Oliver Woolley


Owner and Head Photographer

Throughout my life I have been an avid people watcher, my camera always by my side. You just never know when that special photo opportunity could appear and it’s often when you least expect it. I love the challenge of capturing those special, sparkling moments and providing my customers with engaging, beautiful, creative photography that they can enjoy for years to come.

I hold a first class honours degree in photography at Nottingham Trent University and have been on a number of additional, recognised training courses with ‘The Trained Eye’. I take great pride in my work and believe that high quality training is vital in order to maintain a fresh and contemporary style and approach. I am comfortable working in any environment and love shooting in new, interesting places.

For my wedding photography and other larger projects I always work alongside an experienced ‘second shooter’ (support photographer), allowing us to take a more varied amount of pictures and capture even more of those unique ‘unseen’ moments on your special day.
