Architect with a Master degree, multi award-winning black and white fine art photographer with high distinctions in the most important photography competitions worldwide, highly sought after educator and writer, Julia lives in Athens and is mostly known for her black and white long exposure architectural photography, which sows her signature style and expresses her artistic sensibility.
Author of the best-selling book "FROM BASICS TO FINE ART - B&W Photography" http://sites.fastspring.com/juliaannagospodarou/product/frombasicstofineart, written with co-author Joel Tjintjelaar, the book is considered by many critics one of the best books on B&W photography of the past decades.
Julia has created a theoretical background to define her photography and fine art photography in general, of which the term (en)Visionography™ - www.envisionography.com is the keystone.(en)Visionography is a new name for photography that aims to define photography in the digital era in a better way than the traditional name “photography” and it has behind it a theory saying that fine art photography is mainly the product of the vision of the artist and it is not so much subject or camera dependent. This theory reflects also in her personal creative and processing method “Photography Drawing (PhD™)”, method based on how light interacts with volumes and how this can be translated in an image by using the principles of classical B&W drawing in pencil, applied to B&W photography.
Julia always loved sharing her knowledge with others; this is why she teaches photography workshops worldwide and mentors students online. Her professional activities include working on commissioned photography projects.
Published internationally in numerous books and magazines, Julia's photographic work can be seen online in the most important photography galleries and in private collections worldwide.
