About Judith Gravel, Artist Photographer

Why only photographing women?

Because they deserve it! Like many, I am a woman who doesn’t like having her pictures taken. I have learn how to make a woman look amazing in photographs, I experienced it and I want to share my talent and knowledge with you. You don’t need to be a super model to feel like one! And I will prove it to you… All to say that men usually don’t like having their hair and make-up done anyway!   ;)

My photography

I want to create custom artwork of you. My artistic style is all about capturing your beauty and I strive to create a really fun and different experience for you in my studio. I don’t want you to stress out (I am offering a spa day-experience); I want you to enjoy the entire process of creating beautiful photographs that you will love and share proudly.

I work really hard to find exclusive, unique and high quality products for you to display and preserve the artwork that we created together.I love photographing indoor so I can focus and have all my attention on you and not on the weather. It really allows me to capture your personality.

I don’t schedule clients after clients. I am never in a hurry. When you book your session with me, that day is dedicated to you. It gives me the opportunity to know you better and create artwork that represent you – The woman you are now in your life.

If you haven’t sensed it yet, I am a perfectionist in what I love to do; this means that all the photographs I show are edited to my standard. Even if I don’t love the editing part of the process, I love the results I create.

Judith Gravel, artiste photographeMe!

I am originally from the province of Québec (Canada). I have lived in Rome (Italy) for almost two years, lived in Ontario (Canada) for 10 years, and now I am back in Québec (Canada). I would say that I am an experienced traveler; I travelled 14 countries. I love to meet people and learn about them. I secretly wish that one day I will to travel to photograph someone, maybe it will be you… Please…  ;)

I have two brown chocolate Labrador that I love so much: Syrius and Sothïs. They often help me in my work; either by being models or by sporting tulle leftovers.

I have the most amazing & supportive husband anyone could ask for! He was my model for a photograph I won a contest with and sometimes I leave him take the credit for.  ;) He even go as far as being my mannequin when I create attire but I doubt you will ever see this…

Finally, I consider myself very lucky to be able to do what I love every day : photographing beautiful and fascinating persons.

Why Z…?

When I was a kid, my insightful cousins nicknamed me: Zazoo (Zazou). They though it was cute and I am pretty sure they didn’t know the definition: During World War II in France, Zazous were eccentric young adult who loved jazz and wore oversized clothing and long hair (against fabric rationing and the Vichy decree), often carrying umbrellas that they wouldn’t open. Can I tell you I hated that nickname? Nonetheless, it got stuck with me. Then, with time and “maturity” (heu-hummm), I started loving it and using it as my e-mail addresses and as my artist’s signature.

I hope you will keep coming back to my website and do not hesitate to e-mail me to ask questions or just to say “Hi!”, I would love to hear from you.


P.S. I love when people leave comments on my posts on the social networks (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram) and when I get new connections on LinkedIn…  ;)
