"There is nothing worse than someone lacking energy, passion or an encouraging sense of exploration pointing a camera at you and expecting great shots. Shooting with David Heisler is anything but that kind of experience. Rarely do I feel as brave or confident than when David and I have snapped out the hundreds of images we have together. Most of them great, some of them truly outlandish, but all immensely fun."

"Working with David Heisler is in one word FUN! He makes his models and friends feel safe and sexy while making the whole experience and ton of fun. You can tell he Loves what he does. I have shot with David for years and one thing I can always count on is beautiful amazing photos. He is my friend and my favorite photographer I have worked with"

"As a direct result of shooting with David Heisler, I get more bookings, callbacks and positive comments on my photos. His skill & eye are the best of the best. A true perfectionist! Absolutely worth every penny! Not to mention he's a freakin' blast to work with! He keeps my MOJO workin!"
Melissa MOJO Hunter, Celebrity Reality TV Star, Host & Spokes Model

"Absolutely LOVED working with David! I was in need of professional, yet fun headshots for my business and I'm naturally very uncomfortable in front of the camera. I had seen his work and knew he would make me look as best as I could but I was a little worried about looking awkward and stiff due to my own issues. He really helped me relax and have fun with it. He directed me and kept me laughing the entire time which created some very fun and natural poses. I was so happy with the final images! David is not only an amazing photographer, but his personality + his talent is truly what separates him from the rest!"
Lisa Jauregui, Owner/Artist, Austin Wedding Makeup

"David is my go to guy. Whether I am living in LA, back East or if I have to fly to Austin to shoot with David, that is what I do --- he is that good. David makes me feel beautiful, sassy and me. He knows how to capture those in-between moments, the ones where you do not even know he has the camera working, and makes magic. The energy and creativity he has brought to every shoot that I have done with him is like a box of fireworks. David is not only a photographer, he is an art director and a photo producer, plus I have to say his retouching (not that I use it :) - is quite simply flawless - and after working with him, that is just how you will look and feel - flawless."
Petra Kolber

"Working with David is a positive, high energy experience. He always goes out of his way to get us exactly the images we need. He has developed top notch skills from his work in L.A."
Lori Fox, Designer RAVEN AND LILY

"Working with David is an exciting experience, to be sure. His high energy and effervescence spreads throughout the entire team and leaves a positive impact. His dedication to quality ensures the upmost in professionalism and resulting photos of the highest caliber. He is an open and creative person who will strive to understand your concept and polish it with his own skills and vision."

First of all, working with David was F-U-N. I also felt completely taken care of. There was not a moment where I thought, "um..... this guy does NOT know what he is doing." The shoot was fast, efficient and professional. And I got lots of shots to choose from. What's not to like?
Irene White, Actor, Paramount/StateTheatre

"Working with David was non-stop fun, from the moment I walked in the door. He brought out my fun and authentic personality which is reflected in the photos. I hadn't laughed so hard in a long time. Truly one of the best photography experiences I've had in over 10 years in front of a camera. David possesses a unique combination of childlike whimsy and professionalism. I can't wait to shoot with him again."

"Working with David was magical. As an actor, I felt confident in front of a camera, but a still image has always intimated me. David made me feel comfortable from the moment we met. He is a really smart director - he knew exactly what to say to me to evoke a "look" or "emotion". And as everyone who has had the pleasure of shooting with him knows, that direction comes from a series of animated sounds and movements. He has the ability to capture the essence of a person with his own playful and spontaneous instinct. There was no judgement, and as an artist, I appreciated the freedom."
Anna Schatte, Actor
