Hey! I’m Julian

When it comes to writing an about section I always freeze up. I don’t want to give you the whole “as long as I can remember I’ve always had an interest in photography” spiel or wax lyrical about how much photography means to me.

To be perfectly honest, I don’t really know what it means to me. Photography has given me a way to connect with people I don’t think I could achieve otherwise. Despite some extroverted tendencies, I find myself being far more introverted than I’d like to think, so being able to materialise the way I see things and share that with others is a great feeling.

So far photography has connected me with some of the kindest, most interesting people I’ve had the please of knowing. So if creating bold and colourful imagery, presented in a fashionable and contemporary way can allow me to keep meeting new people, I’d like to do that as long as possible.

Julian was efficient, eager, friendly, creative and above all produced exceptional work. He was open to all ideas and used his own initiative. His photography is incredible for a start-up. Bloc and Restless Natives have been really lucky to have him and we will have no qualms about contacting him to work with us in the future.
