Hey Guys! Ok here’s a little about me, My name is Julian Valencia and I’m a HUGE Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. Hopefully you, your fiancé and I can bond over beer and watch the game at your favorite local bar. As you can see, photography is a huge passion of mine.
I began capturing images many years ago on a high school internship in New York. During my college years I felt my life needed a change and I ended up joining the MARINES. I did the G.I. Joe thing for a few years, traveled the world and now I call Tampa Bay home.
Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. Even with it’s ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can’t wait to create images to show that! If you’re interested in learning more contact me below and lets grab some coffee or even better some pizza!
If you're reading this, then that means something about my photography has caught your interest. You may have noticed that I'm not like other photographers. I do things differently. For example, I don't talk about myself in third person on my website. For one, it's awkward to write like that. And even more importantly, my work is about connection and I don't want to start this whole process by creating an artificial distance from you just to make myself sound more important.
On this page you will find more information about my process and how to take the next steps.
My work is primarily documentary, although certain parts of the day need an editorial approach, and at other points in the day it is best to use my landscape or contemporary portraiture expertise. At all times, I strive to remain unobtrusive, flexible, and open to creative opportunities as they appear.
The most important thing I can provide for you is an amazing experience. But after the music ends and the day has passed, my real work begins. All photos are professionally edited, color and exposure corrected, and polished for delivery. You will receive all edited digital images with a personal use copyright release.
It is my core belief that a photo is not finished until it is printed. Every photo in your collection will be edited with continuity in mind with the hope that you will one day include your favorites in an album. I design each album individually and they are sent to print to a trusted printing service.
