“I believe Julia is one the best fine art photographers in the world. I fell in love with her work as soon as I discovered it many months ago. My appreciation for it only deepens with every new photograph she shares. She is tremendously talented and shows a very unique vision that allows her to keep reinventing herself and the world through her photography. This is probably the hardest thing to achieve for an artist but she excels in it. Apart from the obvious estheticism and incredible atmospheres she creates, the most interesting aspect of her work to me is her skills of using light to create volumes and presence. I am convinced her being an architect is no stranger to that, and she behaves just like a sketch artist or a painter by using a photograph as a canvas. This explains why one always marvels at her natural sense of beauty, composition and lighting. It is not a surprise she was praised and awarded by the best fine art magazines, photographers and international competitions in the world. And they will keep coming.
But I consider myself lucky because I actually met her in person during one of the workshops she organized in the US. Not only she is passionate about her photography, the nicest person and a lot of fun to shoot with, it is obvious she really enjoys interacting with and mentoring other photographers. She is sincerely interested in your work and in helping you define your own style in order to help you grow as an independent fine art photographer, without trying to push you one way or another. She does not hesitate to share her thoughts and vision about art, what makes an artist, and how to become one. She explains in details how to approach a subject, what she thinks makes a picture or specific composition interesting, and how to create presence. On the technical side, she is also more than happy to show pictures before and after processing, and share valuable information about post-processing techniques.
In a word, this was an incredible experience and probably the best investment in my career as a fine art photographer. I could never have learned so much without meeting her in person and would do it again in a heartbeat. Her workshops and other mentoring programs are designed to make you grow as an independent fine art photographer and I highly recommend them for artists looking for a boost in their career.”
