When it comes down to it, admits Exclusive Moment Photography’s Julia Unchura, it's not the years she spent helping her father in his photography studio that made her pick up a camera of her own. Though staging shots and working with equipment certainly helped her learn about photography, it was the vast beauty of Canada, her adopted country, she says, that triggered her passion for capturing images. Since 2004 when her family left their hometown in Kiev and settled in Ottawa, Julia has followed in the footsteps of her father and his father before him, dedicating her life to taking pictures.
While Canadian landscapes continue to inspire her, Julia now focuses on capturing candid human behaviours. Influenced heavily by the whimsical street photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson and the wedding photography of Emin Kuliyev—with whom she recently studied in New York City—Julia dedicates each of her shoots to the process of drawing out the essence of her subjects. She combats the camera-shyness of clients and bashful poltergeists with casual conversation and her bubbly personality. Though Julia happily welcomes clients into her studio, nature’s call frequently beckons her to lug her equipment outside for fresh-air shoots around the city.

Now the owner of her own studio, Comeau again welds her experience as an educator to her talent for illustration. As with Fellini films and lectures on Thomas Pynchon, anyone over age 3 is welcome: Elaine's group, private, and semiprivate courses are all geared toward different age ranges.
