Hallmark Institute of Photography announced portrait photographer Gregory Heisler had jointed Hallmark’s staff as Artist-in-Residence for the 2009/2010 school year.
Acclaimed for his portraits for TIME Magazine and other corporate clients, Heisler is also a dedicated Profoto user in his Brooklyn, New York studio and on location. Known for his timeless photos of world leaders including the Clintons, the Bushes, Gorbachev, Mandela, and Arafat, Heisler can also claim an impressive roster of Hollywood icons and major business leaders.
Known for his unorthodox approach in getting his first job as Arnold Newman’s assistant — he called Newman from LaGuardia Airport and said, “I’m here to see you.” — Heisler has a deep appreciation for mentorship of young talent. Previously, Heisler has taught at International Center of Photography, the National Geographic Society, the Smithsonian Institution, and New York’s School of Visual Arts. He will begin teaching at Hallmark on September 9, 2009.
