Having first picked up a camera when she was just 13-years-old, Julie Adams is now one of Australia’s leading fashion and portraiture photographers. She studied photography in Florence and her career has taken her all over the world from Africa to Italy. Adams spent many years working in New York and London before returning to Australia with her family.
Her first assignment was for the fashion pages of The Independent and she has since worked for prestigious publications such as VOGUE, Harper’s BAZAAR, Glamour, Marie Claire and more. Adams has photographed amongst others Rebel Wilson, Joel Edgerton, Tim Minchin, Miranda Kerr, Rosita Missoni, Sofia Loren and Luca Zingaretti.
Back in 2009, Adams held her first portrait exhibition ‘The Beauty of Italian Women’, inspired by her love of Italy.
“My approach to portraiture is always to get to know a little about the person I’m shooting as soon as I arrive and make them feel comfortable. When people are at ease, you can really capture something special. With fashion I love the collaboration aspect. I love bringing creative teams together and watching an idea evolve. Pure magic for me is when I have the opportunity to combine portraiture with fashion."
