Before Print Futures in a country far, far away Julian worked in the IT industry as a Business Analyst and Technical Writer. He has worked for some large companies such as Royal Dutch Shell, Barclays Bank, and British Aerospace in the UK. Julian moved to Vancouver six years ago and since then has worked for VanCity, Coast Capital Savings, and Fincentric.
Besides Writing and Photography Julian enjoys travelling. He has visited South America, Asia, Northern Africa, The Middle East, The Far East, and some parts of Europe. Julian goes to the gym and tries to keep fit to run in half-marathons. He enjoys quizzes and crosswords, in fact problem-solving in general. He was a member of Mensa when he lived in the UK. Julian loves the theatre and cinema. His favourite plays are Blood Wedding and The Royal Hunt of the Sun. His favourite films are Cinema Paradiso, Jean de Florette, and Shadowlands.
Julian has written articles on European and Middle-Eastern architecture for Skipping Stones, a US children’s magazine, and has been published in the following:
- Fate Magazine - a story about the Cart Ruts of Malta.
- The Vancouver Sun - a piece on the Great Wall of China and Beijing.
- Outdoor Pursuits Magazine - Stories about hiking in British Columbia and walking around the Plitvice National Park in Croatia.
- Northwest Travel - an article on the Telus World of Science in Vancouver.
“Julian’s writing has always impressed me with its combination of style, insight, structure and content. Combining with its sound spelling, grammar and punctuation, you can see why I have been happy to pay for it! Similarly, I have regarded the ‘bank’ of photographs I held as a valuable resource. Technically sound, the combination of ‘bread and butter’ shots and variation in composition from the obvious complemented Julian’s writing and allowed me to use images in other contexts.”
John Traynor, Editor, Outdoor Pursuits, On Foot & Outdoor Review, St Bonnet de Four, France
Julian has taken many photographs that have appeared in travel books by National Geographic, Thomas Cook , Cadogan, and The Rough Guides.
“Julian’s work is of a high standard …. and images taken by him have appeared in such prestigious publications as the Readers Digest coffee table books. I have found him easy to work with, he listens to what is required and his submissions are always supplied in the correct manner.”
Christine Osborne, Managing Director, Christine Osborne Pictures, London, UK
"My opinion is that Julian’s photographs are very interesting and unique. He has a painter’s eye for composition.”
