JULIETTE SCOTT PHOTOGRAPHY, PERTH WA

How did you get started as a photographer?

Photography has always been a friend. Back in the days of film I spent many hours in photography darkrooms at high school then at art school doing a fine arts degree majoring in photography.

What did life look like before photography?

After art school I ending up in service management, completing a post graduate in business management. Later I then worked in logistics management. When I came back to photography, these skills and having a customer focus mindset were a great asset to my business.

Now I specialise in portrait photography- people and pets! Family photography, headshots and personal branding, children and all the milestones of family life.

As a mum, I adore little people and I appreciate every age and stage. For every shoot I think about the age of each little one and how I can help them to forget about the camera.

Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …

First I respond to enquiries, then I prepare for shoots in my North Perth studio or outdoors, ensuring I know the customers wants, checking batteries are charged, equipment is ready and lights are tested!

When I’m not shooting I edit sessions. However, I constantly lose myself in editing, and the art of making portraits, so I have to schedule blocks of time for marketing, accounting and business development so those important jobs get done too.

Any memorable moments or stories?

Sad story but very important, sorry!

When my father died I had a role of undeveloped film in my camera. When I developed it there was a beautiful image of my mum and dad, laughing and holding hands. This photo has lived beside my mums bed for many years now and it always reminds me how important family photos are. I especially love photographing grandparents with their family.

If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

What is the best thing about your job?

It never feels like work. It’s a joy everyday.

If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?

I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing for work.

Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?

Definitely more lenses and the latest camera body.

If you could photograph someone famous, who would it be and why?

Annie Leibovitz.
