you.
