Julie Grahame is a consultant and curator who has been in the photography industry for 30 years. Her passion is supporting photographers—whether they’re professional, semi-pro, aspiring, or hobbyists—to help them get the most out of their images, which includes helping them improve and develop their work and their presence. In 1992 she moved from London to New York to run an international photo agency representing 400+ photographers. Then, in 2006, she left and took the archive of Yousuf Karsh with her to continue clearing rights for his iconic photographs. Today she edits, writes, and publishes aCurator magazine, which was cited both by the British Journal of Photography and LIFE in their reviews of influencers and taste-makers.
