Lucid Dream Pictures is photographer Julian Newman Turner.

Having started out as an actor, director and film maker moving into photography was a natural progression. I have a passion for creating art and I consider my photography to be no different, whether I'm photographing a portrait or a wedding or one of the many personal projects I keep myself busy with.

In my years as a professional photographer I have done product work as well as production (both film and theatre) photography but my main interest has always been photographing people.

The equipment really isn't important but for those interested I shoot with high end digital cameras, but also shoot a lot of traditional film and also use retro cameras including Polaroids and Holgas. They are all just tools, and I will use the right tool based on the job that I take on.

I offer a wide choice of high quality framing options and albums to present your photographs in the best possible way.

Customer Testimonials

"Julian did the photos for my wedding back in October of last year and my husband and I were delighted with the results. What really impressed us was the intimacy of the moments he managed to capture without ever being intrusive. Also we had a large group of fairly lively guests and Julian was brilliant at organising everyone and getting all the shots we wanted without having those guests hanging around for hours. When he gave us our wedding book we were quite simply overwhelmed! It is so beautiful, not only has he captured our special day perfectly but he has done it with such artistic flare. My Husband and I both agreed that he made us feel like film stars and lets face it if you can't feel like a film star on your wedding day when can you! I would whole heartedly recommend Julian as your wedding photographer, in fact I'd go so far as to say you'd be crazy not to use him."

"We are totally blown away by your talent and how much time/love you have put in to it all - AMAZING!! We absolutely love the book, its sooo beautiful! We cant wait to show everyone. THANK YOU! It will be treasured for many many moons to come.

Excellent! I contacted Lucid Dream Pictures because I needed some formal promotional photographs for concert programmes. I received a reply very quickly, and within a week I had already had a photo-shoot session at home. I then received a disc with the photos that I chose on it in high/low definition and colour/black and white. Great service - would definitely recommend/use again!

Professional and friendly. I had some headshots taken for my acting career and I was very impressed by Lucid Dream Pictures. They were friendly and gave me good advice about what would be right for acting. Would defently recommend them.

We offer video production services from concept through to final edited product.

For an actor or actress a headshot is one of the most important tools at their disposal. It's often the first contact a casting director will have with you, and those first impressions count! My headshot package consists of the photo shoot (obviously) which could last up to an hour. Then you will receive contact sheets of your photos where you will be able to choose four of your favourite shots. I will then prepare your chosen shots in colour and black & white, in high resolution (for print) and low resolution (for web & email) which you will receive as a digital download.
