About Julia Pelish

As a professional photographer, I thrive to provide art and joy to my customers and my community. I picked up a camera more than 15 years ago and enjoyed taking pictures so much I never stopped.

I gained a Fine Arts degree in Photography from the State University of New York and also attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City to add digital design skills that allow me to enhance my photographs.

I have also had the benefit of working in one of the largest media markets in the world, helping a team of reporters, photographers and editors cover major news events. My work has been featured in the "Toronto Star" and "New York Newsday". I have exhibited in New York, Toronto and Vancouver, and my affiliations include memberships with the Professional Photographers Association and Gallery 44 in Toronto. My photo jewelry can be purchased at the Arts on King and Arts on Queen in Toronto.

To me, a photograph represents an emotional, visual snippet of our harried lives. When interwoven, color, subject matter, light, action and mood can create new realities and possibilities. This duality - both interpretive and honest - allows photographs to rise to art, to impact our lives and memories. For this reason, and many others, photographs fascinate me.

I have focused on delivering a superior photographic experience to my customers, including wedding, portrait and corporate clients. As photography and technology evolves, I strive to evolve, too. With new imaging techniques and products, I feel every photograph now has the opportunity to truly be elevated to the quality of fine art.

I appreciate the time you have taken to visit my gallery and information websites, and I look forward to working with you to create lasting memories for you and those most dear to you.

Please feel free to call or e-mail me to discuss your photography needs.
