Juliana is a Conservation Biologist and Photographer who believes in the power of photography and storytelling to compel conservation and environmental messages.

Juliana completed a Bachelor in Social Communication and Journalism at Universidad de La Sabana in her native Colombia. After having worked closely with communities effected by environmental problems and following her calling for wildlife and ocean conservation, Juliana undertook a Masters of Conservation Biology at Macquarie University, in Sydney. Her vision is to combine communication tools and the power of visual images to communicate science and the conservation of our natural world.

After completing her studies, Juliana moved to Cairns to grow her career as an Underwater Photographer, complete her Divemasters and immerse herself within reef conservation.

Currently, Juliana combines her work as a Photographer on the Great Barrier Reef with Marine Biology aboard diving vessels for the tourism industry. She also sails around the world as an Expedition Team Member on cruise ships and collaborates with different conservation and photography projects.
