Hope Funds For Cancer Research

Last night at a dinner at the beautiful Rancho Valencia just out side of San Diego Hope Funds for Cancer Research announced that they had received a gift of $1.5 million dollars from San Diego residents Antonio Grillo-Lopez and his wife Maria. The evening started with a panel discussion followed by dinner under the stars. For many of the east coast attendees it was a welcome reprieve from the cold east coast weather.

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.

The CCBF Fall Gala, Plaza Hotel, November 18th 2014

On Tuesday night I attended the CCBF Breakthrough Ball at The Plaza Hotel. CCBF stands for Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation and the event raised over one million dollars for children in need.
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.
