My Creative Still Life Journey…

My Creative Still Life Journey (formerly My Sunday Stills) is currently still being run off my other website (it will not be moved until after the initial run through is complete), but it has also been moved over to my brand new Online Class Room. You can access from the button below, sign up and have a look around, truly amazing classroom and learning environment.

Lightroom 101

This is a FREE self help guide to using Adobe Lightroom, mostly created within My Sunday Stills Photography class. My hope for this class is to give you a little guidance on some tips and tricks in Lightroom, for the Beginners and for more experienced users. Starting with a brief look around.

This class offers a variety of food in natural light, learn to make the most of what you already have. Learn to work on the Stories within the photos and capture magic…

Create mouth watering images, that make your viewer crave your dish

Fruit and Flowers

Since days of old, artists have always loved to capture the beauty and grace of flowers and fruit in Still Life.

Learn styling, lighting and great ideas to breathe new life and new inspiration to your photographic stories.




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.
