Juliet Van Dyke Harless ~ Lead Photographer

Juliet Van Dyke Harless has worked as a photographer for nearly 20 years. After receiving a degree in Public Relations and Marketing, Juliet developed her eye for great photography when she began working in the modeling and talent industry in Dallas, Texas. With all of her years of experience in the business, she serves as a consultant and mentor. Juliet is often called upon for interviews for television, radio and newspaper feature stories as an expert in the industry. She also conducts educational seminars across the country as a key note speaker on photography on a regular basis.

While working as an agent, casting director and manager for an international talent organization, Juliet picked up a camera and began shooting up and coming stars. "I knew the look that the clients were asking for," says Juliet, "so I started shooting the talent myself." After only a short time, her keen eye for composition, light and color began winning her numerous national awards. She has successfully worked with hundreds of models and talent with agencies in Chicago, New York, LA, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Europe and Japan. She began traveling all over the country, shooting for various agencies and various clients for designers, catalogs and magazines.

She furthered her studies when she attended the Texas Institute for Photographic Studies and the Ferro Photography School. With the knowledge of a pro, she expanded her business to include weddings, family portraits, senior portraits and children's photography. Juliet's unique style makes her work look like it's straight out of a magazine. "I can make almost anyone look like a star," says Juliet. One unique aspect of her work is that she also does free make-up with her service. She even will assist you in selecting the right clothing for your shoot.
