"I love photographs that look like paintings..."

Olivier is a fine art photographer currently based in London.  He developed an obsession for the medium at an early age before moving into fine art painting.  He worked for many years in fashion and art publishing before going back to photography full time.  He likes to direct every aspect of his shoots - set dressing, styling and make-up - but more importantly he is in charge of all the post editing and retouching for every single photograph.  His time as a painter along with his fascination for cinema often informs the aesthetics of his images.  His work has been exhibited in numerous UK venues over the years.
