Julie Lee is a Central Florida part-time professional photographer. She has a broad knowledge of photographic styles from wide-angle landscapes and cityscapes to nature, abstract, portraiture and families. Always up for a challenge, macro and infrared photography are of particular interest as they involve unique ways of seeing a subject. As opposed to taking pictures OF a subject, she strives to capture thoughtful images that are ABOUT the subject while conveying what it felt like to be present at that moment via the use of creative techniques.

My interests vary between fine art urban and rural landscapes, botanicals, macro, and infrared photography.”
