About Julia Nance

Corporate Headshot Photography Melbourne - Melbourne Corporate Headshots - Professional Linkedin Headshots - Personal Branding Photography

I’m Julia, a qualified photographer with a passion for creativity. I started Julia Nance Portraits to follow my love of photographing people, to create powerful and creative portraits, and to capture headshots with personality and vibrance.

As a professional portrait photographer, I am down to earth, patient, and thorough. I prefer to take more photographs, spend more time, and explore more options than rush though your session. My portraiture studio is based in beautiful Lilydale, Victoria. It overlooks the Dandenong Ranges and is surrounded by nature, which is a constant source of inspiration. With 10 acres of bushland and paddocks, it is here that I fell in love with nature, light, and colour.

Other than portraiture, I follow other passions of travel, underwater photography, conceptual photography and creative arts. I have had incredible opportunities to photograph whales underwater, pursue ceramics, and spend five months travelling across Europe.

Get in touch about your next project. Every portrait says something, so let’s create your professional image!

Had the privilege of having my portrait taken by Julia. She has a fantastic studio that's recently been done up in Lilydale which was a great space to get creative in - I love bright colours, and enjoyed playing around with her various backdrops. Julia was a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to my next session!
