Almustafa's Vision: Joy & The Sea (I) by DM Heebner

“The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran is one of my all time favorite books. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. If you have, I highly recommend re-reading it. It is an epically beautiful collection of poetry laid out in a narrative that touches on subjects including: life, death, joy, sorrow, giving, marriage, reason, friendship, pain to name a few. Written in 1923, this work stands the test of the time with its universally empathetic tributes to the human experience.

Georgetown Art Center by DM Heebner

I’m a firm believer that the arts are an extremely important component to any community, especially small communities. The arts provide an avenue of culture, education, discussion and experiences that can range from political to purely artistic, displayed in everything from poetry to painting to photography to the theatre. There’s really no limit to how impactful the arts can be to a city or town.

My Favorite Photograph by DM Heebner

I love taking photographs. I carry a camera with me almost everywhere I go. Photography is something I've always had a quiet fascination with. The art of capturing a moment, making time stand still, and evoking emotion from a memory has always seemed like the highest form of art.

A Quiet Day by DM Heebner

To kick off the start of a very busy month and even busier season of school, work and travel, I took myself on a personal retreat. I drove to Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside, California for a day of retreat, meditation, reading, writing, silence, and solitude. As an artist, spiritual individual, Enneagram 4(w5), INFJ, and whatever other indicators that I'm an extreme introvert, I felt taking a vow of silence for a day at a monastery would be a great way to recharge.

What Kind of Camera Should I Buy? by DM Heebner

What Kind of Camera Should I Buy? is one of the most common questions I get asked when people find out I'm a professional photographer. I love talking about cameras, the history of cameras, technological advances, and where the market is headed. But, most people aren't looking for me to geek out, they simply want to know what kind of camera they should buy. It's a fair and valid question considering the market is saturated with options: Nikon...Canon...Fuji...Leica...Hasselblad...Sony...the list is endless.

That Perfect House by DM Heebner

Every once in awhile I'll get the opportunity to photograph one of those perfect houses. You know, the ones where the moment you walk in you're overwhelmed by how masterfully the architecture and decor compliment each other, and how, if they'd let you, you'd move right in.

Smokey Mo's by DM Heebner

If I've learned anything over the last 4 years in Austin it's that Texans love two things: Texas and BBQ. Growing up in New York a BBQ meant hamburgers, hot dogs, and spiedies. It didn't really matter if the grill was charcoal or gas, whatever you had was good enough. It took almost no time to learn that BBQ in Texas is a far cry from what I'm used to and is, in fact, a sacred, time-honored, regionally specific craft.

Reflections: Balboa At Night by DM Heebner

Balboa At Night is one of my early photographs. It's not my first, but one of my very early ones. It wasn't overly planned or strategically scouted. I was on a walk with B, looked over and loved the reflection in the pool.
