I am Heather Gould, the face sometimes seen peeking from behind the camera or lost behind the laptop. The site you're visiting is the most recent result of education based upon need.
My life has been documented on film since my first Polaroid camera given to me as a child. In my early teens, I saved every hard earned penny to invest in my Minolta XG-1, which served me well until the digital age hit full force. When film became impractical for my needs, I tried several digital cameras, but none provided the comfort that I found in my old SLR, and the purchase of my first Nikon DSLR felt like coming home.
My background is tightly woven with horses and dogs, and these have been the focus of much of my work. The result is that I have developed a niche in these worlds, but I also enjoy shooting people and capturing those touching and memorable events in life.
When the Internet became a force to be reckoned with, it was only natural that my dog and horse businesses would follow suit. The first website was a GeoCities site built with their WYSIWYG editor. This rapidly became limiting, and my launch into learning to design sites from scratch began.
