Julia Loglischi, Photographer; Julia Loglisci Photography
In 2012, I graduated from Camosun College in Victoria, BC, where I received my Diploma in Communications. Driven towards a career as a broadcast journalist, it wasn’t until after college where I found myself falling in love with the art of photography. Right after school, I was hired to write and shoot for a local tattoo and culture lifestyle magazine, which really kick started my career. I then spent time traveling the world and living in many other big cities, working and gaining experience as a photographer, which eventually was the reason why I came back home to Victoria.
I have been directing my energy towards shooting weddings, boudoir and lifestyle portraits, but I also really enjoy shooting real-estate and neighbourhoods for developers. I am proud to call Victoria, B.C. my home, where there is no shortage of work and inspiration. I love what I do and I’m very fortunate that I get to pursue my passion as a career.
Founded in 2001, Women In Leadership Foundation (WIL) delivers inspirational programs that bring women together to collaborate in the development of their leadership skills & creates positive change in the future of women’s leadership.
