Heather Conley began taking pictures when given her first camera at age seven.  After learning that she could not join the boy scouts with her brothers, Heather chose to occupy her time with photography instead.

Self-taught, Heather launched her career in 1997.  Her intimate and compelling environmental portraits have appeared in Rolling Stone, Time, W, Interview, and Poets & Writers and in national ad campaigns for Merrill Lynch, JVC and Bill Blass Time Pieces.

Photographing musicians off-stage has long been a part of Heather’s documentary work and resulted in her significant contribution to the forthcoming documentary film “Golden Days,” about a band she’d photographed from its inception.  Inspired by this, she began making her own documentary film in 2008.  Her film examines the personal conflict between and the line between art and commerce for professional musicians as they struggle to earn a living by their craft in New York City, where Heather currently resides.

About Heather’s photographs, art producer Caitlan Ravin has said, “she really captures the essence of each of her subjects...there's a quietness that allows the viewer to really see the subject.  It's an experience to view her portfolio, her images are honest and downright beautiful.”

Heather was recently awarded runner up in APA's "Tell Us A Story" photo competion for her portraits of Father Joel Warden.
