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.

Every day is an adventure for this mother polar bear and her cubs. Narrated by two-time Academy Award® nominee Catherine Keener (“Capote,” “Being John Malkovich”), Disneynature’s “Polar Bear” tells the story of a new mother whose memories of her own youth prepare her to navigate motherhood in the increasingly challenging world that polar bears face today. Helmed by Alastair Fothergill and Jeff Wilson, the directing team behind Disneynature’s “Penguins,” and produced by Fothergill, Wilson, Jason Roberts, Keith Scholey and Roy Conli, “Polar Bear” launches exclusively on Disney+ on April 22, 2022. Disneynature also revealed that in honor of the film’s majestic and extraordinarily resilient stars, Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund will continue their longstanding commitment to caring for wildlife and their habitats by supporting Polar Bears International (PBI) in their efforts to help protect polar bear mothers, cubs and their Arctic home. Among a host of activities, PBI is deploying a new aerial radar detection tool to allow aircraft to identify polar bear dens to help protect these sites for polar bear moms and cubs during this crucial period, giving each new cub the best possible start in life. The non-profit organization is also working with Arctic communities to reduce potential human-bear conflicts to keep bears and people safe, as well as efforts to inspire action on climate change globally. “Polar Bears International is an exceptional organization doing exceptional work for both the polar bears and the environment in which they live,” said Roy Conli, who is a producer of “Polar Bear.” “They bring essential awareness to the general populace of what’s going on in the Arctic and the realities polar bears face today, and inspire us all to take action to positively change the future for this species. I’m so proud that we’re working with their incredible team.” “Disneynature’s engaging and beautiful films are known for their ability to tug at the heart and inspire people to care,” said Krista Wright, executive director of Polar Bears International. “We’re thrilled to be working with such a creative team as they tell the story of a polar bear mom as she navigates a changing Arctic. We’re also extremely grateful to Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund for their generous support of our work to protect moms and cubs as well as our other polar bear conservation efforts.” Twitter: @DisneyPlus / @Disneynature Instagram: @DisneyPlus / @Disneynature Facebook: @DisneyPlus / @Disneynature
