Profile and About Julia Swanson Photography

Hello! Hola! Ciao!

Julia is a blogger, photographer and journalist with a passion for multi-media storytelling, science and art. A storyteller by nature, she has always tried to create the kind of evocative and dynamic imagery that reflects her interests and experiences in the world. The images on this website are constantly evolving and showcase a small selection of work from the past few years.

Julia graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a B.A. in Spanish and a special concentration in Latin American Studies. Later she graduated, with honors, from the professional photography program at the New England School of Photography and then earned a Masters degree in Journalism from Northeastern University in 2012. When not developing story ideas Julia can be found at the beach, cooking, watching movies and wandering around the metro Boston area with her camera

Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Best, Julia.
