ABOUT | Who me?

I’m Julie but most of the time they call me “JAMZ”

I am an Olongapo-based female destination photographer specializing in romantic photography and event documentation. I do independent event and portrait shoots, fashion shoots, commercial advertising, babies/kids/family portraits, and travel photography when possible.  But lately I'm building my team who is in love & passionate about photography too. It's been my dream to teach people how to create vivid crafts.

Ex-basketball player who turned into photographer & entrepreneur.
I began teaching myself photography since 2008 after receiving some trials in my life. God gave me a new direction in life which is the art of capturing precious moments inside a little screen. I don't rush things, I love simple things, I love Japanese culture. I have mole on my face. I love weird things. I love natural lightning. I love sunsets. I always love to visualize something and I can't get the image out of my head 'till I photograph it. 

Sometimes, I enjoy spending my free time blogging and sharing snapshots and bits of my life with anyone who cares to look. I just want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares.  

For me "Photography is not just taking photos, It's about expressing your own emotion and revealing the inner beauty of 
the simple things in this world"
Well, this blog is my collection of my lost memories, random projects, work related stuff, photo dumps,  travel logs and random experiences in life through photographs.
