Julien Star – 30 years in the industry

Julien’s passion for photography started at an early age when a family friend and photographer returned from an assignment in Brazil and invited him to a slide night. At 12 years old Julien bought an old 35mm Russian camera and was later given some black + white darkroom equipment - he spent endless hours in the loft mastering the techniques of black + white photography.

This inspired Julien to study photography at school and at the same time attending evening classes at the local Tafe. After finishing school he then pursued further studies and completed his diploma in ‘photography and TV communications’ whilst studying to advanced levels he worked as a studio assistant for a fashion photographer then full time commercial photographer in London gaining valuable skills and experience in the corporate and commercial industry.

Julien was then lucky enough to travel the world working as an international cruise ship photographer where he progressed quickly to photographic manager/technical advisor/photographic trainer enjoying his work and the adventure it gave him. After taking a years ‘sabbatical’ to sail across the pacific in his 30ft yacht, and pursue his desire for travel, Julien then returned to London where he was engaged as Photographic Concessionaire Manager for Cunard Lines.

In 1996, Julien settles in Brisbane with his wife and was employed as Regional Manager with the Australian division of an International Event Photography Company followed by a contract as Architectural Photographer/Audio Visual Presenter for a Gold Coast based Productions Company.

Since the beginning of the new millennium Julien has been freelancing to a wide variety of corporate, commercial and domestic clients, running his own boutique studio and gallery.

Most of Julien’s clientele to date are through recommendations from happy and satisfied customers.
