Hello, my name is Julian Newman Turner.
Photography, for me, is very much an art form like a painting or a sculpture. Good photography is all about light and composition. Without light you have no picture and without composition you have a mere snapshot.
I've been taking photographs professionally for over 15 years but have also worked in 'visual arts' for over 25 years. I've worked as an actor and, more importantly, a director, and directing is very much about having a vision. The importance of understanding composition when staging a theatre production, as well as a knowledge of lighting to create atmosphere and visually interesting scenes, has been hugely valuable to me as a photographer and film maker.
I also believe that one of the secrets to a good portrait or wedding shoot is the photographers ability to make his subject feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera; to get the right 'performance' from his subjects based on the style required, and I feel my background has helped me enormously in developing these skills.
So, take a look at my photographs. If you like them then get in touch and I’d be more than happy to meet up and have a chat.
