Julian Watt

Julian has won gold, silver and bronze at many international shows and was once selected as a finalist in thirty categories at one show! The international shows include Clio, Cannes, D&AD, London internationals, New York Festivals, Communication Arts, Adfest… that's just on the work that I've had the pleasure of producing with him. He's also an awesome smart, super talented image maker who gets it. I miss working with him, it's been too long. Since I moved from Asia to the states, we haven't had the opportunity for obvious reasons, but I look forward to the day where we can collaborate again!" - Craig Smith, Creative, New York.

Julian is an established, conceptual advertising photographer based in Sydney, Australia. Clients work with him because he’s versatile, a wizard with light, has never had to do a reshoot and always makes it look easy. He rolls with the punches and doesn’t get flustered. His productions are often large scale, but he also enjoys smaller, more flexible creative briefs.

Julian has a passion for sharing his knowledge and experience with students and has been authoring materials and teaching within the Australian VET sector for many years.

This has honestly been the best photography course I have taken to date. I have taken both online and in class courses in the past and nothing compares to this one. George's instructional text, is written in the perfect sequence to help all levels understand and learn photography concepts.
