I am Julie Whelan. I’m combining my background in sports with my love for photography to produceย incomparable images of fitness instructors, personal trainers, and athletes in competition & training environments.


As a child, I spent my time giving my Mom grey hair playing contact hockey, or going on adventures outside with my brothers. I was outside most of the timeย andย when I was eight I began to document my adventures. I’ve been lucky to always know what I wanted to be when I grew up, so when it was time to go off to college, I took Creative Photography at Humber College in Toronto. My dream started becoming a reality.

The Business

After photography school, so became Julie Whelan Photography: an active lifestyle & fitness photography business providing high quality environmental portraits and action sports images to tireless fitness instructors and active individuals.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have my photography take me all over the globe. Some of my adventures include Africa, South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific Islands, the U.K., Europe, Mexico, South America, the United States, and of course, Canada.
