Julie Collins has loved the camera since she was a child, running around with a film camera in her hand. Although Year 12 Photography was her favorite subject, it did not occur to her to take it up as a profession until twenty odd years later. Her first real job was as a schoolteacher, and while she loved the children and her colleagues, she decided a change was in order.
In 2010, Julie Collins proudly accepted the Silver Award for a wedding image submitted to the Australian Institute of Professional Photography. She hopes to enter more in the future.
Almost a decade of experience has taught Julie Collins that it is incredibly important to create a connection wither her clients, as this brings out the best of them during the photography session. Being photographed can be a daunting experience for many people, therefore she seeks to build a rapport with the client before the photo session so that they feel relaxed, comfortable, and enjoy the session. That can be the difference between a photo being ordinary, and extraordinary.
Julie Collins is one with her cameras. She knows how they work to get the best results. She then employs Photoshop and Lightroom to give her images that ‘wow’ factor. Rather than stand there and fiddle with her camera, Julie tends to focus on capturing things as they unfold so as not to miss special moments.
Julie is based in Brisbane, however she is available worldwide, she is creative, spontaneous and sometimes quirky in her style, yet at the same time catering to each of her client’s needs.
