The Guild of Photographers

Heather Burns

Heather has achieved three Master Craftsman awards with the Guild and is predominantly regarded for her Gothic images, created using composites and textures. She fell in love with photography whilst engaging in her other passion for music and she began to explore the creative side of combining multiple images to produce artwork for albums and posters. Over time, her love for storytelling and creative work completely over took the music and she uses her influences including HG Wells, Bram Stoker, Mary Shelly and Conan Doyle to inspire her imagination with tales of shadowy darkness, brilliant detectives and medical experimentation, media which are reflected in many of her images. Heather is passionate about inspiring others to ‘think out of the box’ and push their photography as far as their imagination will allow.
