Julie Skelton is a Surrey-based, full-time professional photographer, passionate about photographing the outdoor life - both in the tiniest plant details as well as the larger landscape. She enjoys using visual storytelling to communicate the human element of gardeners at work - a year-long project in all seasons and weathers, following the work of a local vineyard and walled manor gardens, being a recent example. A particular field of interest is farming/growing and land management, following the farm-to-table story of local businesses' produce. Her evocative images concentrate on contrasts of texture, colour and form, with an emphasis on finding the light. She comes from a teaching and training background. Julie's own clay-soil garden in Guildford produces fantastic rhubarb, amongst other things, but continues to lose the battle with slugs and snails.
In her spare time, Julie enjoys music, hill walking, and an ongoing search for the best tea & cake in the UK.
