Julia Cameron

Julia has taken photographs all her adult life and started working as a full-time photographer after a 34-year career in education as a teacher and a lecturer in Art and Design in Surrey and finally as a lecturer in Education Studies at City College, Norwich.

Perhaps some nominative determinism came to play as she shares her name with the very eminent Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, also an older woman when she began her photographic career.
