Julian Love: Editorial Travel

Photograph © Julian Love -All Rights Reserved

Julian Love is a travel and lifestyle photographer in London, who specializes in photographing boutique hotels, adventure sports and editorial travel assignments. You'll recognize his distinctive style from the various photo galleries on his website

His latest gallery is of Sri Lanka, and it largely consists of Julian's editorial travel photographs of this lovely island. On his blog, Julian shares with his readers his mishaps when setting up his photo shoots of the stilt fishermen north of Galle. I'm glad he was careful to photograph a fisherman wearing a traditional straw hat rather than the ubiquitous baseball caps. I recall having had a difficult time excluding the fishermen who wore these ugly caps from my shots while photographing there.

Julian is the 2008 National Geographic Traveller / Photo District News "World in Focus" Winner, the 2007 Wanderlust Professional Photographer of the Year and the 2006 Travel Photographer of the Year.
