Julie McKay Covert is a published author, photographer, therapist and teacher. Her passion for nature is seen in her photographs and expressed in her writing. She lives with her husband, Hugh, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron where she fell in love with winter. They live off-the-grid using solar energy for electricity and wood and propane for heating and cooking.
When Julie McKay Covert began studying photography 15 years ago, she used it as an excuse to go for a hike or spend a leisurely day at a botanical garden. She found photography was her creative way to express her love for nature.
Eventually, there came a point in her life when she had to decide whether she would do photography full time or go into massage therapy. Julie's photography teachers told her, "Julie, you have what it takes to do photography professionally. However, if you want to continue enjoying photography don't do it for a living." She chose to go into massage to make her living, which paid for her photographic pursuits.
Julie has now reached a point where photography has come back more center stage. Under the publishing name, Whitehead Press, she is now publishing a full-color professionally designed and printed coffee table book of her images. It is entitled Art of Winter and shows the beauty that winter creates with snow and ice. This book shows her love of winter through the lens of her camera - in this way she gets to share with others two of her passions.
