Below you will be able to view other pieces of my work via Vimeo. It will hopefully show you some more examples of the variety of my work and allow you to watch some of the shots from my showreel in context. 

Oliver is currently working as a Broadcast Technical Operator and Lighting PSC Cameraman for QVC UK.

 

After he graduated with a BA Honors in Graphic Design (specializing in Photography) from the 'Norwich School of Art and Design he began working in the broadcasting industry in the camera department as a Techincal Operator at Cellcast TV. His next post was VT Director, a role created for him by the company. He was responsible for creating all pre-recorded material to support the live shows. Although he produced all call sheets, wrote sccripts and shooting schedules, his real passion was lighting and operating the camera. During his time as VT Director he produced, lit and shot over 200 VT's for the company.

 

Recently accepted in to 'The Guild of Televsion Cameramen', Oliver's duties at QVC include camera operating on the studio floor, vision control and sound mixing live shows. He is also part of the PSC Department, the responsibilities of this part of his jobtake him out on location, lighting and shooting a wide variety of promo's, demo's and interviews for the in house production department at QVC and their vast client base.

 

Outside of QVC Oliver uses all of his experience of lighting and cameras working on low budget short films and music videos. His most recent project 'CLOSE TO HEAVEN' was commissioned by ARRI and Directors UK and was one of the first productions to be shot digitally anamorphically on the new Arri Alexa 4:3 Plus.

 

Oliver's ambition is to graduate to larger commercial productions and feature films.

TESTIMONIALS

Anna Kersey - Production Supervisor QVC UK

 

"Olie is one of our strongest camera operators.  He has a great visual eye, is full of ideas and shows great commitment to the job.  He is happy to go the extra mile - always keen to get involved from the planning stages, is diligent in his technical work and always endeavours to do his best.  He consistently produces great results, always asks for feedback (is keen to see the end project) and I would say is a pleasure to work with! In particular I would highlight his pre-production work for L'occitane."

 

Paul Burns - Senior Producer QVC UK

 

"Olie is very professional in his approach. He always takes keen interest in a project from start to finish. He always offers up ideas both before and when shooting and is often instrumental in steering the style of a shoot. Olie is always conscientious and thorough in his preparation which inevitably has a positive impact. In a nutshell: he goes the extra mile."

 

Martin Denham - Producer/Director QVC UK

 

"Oliver's drive and commitment to pushing the art of cinematography at QVC is really inspiring, and it's been a real pleasure for me to work with him on several promos over the last year. Oliver is a great collaborator, and his enthusiasm pushes me to come up with better ideas that compliment and justify his technical and creative ability. Oliver is very approachable and supportive, and his eye catching visuals really enhance the look of QVC."
