Film stills / BTS
I’ve worked on many sets but I’ve never met that professional and “invisible” photographer like Julia.
She was always at the right time and in the right place to capture the best moments of the particular scene, without disturbing the rest of the crew.
When I received the final stills there were no random takes. Every single photo faithfully reflected the emotions and meaning of the scene.
In addition, the atmosphere of the photos perfectly reflected the character of the film, which was a priority for me when it comes to film stills.
From now I can’t imagine being on a set without such a good photographer as Julia.
I met Julia for the first time on the set of a short film and I was impressed by her commitment,
and then the final result of the delivered photos.
So I didn’t hesitate to delegate Julia to work on my film.
During the studio session, Julia, as always, showed her professionalism, commitment and creativity, as the idea of my poster was a bit demanding and extraordinary.
Apart from the great job that Julia has done, she also provided advice when the situation required it and she created a friendly atmosphere in the studio, which my actors also confirmed!
I strongly recommend Julia for any kind of project.
“Impossible” does not exist for her.
Incredibly talented with a brilliant and generous work ethic
Julia was brought into shoot our pitch deck photos last minute after our initial photographer wasn’t able to make it. With little preparation time, Julia went to extreme efforts in order to understand our brief and communicate our ideas back to us in order to ensure she understood what we wanted. Without an assistant she worked tirelessly with a positive attitude all day, getting the most diverse and exceptional photographs for us. She remained generous in spirit, even snappy a few BTS shots and gifting them to us. Her post production skills are brilliant, she did some wonderful editing for us making the pictures the very best they could be. She is one of the most hard working people I have ever met, and we are so lucky we had the chance to work with her. If you hire Julia you are going to get exceptional quality – both in the product and the person.
Seamless creative concept realisation
Julia is an extremely talented photographer and also an excellent collaborator when it comes to realizing your creative brief. We worked with Julia on a photo shoot for a feature film pitch deck, and Julia was able quickly understand our needs and bring to life our ideas in a way that was even more than we had imagined ourselves. She was also super efficient in getting us the finished product. The whole process from booking to delivery saw seamless.
More than just a photographer…….a compassionate storyteller.
Julia has now worked on 5 short films for us and we will continue to contact her for future opportunities.
Why? Because Julia always goes beyond our expectations when it comes to her preparation and on set work ethic. Her curiosity coupled with her compassion towards the actor has revealed authentic photographic moments which we have used for our advertising, media pr and online promotions.
Julias has been a valuable contribution to our shoots and is now a key crew member whenever we shoot. If you want to achieve success I would highly recommend contacting Julia today.
