I'm Juli Bonell - Photographer and random movie quoter. 


You could easily say that I'm a bit eclectic; an outgoing introvert who's obsessed with white mocha lattes, Disneyland, true crime, travelling, history, zombies, and binge watching the latest series. I love yoga just as much as I love singing loudly in my car with the windows down. I'll admit, that last one's not pretty. 

Here, you'll find my articles and info to help you with your photography needs, or maybe even a few musings and sarcasm that you can relate to. Feel free to take a look around and connect, or ask me any questions you have. Enjoy!
