I have had a passion for the art of photography since my early teens… It is thru my photography that I document the world as I experience it and I want to share the beauty I have seen with others… My goal is to inspire others, as I have been inspired to take notice, seek and appreciate of the beauty of life.

I am a Ticonderoga native and have lived here my entire life. I make my home on beautiful Eagle Lake. I am a certified Wildlife Habitat Naturalist, licensed New York State Wildlife Rehabilitator, and a certified National Wildlife Federation Habitat Steward and Endangered Species Ambassador. I am also in charge of the local Adopt-A-Highway Program for Eagle Lake Property Owners, Inc.
My work has been included in many local and regional art shows, in magazines, and most notably in the history books, In the Path of War; Children of the American Revolution Tell Their Stories; the Annual Journal of the Washington County Historical Society; and Apple Seeds: growing up in the American Revolution.
In 2012, the National Arbor Day Foundation chose one of my photos as their poster image for that year. In 2014, I printed my first two volumes of photography books, and I am currently working on my third book, which will be completed this winter. Currently, my art can be seen at my home studio in Eagle Lake, throughout the town of Ticonderoga, and in numerous private collections.
I enjoy hiking, kayaking, photography, adventure racing, skydiving, riding my vintage motorcycle, volleyball, rock collecting, historical reenactments, and creating and maintaining walking trails, among many other activities.
Outdoor photographer Carl Heilman II has lived in the Adirondacks in upstate New York since he moved to the region in 1973 to live in his parents’ summer home. He has worked in the region as a carpenter and contractor, and over the years also became well-known for his traditionally hand-crafted snowshoes and his snowshoeing expertise.
Carl has been photographing the wilderness landscape since 1975, working to capture on film both the grandeur of these special places, and the emotional and spiritual connection he has felt as well. His passion for spending as much time as possible in some of the wildest regions of the Adirondacks, soon became a lifelong quest to create images that record the essence of a true wilderness experience, and help convey that feeling to others. Today he is a full time professional outdoor nature photographer.
