Welcome to my website! My name is Julie O’Brien and I am a freelance photographer, film maker and visual artist based in Dublin.
I am a recent graduate from the National College of Art & Design where I was awarded a first class honours BA in Fine Art Printmaking and an award for my thesis on the topic of surveillance.
I am passionate about photography and have over 20 different cameras which all capture the world differently. I am a huge experimental film enthusiast and I love to make unique photographs using double exposures, cross processing, pre-exposed 35mm film, film soup (cooking a roll of film in soup / tea / liquids and then processing it). I love getting to know people before shoots and uniquely capturing their personalities.
I have experience in photographing fashion shoots, studio photography, product and jewellery, weddings, live events, graduation and family events. I also have 5 years experience photographing interiors of houses with Deck The Halls.
I have worked on photographs and videos with musicians including Synk, Munky, Versatile, Thumper, Jameso Lonergan and Coolio.
