I'm Ollie, a Director of Photography and Drone Operator, driven by an ambition to help share stories, rendered in beautiful images.
I'm regularly hired for documentary and wildlife cinematography, but with a broad background spanning commercials, narrative work, and live broadcast. My credits reflect the versatility of my skills base, and my ability to operate in a range of different shooting styles. They include Netflix's 'Our Universe', Disney's Emmy award nominated 'The World According to Jeff Goldblum', BBC landmark 'Perfect Planet', and National Geographic's Darren Aronofsky led spectacles 'Welcome to Earth' and 'One Strange Rock'. I'm currently engaged on a number of landmark series for major international platforms which are under NDA and due to hit screens in the coming years.
My skillset includes gimbal work (Shotover M1/DJI/Movi), vehicle rigging, long-lens, verite´ style docu-follow, lighting for scene-work and interviews, and time-lapsing. I am certified as a commercial drone pilot by the CAA(UK-EU), FAA(USA), and Transport Canada; with hundreds of hours of logged flight experience globally. I also hold Swift-water Rescue level 1 and am Remote First Aid and Bear Safety trained. Never one to be daunted by new technology I'm always tinkering and adapting the latest equipment to be able to capture stories in a unique way that most compliments them, without limitations.
