Consistently advertised as a photographer and graphic artist. Heysse was also a printer and bookseller. His printing works operated at no. 16 (renumbered 20) in 1895.

He commenced publication of a weekly free sheet “Annoncenblad van Eecloo en het Meetjesland” on 2.6.1907 including advertisements of properties “in photo-engraving as natural illustrations”.
