About Me - Julia Burke

Let me Introduce Myself

Hi there I'm Julia, I'm a small town girl from Cape Breton NS. I'm fueled by a mixture of coffee and salty ocean air. I'm an old soul who loves exploring the beautiful area I call home. When I'm not out exploring I'm often curled up watching Netflix, reading, or playing The Sims. I love spending time with friends and family too,  especially if we're sitting around a bonfire or playing board games.    

 The Road to Photography

When I graduated from pre-school I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, at the time I copied  my sister and said I wanted to be a teacher. That lasted for a little while, until I decided I wanted to be an interior designer, and then I thought I wanted to be a fashion designer (So many notebooks and binders filled with clothing related doodles). It wasn't until my Mom mentioned to me that photography was my only hobby that 'stuck' that I really considered it as a career option. At that point I'd had camera in hand for two-ish years. 

After high school I went on to study photography at Centre for Arts and Technology in Halifax. The digital photography program was a two year course done in twelve months, and it was twelve months of awesomeness! I met so many amazing people through C.A.T, and I was presented with so many opportunities to go out and work and put the skills I was learning to the test. At graduation from Centre for Arts I was awarded with the IDEALS award for the photography class as well as my diploma in Digital Photography.
