Originally from the United States, Julie grew up near Boston, MA and relocated to Sydney in 2006 for two years. During this time she focused on seeing as much of Australia & New Zealand as possible, not knowing when they would be back again. Dinner under the stars at Uluru (Ayers Rock), snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef or seeing the sights of Milford Sound, each location was so unique and incredible. This is when her love for travel & photography began.
After moving back to the states in 2008 for a few years, she returned to Australia and is currently based in Sydney. Julie is an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). Specializing in Landscape & Travel, her collection features images from around the world. She has earned both national & international awards, with her most recent images titled Stairway to Nowhere and Quest receiving 3rd and 5th Place respectively in the Isolation category for the AIPP Silver Lining Awards 2020. As a finalist, the images were featured online in National Geographic Espana and her 3rd Place image was featured online in Capture Magazine with the top three images in each category.
Photography has been a creative outlet for Julie. Landscape photography brings a sense of calm and appreciation for life when capturing the beauty of nature. There is an indescribable connection when shooting a location and Julie strives to convey this sense of place in each image. Featured in the gallery is her most recent work, the beautiful sights of Bolivia, the Arctic Circle in Finland/Norway & Atacama Desert, Chile.
Hope you enjoy!
