Julie Montel, born in 1982, lives in Paris. She grew up in a little countryside village near Bordeaux, but as citizen of the world she has travelled broadly and lived in Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Indonesia
Since her early childhood she studied dance and music, with a special attention to Jazz and Classic themes. After a communications Degree she decided to pursue her inner desires and explore her artistic sides by entering an acting school in Paris that paved the way for her career as an actress.
In parallel, and feeding her passion for electronic music, she created a label, Petite records to promote her artistic choices. By then, she started to capture in images the clubbing culture and signed her first photographic coverage contracts with clubs, festivals and magazines.
In the last years, Montel’s work has evolved to broader subjects: architecture, still life, street photography and urban & wild landscapes.
