About me
Photographers throughout the Mid- Atlantic region will be gathering in early April 2014 for a fun-filled Photo Workshop, in beautiful downtown Havre de Grace, MD. Entitled “Model Shootout”, this exciting workshop will be conducted by professional photographer and instructor Leo Heppner. From 10 AM - 4 PM on Sunday, April 6th, Leo will be giving instructions on how to create compelling images of models in both studio and on-location environments. Participants will be photographing several professional live models who will be on-hand. Through technical instruction and practical advice, Leo will cover Digital SLR camera settings and photography; creative composition; posing and lighting techniques; hair and make-up tips; and obtaining rapport with models. Participants should bring their Digital SLR camera and gadget bag with plenty of memory cards and charged batteries for lots of shooting.

The Workshop will take place at La Banque de Fleuve, 321 St John St, Havre de Grace, MD, on Sunday, April 6th. Workshop fee is $75.00 and includes signed model release forms. Acceptable methods of payment are check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express and PayPal payments.

Thank you for reading my profile and viewing my portfolio. For 2014, I anticipate teaching photography courses at the community college level and writing review articles on photographic accessories to a greater level than previously before. Therefore, I will have a larger need for models (both female and male), for posing for my classes and reviews. If you are a model and think you would be a good fit for what I am doing, then please get in touch! I will be pleased to give you a look!

I am a professional photographer with over 36 years of experience, based in Havre de Grace, MD and the surrounding Baltimore-Washington Metro area. I was the staff photographer for Nor'easter Magazine for 8 years, before it ceased production. However, as an instructor of photography at various local colleges, and one that conducts workshops independently, I am always looking for new talent to pose for my classes and workshops. Also, I need models for editorial projects, as well. Please contact me if you are interested in working with me in my various projects.

Also, if you are a male or female looking for that special headshot, "lifestyle" image or complete portfolio, you should look no further. I strive to do business in a friendly, professional and personal manner. I have been described by my clients as taking an unobtrusive approach to picture taking, capturing the naturalness of the moment, in addition to be easy-going and reliable. I shoot in digital and have the ability to enhance photos with Adobe Photoshop, although I usually have a minimal need to retouch my photos. Why not call me today at 443-421-1662 to discuss the details and make an appointment for your photoshoot?

In addition to shooting, I teach photography at the college level at CCBC-Essex Campus, and Washington School of Photography in Rockville, MD. Moreover, I write a monthly column named, "Photo Gadgetry", that appears in Digital Camera Magazine seen at www.digicamera.com.   

Please note: Before making a Friend Request, I ask that you first post a Tag, make a Comment or say hello, otherwise I may not approve your request!

Wishing you all the best!

Thanks, Leo
