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.

Sue…As a landscape and people photographer, i have always been curious about food and still life photography. Julie's website is simply beautiful that captures the light and the images looks peaceful, moody and romantic. I have gone to two of Julie's workshops and am halfway through her online courses. I highly recommend these. The workshops are fun and relaxing. Julie knows her subject matter and does not get too technical. I am grateful for Julies work as they have paved the way for my style and interest. So reader, have a look at Julie's classes and enjoy

Lisa…Julie, thank you for introducing me to this fabulous genre of photography. The 'For The Love Of Food' on-line course is fantastic. I love the challenges (my Sunday afternoons 'me time') that get me out of my comfort zone and thinking about different ways to photograph food. The 'bite-size' sessions are perfect, the information provided, tips, recipes and videos are inspiring and extremely helpful. This is one genre that I will happily continue on with.
