Workshops 2019

The art of Still Life and styling starts long before we press that shutter button…learn the secrets of what to do; during the gather, the shoot and the edit, with in depth lessons and loads of inspiration. My aim is to provide you with the most creative ideas and workshops to help you take you further on your photography journey. I love to help people in their artistic efforts, creating a positive and encouraging environment for you to continue your growth.

I run full and half day workshops, both in my home studio in Narre Warren and where larger crowds demand in an off site studio in Dandenong & am looking at other venues for 2019 as well. Workshops are kept small and hands on usually with a Minimum of 6 clients and no more than 12. Larger group bookings can be arranged on request. 

I will start running workshops in Mid - to Late March 2019, so please book mark this page or if you would like to be placed on my VIP mailing list to hear about and to book-in to upcoming workshops before they go public (They usually sell out fast), by emailing me on the link below.

I’ve done a Dark and Moody still life course with Julie and it was awesome. Small sized group and excellent props and advice. I was a bit nervous about attending but Julie is welcoming and very professional. I learnt so much, cannot wait until I can do another one. Highly recommend.

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning, exploring and challenging myself with 'still life' photography. It is something I had dabbled in a little bit during 2018 and before starting the 12 week course.

The weekly challenges have been fantastic and seeing other's interpretation of each theme has provided me with a lot of inspiration.

Thank you for providing me with this awesome opportunity, your videos and guidance has been very valuable, and I really look forward to seeing what you bring next year.

For me, learning something completely new, I really love seeing how the images are treated in the editing software. Because you can take a good photograph to great or vice versa with how it is edited.
Always happy to get freebies tho! But being a visual learner, the layout and manor the course is delivered in, also helps. And your courses, both I'm doing, have beautiful pictures, clear instruction and are visual feast for the eyes. I can tell you have put a lot of work into it, it really does show. Its apparent right throughout your classes AND your website.
