Hello and welcome to my website.
Julie Wilson Equestrian Photography was established in 1994. Since that date Anna Sharpley (Journalist) and Julie Wilson (photographer) have traveled the World. We have attended the Atlanta, Sydney, Hong Kong and London Olympic Games and the World Championships in Rome, Spain, Germany, Kentucky USA and France. Our work appears in every major Australian horse magazine, as well as prestigious international publications, such as Horse International. Anna and I supply the majority of the editorial work for Australia’s most popular equestrian Magazine and website, Horse Deals. We also cover events around Australia providing proof photos that competitors can purchase.
I live and work from my home in Warburton, a small township about one hour’s drive from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Warburton is a rural area specializing in tourism; it is a beautiful place with the Yarra River running through the centre of town. I live on a small property with two poodles Vinnie and Alice plus cat Lola and various native animals who come and go as they please.
My involvement with horses began at an early age when I would gallop bareback on my ponies around the countryside, suffering the occasional tumble on the way. I am now a qualified NCAS Level 1 equestrian coach and have competed successfully in all equestrian disciplines. My experience with horses and all equestrian sport, combined with my skill as a photographer has placed me at the forefront of Australian equestrian photo journalism.
My interest in photography began while I was doing an Arts course in 6th form at school. After completing my nursing qualifications I then obtained my first job in the photographic industry, taking photos of houses. During this employment I also learnt about photographing weddings, studio portraits and framing. This is where the Wixmore company was formed, specializing in horse photography. This experience gave me a wonderful grounding for running my own business.
In 2017 I started a new business to run along side the equestrian photography, Chiron Photography Studio. Chrion Studio is a small purpose built photographic studio specialising in pet images in Warburton located in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, 1 ½ hours from Melbourne. With limitations to obtain the best images possible using natural light and outdoor locations i offer pet owners the opportunity to have their small animals photographed in a professional and safe environment, to produce images that capture the animal’s personality at realistic prices.
I look forward to receiving your e-mails and I hope you enjoy my site.
