About the Artist

Juliet Haas began her photographic journey in 1993 as a photography major at Santa Monica College. That year she also volunteered as a photography and darkroom instructor to at risk youth ages 6 to 18 with the original Venice Arts Mecca. She went on to work as a black and white proof printer with four professional Hollywood film processing labs while honing her skills in wedding and portrait photography. When the industry went digital and she found herself without a profession she branched out into other areas of the entertainment industry acquiring many unique skills including loading 35mm Arriflex Motion Picture magazines on Commercial and Short Films, booking the occasional set-stills gig on theater productions and student films as well as working as a Production Coordinator at the dynamic Commercial Boutique FUEL resigning in 2000 while the Dot Com boom was at its height.

After a five year hiatus from photography and unable to shake the yearning to create images, Juliet finally picked up her first digital DSLR over the course of a two-week road trip Summer 2005 and the future was set. Although it would be a number of years before she would be able to devote herself to a full time photography practice in 2012 Juliet was able to return to study with the Julia Dean Photography Workshops and completed their One Year Professional Program August 2013. In January 2014 she won her first award as a Finalist in the Emerging Focus competition exhibiting at PHOTO LA and spoke about her work publicly for the first time as a presenter with Open Show Los Angeles. By May that year she began co-producing Open Show Los Angeles, and in December of 2014 she began working as Project Manager with Your Daily Photograph.

Now a full-time resident of Sacramento, CA, Juliet continues to collaborate with other artists and galleries producing photo-based artist screening events as an exhibition Curator and lead-producer of Open Show Sacramento. In March of 2017 she founded the fine art critique group PHOTO-Sacto whose six founding members continue to meet once a month sharing new projects and inspiration. 

Juliet's most recent awards include Jurors Choice Award for her image Owens Lookout for The 2018 SAC Open Studios Tour, Finalist and Honorable Mention for her image Surveilled which has been published in the Photographer’s Forum hard cover book Best of Photography 2018.

Her series Marionettes and Ghosts of Other Visions has been selected for the exhibition in the Main Gallery at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center August 2019.
