Today we’d like to introduce you to Julia Peltier.
Julia, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve always had a passion for photography, but I didn’t really get into it until 2014 when I graduated college. I got my Nikon D700 and went crazy. I started doing shoots with my friends in Washington DC and in my home town of Roanoke, VA. I love to pick a neighborhood and explore. I moved to Los Angeles in 2016 and have been doing shoots professionally and for fun ever since. Humans and cats are my favorite subjects and fortunately this city is full of them.
Has it been a smooth road?
I’ve definitely run into some troubles figuring out how to get my work out there. Honestly, I’m still figuring that out. I just know I love what I do and I want to share it with the world.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with J. Peltier Photography – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I am a photographer who specializes in headshot and lifestyle shoots. I think what makes me unique is the spontaneity of my work style. I’ll sometimes have a vision before a shoot, but most of the time I like to get to know my subject and explore the area without inhibitions. It’s fun and adventurous and I guarantee amazing photos. A lot of people tell me they aren’t photogenic or they are uncomfortable in front of the camera, but I tell them none of that matters. I’ll take care of everything.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love the number of unique neighborhoods. It would take years to fully appreciate all of them. The energy of LA is by far my favorite thing. When I first visited, I could feel it the moment I stepped off the plane. This is a city buzzing with creativity and people wanting to collaborate and make art. It’s beautiful.
As I’m sure most Angeleans would agree, the city’s traffic is by far its worst attribute.
