"Hera Bell is a photographer with a heart and soul... a true artist! From the work of hers that I have seen, she captures each subject's uniqueness, and creates portraits that truly highlight who they are. I have been fortunate enough to be photographed by her for a show I produced... Love, Loss and What I Wore at The Centaur Theatre, and she made the entire cast look like stars. "
Ellen David (Theatre and movie actress/Director) February 2017
" I think it is wrong to call Hera's works "photographs". It is not a moment captured to a media but a carefully orchestrated spectacle. As much effort is put into creating a story as in "telling it". Bravo! "
Michael Mossiagin (Senior IT Consultant and Avid Photographer)January 2016
"Hera, your creativity is amazing! Your art, so unique, your personality, just divine.."
Anita Phillips (Owner of Creative Expressions Invitation Couture) November 2015
"Thank you Hera Bell for a most joyful and memorable time in my life, absolutely and beautifully captured. It was a privilege and a blessing to have shared the stage with my Companeras of such warmth and charm. And most of all their own beautiful light and wonderful individuality. I have been given five more sisters to love. You are truly amazing my dear Hera Bell. Thank you again."
Ranee Lee (Canadian jazz musician, actress,author and TV personality) April 2015
"Working with photographer and artist Hera Bell is both an inspiration and a comfort for me: you know she will see you in the way you want to be seen, and you can relax into the place where she often finds you. Her talents with light and image editing elevate her subjects into works of art. It is a pleasure to be photographed by Hera."
Howard Rosenstein (Canadian actor) November 2014
"I have worked with photographers around the world and it is Hera's eye for detail, clarity and artistry that makes her stand out above the rest. I am simply floored by her talent behind the lens. Beautiful work.! Thank you "
Terra C Macleod (Broadway lead actress in Chicago the musical) October 2013
"Hera is more than a photographer, she is an artist. She knows how to capture the essence of your personality. Her lighting is like a piece of sculpture fitted around your face and body. She is capable of making you come alive in ways you did not think were possible."
Vittorio Rossi (Actor, screenwriter) August 2013
I have never met Hera Bell, but am so impressed with her work.
Fresh doesn't even begin to describe what she does.
Intense, bold, brash and tender are some of the adjectives...
but whatever you see in her work, you are looking at a true artist.
She is a Montreal portrait photographer.
from Sandi Krawchenko (former CTV news reporter and author) September 2012
".....She shies away now from photographing traditional models
and focuses on bringing out the beauty and sensuality of average
men and women....."
Mike King from Montreal Gazette (February 1st. 2001)
