Published bartender and Fine Art photographer
Based in the south of France, Julien spare his time between his fine art photography passion and his entrepreneur life in the bar and spirits industry.
"CRAFT BARTENDING IS MY EXPERTISE. I DEDICATED THE LAST TWENTY YEARS TO IT. PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY OTHER MAJOR MEANS OF PERSONAL EXPRESSION. THESE TWO PASSIONS EACH NOURISH ONE AND ONE MY CREATIVE PROCESS." JULIEN ESCOT
Even if he's recognized for his work in the bar industry, it's another passion, more intimate, a less public one, which Julien recently decided to reveal. Always carrying his signature Leica lens, Julien travels as much for his professionals activities as for more personal photo projects.
Julien discovered a passion for photography when he worked at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc in the late 1990's. There he met major actors, filmmakers and fashion models, but it was the work of great photographers who fascinated him and motivated him to take the plunge.
