Julia Duresky Bon Vivant and Capehart Photographer since 1996
“I strive to bring joy to every room I enter, and improve the energy of whatever I’m shooting.”
Word on the Street When Julia arrives at a shoot there are three things on her mind – make the client’s experience personal, meaningful, and fun. “My first priority is the client. I can create a perfect technical photograph, but if my client isn’t comfortable and happy, it’s a wash. Whether it’s a chairperson not feeling quite right in the environment, a bad day, or a bride who needs a relaxing laugh. I tend to my clients needs first, then create beautiful photographs with them as a person, not a subject.”
Out and About She’s a sweetheart at every shoot, but don’t mess with her off the job. Julia is the Founder of Empower Together, an organization that plans women’s self-defense classes for the community, teaching awareness and real life defensive skills. She’s also a serious runner and lifelong sailor.
The Shot “This picture was taken for promotion for a dear friends fundraising event for Leukemia Lymphoma Society just after she won her battle against blood cancers. After years of running endurance races for LLS, it was shocking to have a friend suffering from blood cancers. I was proud of Capehart Photography’s support in this successful campaign and event.”
