In this episode of hit The Streets, Valerie invited Seattle based photographer David Julian back on the show. You may remember our conversation on HTS 54 about photographing Burning Man. This week, David talks about ways to handle cultural barriers and avoid faux-pas when photographing the streets of the world. Enjoy!
I'm a photographer, illustrator, educator and speaker based in Seattle. Thirty years ago, I never set out to be a photographer, preferring to reserve image making for personal expression and explorations. After years of corporate work, I now divide my time between editorial assignments, cultural travel workshops, personal projects, and education. I discovered my passion for teaching and guiding in 2001, and now lead workshops for Maine Media Workshops, The Santa Fe Workshops, Anderson Ranch Arts Center and Un-Cruise, and private cultural tours in Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, Canada, Europe, Cuba and recently India.
Over the years my work and interviews have appeared in Communication Arts, PRINT, NY Times, LA Times, Islands, Outside, National Geographic Traveler, Audubon, Rangefinder, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photo Pro, Fujilove, and in other arts media. I am a Fuji-X Delegate photographer and enjoy helping others develop vision and skills to reach their creative goals. I continue developing new projects and tours, and invite connections with like-minded photo adventurers across the planet.
I’m leading “Beyond Lucky: The Art of Intentional Travel and Street Photography" workshop in July at Maine Media Workshops, “Culture and Light in Sri Lanka” in November and “The Art and Soul of Eastern Cuba” in December.
On my first trip to India, I arrived without expectations; only curiosity and intentions. As I journeyed throughout Rajasthan and Varanasi, I discovered a generosity of spirit and daily surprises that I will never forget. My goal, as always, is to convey that feeling of discovery in my photographs.
