A little more about my journey as a photographer...
Jules Frazier is an award-winning photographer based out of Seattle WA. A native northwest girl growing up in Bellevue, Jules started taking pictures at the age of seven while traveling to horse shows with her Dad. Inspired at first by black and white photography, fashion, art, and design, she pursued her passion and received a degree in commercial photography at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. Upon graduation her plan was to move to Manhattan to start a fashion photography career. She never made it to New York. “Three weeks after selling my car and putting a deposit down on a NY apartment, a last-minute ski trip to Sun Valley changed everything,” says Frazier. After the snows receded and, on a dare, Jules entered a Rodeo Queen contest and was ultimately crowned the 1985 Miss Hailey Idaho/Days of the Old West Rodeo Queen. It was the first Rodeo she had ever attended. Frazier’s rodeo queen days were filled with amusing and amazing moments and characters that she documented beautifully on film. It is this body of work that launched Jules’ reputation as a distinguished fine art photographer to collectors.
“What started out as a photographic series in color on The American Rodeo Queen has broadened to several collections, my most collected , Faded Icons of The West. From cowgirls and cowboys to old neon signage and landscapes the sepia-toned photographs are my interpretation of the code of the west and the people who live it. “ Jules Frazier
Since 1986, she has traversed the west documenting the unique expression of its people and its creed, in its veneration and its stillness. The fusion of her experience renders a new vision in The Faded Icons of the West. From the deserts of Arizona to the high grasslands of Montana, Jules captures the distinctive texture and animated solitude of the West’s uncompromising arid landscapes.
“Her interest in rodeo began in 1985 when she was crowned Miss Days of the Old West, Hailey Rodeo Queen, Idaho. During a year of traveling around the west
as a rodeo queen, she became fascinated with the rodeo life and then for the next 15 years photographed all facets of the sport as well as icons of the American West. In stark contrast to the West that is often romanticized, Frazier turns an almost journalistic eye to her subjects. The result is an unpretentious, straightforward social commentary on a tough, itinerant lifestyle.”
