Hello, I'm Julia, the founder of Paddock 2 Pixel, and the creative behind all photos, videos and recipes you can find on this site. I work from my studio in North East Victoria, Australia, but I happily travel all over Victoria to shoot for clients.

My Mission

To provide every client with mouth-watering creative content that makes them irresistible to their customers, and stand out in the market.

My Story

Passionate about cooking and baking since early childhood, I took the plunge into the food industry in 2018. In order to solidify my skills in the kitchen, I completed a degree in Commercial Cookery at William Angliss Institute in Melbourne, while at the same time spending every free minute practicing my food styling and food photography. Adding videography to the portfolio was the next logical step.

After many years of working office jobs, I realised I feel the happiest when I can be creative, be it kneading dough, scheming up a new recipe, setting up a scene to photograph, holding a camera, or editing an image or video. Yes - this is a one-stop-shop, if you work with me, I’m involved with every aspect of your project, from start to finish.

Over the last five years I have worked on cookbooks, recipe cards, website and social media images and videos, with happy customers from San Remo, Perfect Italiano, Dairy Australia, The Victorian Government, Dandenong Market, Milawa Mustards, Suimin Noodles, Extra Gum and more.
