Julie Sanch’s Back Road Photography

I did not always know what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I still don’t, and that is what I believe keeps us all going! For as long as I can remember I had this feeling that I could “see things in pictures” meaning that I would look at things, landscapes and people, and envision how that shot would make a nice framed photo.


As a young woman I was interested in computers and computer graphics. I wanted to make cute greeting card pictures and fonts from scratch. I wanted to make those glittery pictures that move. One of my first classes beyond high school was an Adobe Photoshop class because I wanted to create my own graphics. Then I was gifted a camera and started taking pictures of my own, then, small children, animals, trees; anything I could focus on and I have not put the camera down since. Googling tutorials is a favorite past time. Gradually I learned how to edit pictures and have since discovered that there is no end to the learning, the interest and need only shifts into something new.

I enjoy working with people, trying new things, going to events and capturing the moments as best I can through the eye of the camera lens. I am my own worst critic. I feel I am at my best when I have the freedom to do it my way. I also feel most satisfied when I have fulfilled a client’s expectations of their vision. There is a give and take within the meeting of goals within an artistic capacity.  I strive to meet ours.
