Hi, I’m Julie!
Hi, I’m Julie!
I’m originally from Salisbury, NC, but have lived in the Myrtle Beach area since elementary school. My love of photography began at age seven when I received a Keystone 110 camera for my birthday.
After earning a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of South Carolina, I continued on in photography in the corporate world with a 10 year run at the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, where I also worked in PR, marketing, graphic design and web design. I then became a full-time freelance artist, began photographing real estate photography, and have been doing so since 2006, specializing in beach vacation real estate photography.
Splash Studio is a local, woman-owned, small business and can help your listing or property stand out above the rest, bringing in more potential renters and buyers. I take pride in my love for community and through my volunteer efforts, I was the 2017 Coastal Samaritan Ethics in Business Individual Award winner. I’m a long-time volunteer and photographer for the North Myrtle Beach Sea Turtle Patrol, and am on the board of directors for Caring In Our Lifetime, the local fight against breast cancer.
Fun Facts About Me:
Water sports-a-holic. I LOVE to kayak, paddleboard, scuba dive… most anything on/in the water. It’s not unusual to find me hammock camping hanging in the trees, riding my bike, or running. I’ve done a 50K ultra trail run, and countless 5K, 10K, and half marathon races. I’ve jumped out of a perfectly good plane, and my one and only hot air balloon ride ended in a crash landing.
