Julie Powell Photography

I am a Still Life Photographer.

Sounds like something from an AA Meeting doesn’t it? But it IS an obsession and kind of like an addiction. The feeling I get from creating an amazing image, or even better, from helping someone else create their own amazing image, when they thought they couldn’t; there’s nothing better…such a buzz! But beware…I am a bit of a dag and rarely take myself seriously. Life is meant to be enjoyed…so have fun!

I think I have tried just about everything…

That’s what we all do when we start out isn’t it? Try everything, well at least I did. But, after a while I decided what I love (still life, macro, florals, food & portraits - yay!) and what I don’t (weddings, sport and birds in flight - yuk!). I think you have to try many different styles and genres of photography, to find what you are passionate about. When I first started out, my images sucked big time - I couldn’t figure out my ISO from my F/stop, my images were flat, uninteresting and well…boring! I was so frustrated, there had to be an easier way.

I spent years studying the Masters, lighting, staging and styling, pouring over so many beautiful images online and in magazines. Eventually one a-ha moment after another it all started to come together. People started asking me to show them how I created my beautiful photos and I started running small classes and workshops out of my home studio. These quickly lead into larger classes offering more and varied subjects.
