Julia’s Bio

JULIA ANNA GOSPODAROU Landscape and Architetural PhotographerArchitect with a Master degree and Internationally award-winning B&W Fine Art photographer (en)Visionographer, multiple times awarded with high distinctions in the most important photography competitions worldwide (SWPA, IPA, PX3, IFPA, B&W Spider Awards, ND Awards – 1st, 2nd, 3rd awards and other distinctions), Julia lives in Athens and is mostly known for her B&W long exposure architectural photography, which is her signature style and also the genre that speaks most to her artistic sensibility.

She is the author of the best selling book “FROM BASICS TO FINE ART – B&W Photography”, written together with Joel Tjintjelaar, book considered by many critics the best book on B&W photography of the past decades.

She has created the term “(en)Visionography™” – , to define her style of photography and to refer to fine art digital photography in general. The term (en)Visionography is a new name for photography that aims to define better photography in the digital era than the traditional name “photography” would define it – and has behind it a theory saying that fine art photography has to do much more with the vision of the artist than with the subject or how the camera captures it, (en)Visionography being the direct product of the artist’s personal style. This theory reflects also in her personal creative and processing method called “Photography Drawing (PhD™)”, method based on how light interacts with volumes and how this can be translated in an image by using the principles of classical B&W drawing in pencil, applied to B&W photography.

Her professional activities also include creating fine art photography tutorials (vision, processing etc.), teaching photography workshops worldwide, for groups or private, mentoring students online and working on commissioned photography projects.

Published internationally in numerous books and magazines, Julia’s photographic work can also be seen online in the most important photography galleries.

Spotlight Day: 1,

Several months ago PI Photography and Fine Art rolled out with a new series of blog posts called Photographer in the Spotlight. For a full week we will showcase the bio, artist statement and seven images of a selected landscape and nature photographer’s work that we found most interesting. Our hope is that our audience not only sees the beautiful work created by these passionate photographers but also learn a little about the artists behind the pieces. There are so many wonderful photographers in the world and a lot of the time we only see the photograph, not the artist.  So we thought it would be nice to show appreciation for the artist, for their dedication to their field, and share some of their work along the way.

Think about it, if it wasn’t for the artist then there would be no art to admire and honestly, life would be pretty boring without it! So show your appreciation to them for spicing up your life and showing you their beautiful perception of the world. Share their stories and captivating work for others to experience.

If you would like to be showcased or know a landscape or nature photographer who should be, please submit the info through our contact us page: Photographer in the Spotlight Submissions
