Hi, I’m Julie

IT’S A PLEASURE TO MEET YOU! I will be your guide on this creative journey to stock photography. While I have been an artist my whole life, I began my journey as a photographer in 2012. Through hard work, perseverance and some good luck karma, I successfully learned to master stock photography.


If you are an artist first, a passionate person and new at the business of photography, I am here to help you.


I began just like you, doubting whether this was the right way to turn. Since I kicked doubt in the butt, I have travelled the world, learnt from others, and I now make a full-time passive income working part-time, when I want and where I want. I spend my life between my beautiful apartment in Montreal and taking pictures all over the globe, from the windswept shores of Cape Town to the trendy hotspots of Berlin.


I can help you follow a path of your own. Create success on your own term. Make your art your freedom.


Now, let me to show you the way!
