Well known PEI Photographers, the MacArthur's have been photographing Islanders and visitors for over 70 years. The studio's name Heckbert is from the founder Edwin Heckbert and is our bloodline. As second and third generation PEI photographers Danny and Marc have been working as a "Dynamic Duo" for over 25 years. Their casual, easy going nature and style help make people feel at ease in front of the camera. With years of training, learning, and perfecting their craft they offer you family keepsakes and heirlooms that will get passed down through generations. Investments in your family... portrait art for life.
When not with a camera in hand, you can find the elder artist (Danny) next to, or on the water, kite sailing, windsurfing, sailing a catamaran or the frozen variety, snowboarding. Sun and vitamin D are his best friends and if he isn't playing in the sand and sun then its the snow.
Marc wears many hats, photographer, editor, tech, marketer, etc. After your session is over Marc gets to work behind the scenes working his magic. When he does get a day off you could find him with a hammer or measuring tape in hand or on his motorcycle with one of his boys, chilling close to the water on a paddleboard or on a snowboard.
Kristen is the face & voice of Heckbert's. (And what a face!) How does a business stay going for 70 years you ask? From sincerity and honest caring about the people, you are doing business with. We don't have clients, we have friends and Kristen is a big part of that. When not serving you, she keeps us running, organized, and on point. Downtime for Kristen usually sees her in one of the many island hockey rinks or basketball courts with her 2 boys. (actually come to think of it there is no downtime for Kristen...she is always moving...fast!)
