Julia Schiller

Julia Schiller (* 1980, Landshut, Bavaria) currently lives and works as a photographer, publisher and freelance art director in Berlin.

She studied media design, photography and communication management and started her career as an art director in Munich, followed by Athens, Greece, where she lived for a couple of years and worked as a creative director in advertising.

Julia is based in Berlin, Germany since 2006, where she founded the online magazine Actual Colors May Vary {ACMV} in 2010 together with Oliver Schneider. With ACMV they introduced new talents in photography, organized and curated exhibitions & events in Berlin, and participated in international photo festivals. They also run Local Colors May Vary (LCMV) – a series of curated, themed slideshows combining photography with live music by international artists.

Motivated by her passion for photography, Julia founded PiB — Photography in Berlin in spring 2015. PiB is a bilingual (de/en) platform for fine art photography & documentary photography and presents select highlights from Berlin’s versatile photography scene to an international  art audience – on PiB’s daily updated website, in the weekly eNewsletter, and in the bi-monthly published printed PiB Guide. In 2023, Oliver joined Julia in running this platform.

In 2017 Julia & Oliver also formed ele studio, via which they offer art direction for print & online, favoring projects in the cultural & social sector.

Julia is a member of Saloon Berlin, the network for female professionals in Berlin’s art scene.
