It is often said that a great model makes for a great photographer, and this is no more the case than with Julie Healy. Australian born and bred, Healy came to prominence in 1996, emerging as a favorite with Australia’s leading designers and appearing in the pages of top titles including Vogue Australia and Harpers Bazaar before hitting the international circuit, the premier fashion capitals of New York, Milan, Paris and London. With a work life spent largely in front of stills and motion cameras she explored the realms of photography when film was still the norm. Testing eventually gave way to more stylized set ups with Healy feeling at home in the world of "shadow and light", of “capturing and transforming the moment” and “working the pose”. Not surprisingly it is the masters of photography’s chiaroscuro effects who most inspire her…Richard Avedon, Lillian Bassman, Nick Knight and Paulo Roversi to name a few. Influenced by the world of cinema, Julie’s photographs evoke a sense of magic and drama. “From a young age I was obsessed with Alfred Hitchcock’s, Rebecca. The mood created by photography and lighting awakened and moved me. Before I even understood there were such specialists who created the mesmerizing effects, and the acute craft behind it, I knew this was my world."
With more than 25 years experience in the film and fashion industry working with many of the world’s leading artists Julie is now living her dream life as a Director and Photographer. Passionate about beauty and fashion, exploring the magic of still and motion formats, Julie loves shooting portraits and collaborating with creative’s to make their dream concept a visual reality.
