My Bio

My expertise lies in combining thinking creatively to tell a story together with my skills as a camerawoman to produce a well-crafted and executed film.


With 20 years’ experience working on remote locations and extreme cold environments.


Field Director and Camerawoman on award-winning series and films including BBC Seven Worlds, One Planet and DisneyNature Penguin and Polar Bear.


Experienced managing logistics and crew, camera equipment, writing and directing wildlife and people story sequences.


“Julie played a crucial role for Disneynature Polar Bear. On our remote shoots she supported out complex digital needs with great efficiency. She also shot some very strong making of content. Julie is a great team player and very self motivated”.

                                                                Alastair Fothergill | Silverback 

“Julie was a fantastic asset for our 2021 trip out in Gabon where she was across a range of equipment, including long lens, movi and macro set ups. She consistently explored new and creative ideas on location (both cinematic and editorial), and was a brilliant team player”.

                                                                                  Hugh Wilson  | BBC                                                           


"Working with Julie is a pleasure from start to finish. She has a fantastic eye and her Nat Hist shooting is beautiful, thoughtful and charged with emotion. Julie also makes powerful human connections which allows her to draw the best out of people when filming actuality and interviews. I value Julie’s editorial expertise enormously - her ideas and suggestions transform good sequences into great moments."

Our Universe - Ep2 -The Cosmic Clock

BBC / Netflix - due in 2023

2021, I spent 5 weeks in Loango National Park filming chimps, working with a team of trackers and scientists in the field. Alongside another DOP, we shared combination of long lens, gimbal, and macro set ups, throughout the expedition. For the most part I was working independently capturing a range of elements for the film, including 50% of the main camera days out in the forest. 


In addition to the camerawork, as a native French speaker, I was also helping to manage logistics on the ground, especially as the producer was not on location for the whole trip. In his absence, I took over the field directing and oversaw the shooting list to make sure we got everything we needed for the film. I then helped manage the return trip home from Loango to Libreville, and then on to the UK.

From 2019 to 2021, I directed and produced a social documentary about unemployed people trying to re-enter working life. I wanted to give those people a chance to tell their story. For 2 years, I followed 5 women and men through their path.


For this film, I came up with the idea, I directed and conducted ITW’s. In some cases, I was also in charge of the second camera, the timelapse work and the sound.

For the post-production, I logged all the rushes and I created the rough cut.


The film is still in the last stage of post-production. Due in May 2022.

In 2019, I decided to cross by foot lake Baïkal alone and unattended. I organized the logistic for the expedition.

I decided to make a film about my expedition. A cameraman came aboard and recorded my crossing for 20 days. For this to happen, I organized for him to get a fixer, an itinerary and everything necessary for his filming.

During the expedition, I took with me a timelapse kit, sound kit, a couple of GoPro’s and the necessary to recharge batteries.


During the post-production, I was in charge of logging the rushes, creating the story and I oversaw the edit.
