 A bit about us:

Artistic Director & Photographer Julie Ewing, Master Photog. II and Licentiate of the AIPP, Julie also has an Associate Diploma in Photography. She is a mother of 2 awesome, highly photographed kids, Henry and Amelia and has won a tally of over 60 Silver photography awards in the past 20+ years. Many include Silver with Distinction and Gold awards of excellence at the AIPP Photography awards, including VIC State category wins. She judges both State and National events and has been involved in mentoring and sub-committees of the AIPP. Julie also is the owner and director of  Lifeworks Photography since 1993, and has been a guest speaker in the UK, Norway and around Australia. She has photographed thousands of families during this time. Many of whom are more like friends and visit the Studio on a regular basis for family updates and jump at the chance to be included in our “Best Friends” Book…. after-all, Pets are family!  In her spare time, Julie loves cycling, the gym (was that love…or hate), catching up with friends and fun travelling adventures with her family.

Tracy Macaskill, has an Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging. Tracy is originally from New Zealand and grew up surrounded by numerous animals. She loves all types of animals (snakes not so much) and finds ways of provoking their personalities to shine for the camera. Even if this means getting dirty and slobbered on during a shoot. Tracy also loves making kids laugh. When we are not photographing Tracy is busy working on all your gorgeous prints in production and putting our ideas into cool design layouts.

As an ongoing commitment to excellence, we participate in photographic workshops and seminars regularly to keep our skills and minds fresh.
