Who am I?
Hello. I'm Julie Broadfoot, a professional wedding photographer based in Glasgow. The bulk of my work is in Scotland but I am available for work across the UK and worldwide.
Experienced professional photographer
My life as photographer began during my BBC career. I taught myself to shoot the gigs and festivals I was working at, then backstage in TV and radio studios.
In 2010, after nearly 12 years at the BBC, I left to become a full-time photographer. I now regularly photograph weddings, portraits and events for individuals, small business owners, famous faces, charities and big commercial clients. This means I shoot in many different environments, all year round.
Discreet, trustworthy and insured
I'm friendly and discreet so you can trust me to fit in, whether I'm working with your other suppliers, politely obeying church ceremony rules, herding your friends and families into group shots, or lurking with a long lens across the room.
On a more serious note, I have full insurance for my camera kit, along with public liability and professional indemnity insurance, and a basic disclosure from Disclosure Scotland. Visit my LinkedIn profile for more background information.
I'll help you get over your nerves
I'll get natural, happy photos even if you think "there's no way you'll get a good photo of me!". Most people feel like that (myself included) but I'm great at making people comfortable in front of my camera.
Behind the camera
I'm a devoted Auntie, an animal lover, a runner, a reader, a wannabe health freak, an internet addict, a bit of a geek, an ex-BBC Web Producer, a Mini owner and I'm older than I look.
I have a great eye for detail
I love shooting weddings. There's so much going on to photograph. My camera and I anticipate people's actions, watch stories unfold and spot things nobody else has seen. Read more about how I approach wedding photography.
I love natural light and symmetry
When it comes to visuals, I'm a sucker for symmetry and clean lines but I also love the surprises in incongruity. I love natural light and white walls, shapes and negative space, cloudy skies and old brick houses, bokeh, patterns and reflections... whether I'm at a shoot or grabbing iPhone pics on the move.
