“I enjoy studying a scene to see what is constant and what is changing (light, water, wind, people). I then strive to create that feeling in a photograph so the viewer gets a sense of what it was like to be present in that moment. My interests vary between fine art urban and rural landscapes, macro and infrared photography.”
Julie Lee is a Central Florida part-time professional photographer. What started as organizing a group of friends for photo excursions led to joining the Orlando Camera Club and organizing field trips. In 2018, she will be co-leading several photo tours with Wayne Bennett Photography.
Julie has a broad knowledge of photographic styles from wide angle landscapes and cityscapes to nature, abstract, portraiture and families. Always up for a challenge, macro and infrared photography are of particular interest as they involve different ways of seeing your subject. As opposed to taking pictures OF a subject, she strives to create thoughtful images that are ABOUT the subject while conveying what it felt like to be present in the moment of capture via the use of creative technique.
Julie is starting her third year of leading field trips for the Orlando Camera Club and recently finished a term as OCC’s 13th President. She continues to serve on the Board of Directors guiding the club towards its vision of educating members in various forms of photography. She places often in their monthly competitions and has earned several awards in Annual Competitions including first places in Monochrome and Color Advanced for 2017.
In the last year, Julie has offloaded her heavy DSLR gear and embraced the Fuji X mirrorless system for its quality and lighter weight. She feels that being able to shoot from early morning until sunset and beyond is important for a busy photographer.
Julie’s work is hung in private home collections, commercial installations, and has been featured at the following public locations:
127 SOBO Gallery (Winter Garden, FL), monthly exhibitions 2013-present
The Orlando Mayor's 3rd Floor Gallery at Orlando City Hall, August 2015, 'Insight' Exhibition
Aloft Orlando Downtown (Orlando, FL) May-June 2015, 'Insight' Exhibition
Jai Gallery (Orlando, FL), 'Insight' a juried Photographic Exhibition by The Orlando Camera Club,
She is available for private or small group instruction for landscape, macro and infrared photography in addition to post-processing techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop.
