Hi, I’m Julia, a Liverpool-based documentary photographer with a love for street photography, heritage and culture.

In fact, one of my favourite things is street-style photography of people at heritage sites, museums and cultural events.

Call it street-heritage photography, if you will. Or ‘streritage’ photography, perhaps 🙂

So, if you like street photography or a bit of heritage and culture, please have a browse using the menu on the left. If you’re looking to collaborate on a project and like what you see, please drop me a line via my contact page or email me at:

Visiting the Roman Baths: the good and the bad

The Roman Baths is the jewel in the crown of the city of Bath. Built on geothermal underground springs, the baths are filled with water that comes out of the ground at 46°C,

Street photography on a rainy day at Liverpool One

I do love spending a bit of time wandering, documenting life around me. There are so many ways in which people and places can be interesting, and different ways in which I, as a photographer, can capture life.

I like going out in different weather conditions and times of year to see how places change. I also use different lenses, such as my wide-angle lens – where you have to get close to your subject – and my trusty 35 mm (53 mm equivalent). This makes me think more carefully about how I go about using the camera, as well as making me use my legs, too.

One lens I hadn’t taken out around the street, however, is my 50 mm (75 mm equivalent) macro lens. I was interested to see how it fared being put to use out and about, rather than on a tripod, up close-and-personal with small things.
