I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and have been a passionate shutterbug ever since. I can teach you how to use all of the manual features on your camera to get the effects you want to achieve, and I can help you to train your eye to see and capture memorable compositions.

Taking pictures is the first part of the journey - the second is editing them to adjust exposure, saturation, contrast, etc. I work with Photoshop and can teach you how to tune your images and fix problems like lens dust, harsh shadows, or face shine in flash pictures.

I encourage each student to find his or her personal style to express a unique vision. You don't need any experience to become an artist, just the desire to start noticing new things all around you and capturing moments to share with others!

I've taken two online photography lessons with Julie so far and I have learned more in those two lessons than in all the group online courses I have taken in the past. Julie explains things very well and is very willing to answer any questions I may have. I am excited to continue my lessons with her!
Alisa C.
Julie was a great instructor. Very patient and kind. Not only did she teach me about photography but my MAC also. Cant wait to book another session.

Julie was great. I really felt a connection with her as my instructor and look forward to our next lessons. Having had no photography experience I really feel she’s going to help me learn everything I need to know to really enjoy photography.

"I took two classes with Julie, business and digital photography. Both were very well prepared, planned out and taught. For each of the classes Julie prepared her own text books that outlined the curriculum and were very helpful for later reviews. In class she used slides with more information and examples of work, which were very helpful especially in the photography class. With her background in business and photography, we benefitted from her first hand experiences and recommendations regarding best photography equipment to invest in. Classes were not only informative but also fun and hands on. Her passion for photography is highly contagious ! I started from being intimidated by my camera but ended up enjoying and recognising the fun behind taking photos. I highly recommend Julie and hope to continue my own photography journey with her as my teacher."
