Oli is an armchair anthropologist, fascinated with all of the weird, wonderful, large and small things that make us human. Don't be fooled by any of the wacky stuff on this website - he takes this job super seriously, and 200 of the worlds most discerning couples have hired him to gather record of precious memories and moments.
It turns out that a lot of these things are on display when we celebrate and engage in ritual (a wedding), and Oli photographs them from his home base in Melbourne, and has also become the choice for folks wanting creative coverage of their wedding everywhere over the world.
Having been within several creative industries over the last two decades, he currently spends his time as an award winning photographer and creative lecturer internationally, and if you connect with the images over this site, would be honoured to invest himself into making something wonderful for you.
