Photographer Julie Cochran will be exhibiting a variety of fine art images in her gallery opening on the 12th.

A sampling of images from the show!

Julie is a native to the Washington Metro area. After graduating Robinson High School in 1981, she attended Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) and graduated in 1987 with an Associate’s degree in early childhood education.

In 1993, she took her first photography class at NOVA using her husband’s Pentax K1000 camera. Since then she has taken many more photography and photography-related classes like developing and printing as well as digital imaging. Julie has participated in workshops offered by Blue Ridge Workshops led by Elliot Stern, and those at Meadowlark Gardens given by Jack Nevitt, Cory Hilz and William Folsom. Julie is also a member of Vienna Photographic Society and Vienna Arts Society.

In her Penn Camera Gallery Exhibition, Julie is presenting a body of work entitled “From the Ground Up”. All images were taken with a Minolta 5d and a Nikon D40dx. The pictures in this show are a product of above mentioned workshops and other photographic excursions.

“My favorite subject is nature, in all its forms. From a butterfly on a flower, to a sunset framed by mountains. There are, however, subjects nature cannot produce. Like two planes passing so close together you’d think they touched. Although not shown here, I also enjoy photographing animals of all shapes and sizes, from horses to cats, to snakes.”

SPECIAL NOTE: For each picture purchased there will be a 5% donation made to the Red Cross to help fund the relief effort in Haiti.
