Let's get to know one of our speakers who will be at Imaging USA in Nashville, Tennessee. JulieAnne Jonker has her master of photography and photographic craftsman degrees from PPA and is also a certified professional photographer (CPP). In the following interview, she sheds some light on her career as a photographer.
Who's your class for?
Any photographer, really. It's about inspiration as much as what it takes to get your photography studio to the next level. I'll help you direct your business based on your definition of yourself as an artist
What are the top 3 takeaways from your class?
At the end of my class, you will be able to understand 3 things:
1. Who you are as an artist
2. What direction you want to take your studio in 2015
3. How you can operate a low-volume, high-end studio in this economy
Define your style as a photographer in 5 words.
My style reflected in my photography is vintage, ethereal, classical, compelling and timeless.
What makes your portrait style so unique?
The influences that I continually derive from the fine art world shine through my work and define my photography style.
What is your favorite medium of expression besides photography?
Outside photography, there are two outlets I use to express myself: painting and sculpting.
What was your proudest photographic moment?
Being invited and voted into the Camera Craftsmen of America has to be my proudest moment as a photographer.
What is one marketing mistake many photographers make when they are first starting out?
Inexperienced photographers tend to compete on price, and price only, to get their foot in the door, but that presents them as cheap studios with too many sales and specials.
What do you want to be known for?
As an artist I'd like to be known for creating timeless pieces.
Elvis, Johnny Cash, or Jack White?
Definitely, Jimi Hendrix.
JulieAnne has had a long streak of success. Learn from her at Imaging USA in Nashville! You'll have two opportunities to hear her speak: on the business panel "5 Golden Nuggets" and in her solo-class called "The Portrait as an Art Form".
