WORLD PHOTO DAY

Photographer & Videographer

I’m Ollie Whittaker, a photographer and videographer based in Sussex, United Kingdom. I’m a freelance photographer and videographer who specialises in outdoors, lifestyle and automotive content.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST KNOW YOU WANTED TO DO PHOTOGRAPHY AS A CAREER?

 

 

My passion for taking photos started well before I understood what a career was. My youngest memory of consciously creating a shoot, was lining my Hot Wheels cars up on my dad’s desk and taking photos with his film camera. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by photography which then also turned into a passion for videography too. Since then my passion has exponentially grown, and now I couldn’t begin to imagine waking up to another career.

WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER?

 

 

For me, a great photographer is someone who can tell a story from a single still image. It isn’t about taking the shiniest picture of a product, it’s about documenting the rawness and realness of people and how they interact with the world around them.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN THE WORLD TO HAVE A PHOTOSHOOT?

 

 

I’ve seen some amazing places around the world but the Azores has stuck with me as one of the most fascinating. I’d have to say this is my favourite, for the sheer uniqueness of the landscape.

WHAT DOES DON'T JUST EXIST MEAN TO YOU?

 

 

For me, don’t just exist means being brave enough to follow your own path and step outside of a normal life. It’s about taking the less beaten path, because you’re not sure what you might find. I try to bring this ethos with me whenever I’m taking photos as I often find that it’s when I step outside of my comfort zone that I take the best pictures.
