In his own words Julian Eales is obsessive about photography. His love of capturing life’s special moments and places was a welcome creative outlet during his 30-year career in the public sector and, when he retired 10 years ago, he decided to turn his hobby into his day job with Eales Photography.


He hasn’t looked back since and over the last decade the freelance photographer has helped hundreds of clients across Cambridgeshire and beyond secure their perfect images. Julian is experienced in all genres of photography, including landscapes, portraits, news, property, music, corporate, events, travel and video. His work has appeared in national newspapers, and he won the Sunday Times Award in the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017 – the winning shot was of a picturesque field of linseed and poppies near Royston.


Over the last year, Julian has found his work shifting more towards the commercial side of photography. Travel has been confined to local areas, weddings postponed, and as many businesses are emerging and reshaping after lockdown, they need new photos and video to help promote and boost their image. He’s been busy shooting shops, restaurants, shopping malls, musical instrument manufacturers, art galleries and of course local independent companies for The Indie! One of his favourite Indie photos was for Felicity White Interiors with Felicity standing in front of two brightly coloured doors – perfect for an interior designer!


Julian still loves being outside, seeking out a dramatic landscape or image for a national newspaper. He also very much enjoys working with people – some of whom may be nervous or unsure of being photographed – so his challenge is to put people at ease, get the photos they need, with a minimum of fuss and discomfort, ideally with the photographer and subject working together to create something special.
