Hello, my name is Julian Dolman. I am a Melbourne based professional portrait and Headshot photographer. I specialise mainly in Actor Headshots, Author portraits and Modelling portfolio’s, as well as personal branding headshots, linkedIn portraits for individuals and also photographic branding and shoots for musical artist’s and singers.
My portrait photography experience is quite broad and I can shoot both in the studio environment using profoto lighting equipment and also using natural light outside the studio enabling me to create a varied range of aesthetics and looks to suit different portraiture requirements.
Gear wise I have been working exclusively with Nikon camera’s and lenses for over 20 years and despite all the advancements in Mirrorless camera systems the DSLR format is (for now) still the go to as it enables very fast capture and pinpoint focus accuracy in a system that is durable and offers raw image integration with Capture Pro enabling total creative control over all aspects of post production.
You can check out my portfolio HERE or at the links below.
The broader portfolio as profiled on this site is centred on previous commissions and personal assignments which cover’s genre’s including editorial, food, travel and street photography.
As the saying goes a life not traveling is like only reading only the first chapter of a book and slowly I am working my way through some places and locations with camera in hand and capturing a little take on the changing landscape of the world at large.
Next up in 2020 is a road trip across the Nullabor and to explore the most Western part of Australia. I am planning to capture this truly incredible and forbidding landscape on my Fujifilm mirrorless camera system. I will be sharing some progress shots on instagram as we prep and while on the road, on returning have plans to print and exhibit some images.
