Julie Skarratt in Quest Magazine

I am very excited to share this story that appeared in Quest Magazine. People often ask me what it was like modeling in the 80's and being part of the Eileen Ford Agency in NY.
Here is a little snippet with photos from my modeling assignments that took me from Sydney to Tokyo then on to Milan, Paris, Hamburg and finally NY.
I never set out with the intention of becoming a photographer however every step of my life has lead me in that direction.
Many thanks to Daniel Cappello who came up with the idea of this story and then made it happen. Thanks to Lily Hoagland who interviewed me and wrote the story. Also thanks to Thelma Garcia who helped me with the self portraits and where I could not hold the remote clicked the camera for me.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and all the best for 2015.

Yesterday Jo Lawry came over for a visit with my second shooter Mike Kelly. He has been wanting me to meet her as we are both Australian.
Jo is about to release a new record before she goes back out on the road again early next year with Sting so I took then opportunity to take some photos of her.

The evenings honoree was Vince Tese and after the live auction that included a trip to Italy that I wish I could have bid on and tickets to the super bowl that sounded like fun the evening ended with the guests  dancing as Alumni from Broadway's Jersey Boys rocked the Plaza ballroom.

ABT Fall Gala 2014

Last Wednesday October 22nd 2014 was the ABT Fall Gala at Lincoln Center. I was there for Quest Magazine and as always it was a great group of people to photograph.

I often get asked if any one ever makes me weak at the knees when I work and the answer is no not usually but I have to say when Chris Noth looked up and caught my eye I though I was having a true Sex in the City moment. Where were the cameras and the director. Where was the script that said he would then come over and ask the photographer to dance?

Luckily for my knobby knees that script was not written and I managed to continue on photographing the likes of the beautiful Leslie Ziff, Misty Copeland, Nigel and Cristen Barker, Andrew Martin Weber, Idre Rockefeller, Gillian Miniter, Christian Siriano, Deborah Roberts, Chiu-Ti Jansen, Hanna Bronfman, Jean Shafiroff, Caryn Zucker, Susan Fales-Hill, Star Jones, Julia Loomis, Kevin Mc Kenzie, Anna Tatlock, Rachel Moore, Fe Fendi, Hamish Bowles, Marcelo Gomez  and a host of others.
