Interests Heather Harris' photographs of musicians have been published in Rolling Stone, MOJO, Billboard, the Los Angeles Times, Hits, Creem, Music Connection and countless others.

Original signed and framed museum-quality photographic prints of these historical images, plus thousands more, are available for purchase - call or email Heather for more information.
Favorite Movies too many to list: it would upset the site's algorithms. But I will mention "The Public Eye" (loosely based upon Weegee, )the film that best typlifies the dedication required of a professional photographer. Sample dialogue-Q:Why do you put yourself through this? A: It's what I do... I can't read as much as I used to without getting headaches, so I input the likes of Monty Python's Flying Circus, The Prisoner, Lost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 24, House, THe Mighty Boosh, Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Primeval, and all of the myriad, disparate Law & Orders.
