A Huge “Thank You” to Duane Heaton of Duane Heaton Photography!

Duane Heaton PhotographyDuane Heaton just left The Frederick Basket Company after spending a few hours helping me to perfect my gift basket shots. This is something I continually struggle with. My backgrounds are never as white as I’d like them to be, the perfect props, the lighting needs to be just so …. But tonight I believe I am one step closer to perfection thanks to Duane.

For those of you who don’t know Duane Heaton he is a very talented photographer here in Frederick, Maryland. He has done photo shoots for many companies including The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas and teaches numerous photography workshops and classes.

The Frederick Basket CompanyHow did I get so lucky as to meet Duane? It was Sunday afternoon, the weather was nice and I was looking for a short outing to lift my spirits. What better place to explore then Penn Camera in Rockville. My husband & I had only been there once but when you are looking for a new addition for your camera it is the perfect spot! I noticed the large selection of backdrops in many beautiful colors and textures and didn’t know where to begin. Duane answered my many questions and the more we talked the more I was drawn to his creative nature. After a half hour or so, I asked if he would consider spending a few hours helping me perfect my pictures and to my delight he generously agreed! and the rest as they say is history.

The Frederick Basket Company ribbonDuane is going to be doing a photo shoot of The Frederick Basket Company in the very near future. Stay tuned for the pictures! I can hardly wait. They are going to be awesome!

The Frederick Basket Company new gift basket“My name is Duane Heaton and I run a photography studio based in Frederick, MD. I made a promise to myself when I started this business 20 years ago that I would give my clients images that would capture the love, romance and excitement of their lives. So over the years, I’ve developed a style of imagery that has real heart and soul. I stay away from the cookie-cutter look you get from the box chain store, ensuring that my clients get a piece of artwork that is about them and only them. It’s been really successful so far. I‘ve been really fortunate to have forged relationships with my clients that allow me to be part of their lives. I couldn’t ask for a better job.” Duane Heaton
