Season 17 Poster

Here is a first look at the stunning Heartland Season 17 poster! Feedback is welcome. What do you think of it?

The artwork for Season 17 was shot live on location by Calgary-based photographer Leah Hennel. Leah's work will be familiar to Heartland fans, as her photographs stand in for Jessica's (Michelle Nolden) photos on the show. The first time Leah's work appeared in the series was in Season 16, episode 6, when Jessica exhibited a gallery of her work in New York City.

Leah photographed Amber Marshall, Shaun Johnston, Michelle Morgan, and Chris Potter at a location near the Heartland Dude Ranch set during golden hour. The light could not have been better. The photo shoot was a true team effort with wranglers managing the horses, hair and makeup team touching up the cast, the costume department perfectly designing and maintaining the looks, and the locations team and craft services keeping the cast and crew fed and comfortable.

Fun fact: To ensure that the horse's ears were pointed toward the camera, one of the wranglers played horse sounds "neighing" on her iPhone. If the horses needed additional perking up, our wranglers would crunch an empty water bottle next to Leah. These sounds keep our horses photo ready.
