Heather Longway is MOA’s resident photographer and videographer. Her love for photography began at a young age, and she honed her skills through years of practice and education.
She began her career as a photojournalist, documenting innumerable stories through her camera lens. Heather’s experiences in photojournalism have deeply influenced her approach to photography, instilling in her a desire to capture images that tell a story and convey a message.
Heather’s expertise in photojournalism has allowed her to bring a unique perspective to her work at the museum. She often incorporates elements of storytelling into her images, creating a visual narrative that draws the viewer into the scene and evokes a sense of emotion and connection.
In addition to her work with the museum, Heather is an avid traveler who has spent extensive time exploring and documenting Cuba and Latin America. Her travels have taken her to major urban corridors and remote corners of these regions, where she has captured some of the most breathtaking landscapes and cultural experiences. Heather’s passion for photography is fueled by her desire to share these experiences with others, to transport them to these distant lands and allow them to see the world through her lens.
When she’s not behind the camera, Heather enjoys exploring the world of Latin dance. She has been studying various styles for many years and finds great joy in the energy and passion of these dances. Heather believes that dance is an art form that is intimately connected to photography, as both mediums allow us to express ourselves and connect with others in unique and meaningful ways.
