Oliver was great to work with! He is professional and was extremely flexible in photographing various aspects of our conference (exhibits, presenters, audience, attendees, etc.) as well as headshots of each member of our Board of Directors. I highly recommend Oliver! More...

Our restaurant company has not worked with Oliver twice now and have been thrilled with the work he has provided us with as well the entire experience with him! His response time, overall communication, efficiency, creativity and proactive dedication towards capturing exactly what we envision is unparalleled. The images he has produced has helped us create wonderful marketing collateral throughout DC, NYC, Chicago, Virginia, Philly and Boston. We can't wait to work with him again and again! More...

I got a bunch of responses from a variety of photographers, but Oliver’s stood out immediately. He was quite articulate at describing a process that aligned a client’s vision with his execution. The creative brief and interview process was very helpful at establishing the direction of the shoot. He’s collaborative, creative, but also pragmatic understanding the scope of the job and keeping within budget parameters. The resulting product shots are already making a difference in how I can positive my crafts. I highly recommend. More...

Thank you so much for leaving such a positive review! I have to note that it was a real pleasure working with you also and I hope we can continue to develop our creative relationship in the future.

The photographer was great and he selected good pictures from the photo shoot. However, the picture could not be sized down to the size that fits our intranet settings without losing the effects.

Dear Ankur, I glad you were pleased with the shoot and the resulting images. I offer my sincerest apologies that you had trouble compressing the files to a size that was compatible with your intranet. There is an option to download the images for social media that may provide you with a more manageable file. If you have any further requests, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Warmest regards, Oliver

Working with Oliver from OJRT Photography for our family's photo shoot was wonderful. Our children were very comfortable with him and we were able to get some amazing photos for our holiday cards, thanks to Oliver's talent.

We had a fantastic family photo shoot with Oliver! His work is brilliant and he is so incredibly easy to work with. He had great ideas for where to take the photos and was able to capture our children’s personalities in a beautiful setting. He was so helpful in working with us to choose our favorite photos. Thank you Oliver for capturing our family so well! More...

Oliver took family photos of our family (including three young and rambunctious children) at home and along a nearby walk. It was a wonderfully relaxed photography session and Oliver took the time to get the right shots and make any changes once we had chosen our photos. Our photos were brilliant. In addition, his fees and prices for the photographs are extremely good. Definitely well worth booking. More...

We recently worked with Oliver to get family photos with our 6 month old son, grandparents, and goldendoodle pup. Oliver was amazing to work with - despite the multiple indoor locations we chose and our energetic pup and baby, Oliver was able to facilitate and direct us with ease to ensure we got all the shots we had envisioned. Very professional, easy to work with, and publishes photos with speed - we look forward to working with him again! More...

Oliver from OJRT Photographer is the husband of one of my best friends, so I have had the priviledge of seeing his photos personally for the past few years. I've always been so impressed with his talent and his eye for capturing photos that seem to capture life. I also really liked that his photos have almost an editorial feel for them like they belong in a magazine. When it came time to do our family photos I knew that he was the right choice. This would be the first family photo that my boyfriend, daughter Julia and I would have taken together and I wanted it to be special. My idea for a vintage 1950's family Christmas photo shoot was met with eager excitement from Oliver. We exchanged ideas, I worked on the location, fashion, props etc and we met Oliver in early November to take our photos. Oliver made this shoot so easy and relaxed. His vision and mine were in sync. He spent so much time making sure we got the shots we wanted. To say we are pleased with our photos would be a total understatement. We are beyond thrilled!!! They are just stunning! They honestly look like they belong in a vintage copy of Vogue magazine. These are going to make wonderful gifts for our families and ourselves that we'll cherish for a lifetime. I would highly recommend Oliver for any of your photography needs. You will not be disappointed! More...

Oliver was the photographer for our wedding, and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He listened very carefully to what we wanted and was quite thoughtful in his execution. At a time that wasn’t necessarily filled with detailed instruction, he was flexible, creative, and detailed in his craft. Expect top-notch service and photographs from a charming individual. Thanks Oliver! More...

Oliver was great to work with. He did our family photographs back in the fall. He was really good with the kids, and I liked that he took some traditional shots, but also some that were more artistic and creative. We were really happy with the results of the shoot, and look forward to working with him again in the future. More...

Q&A

In my experience there are several elements that contribute to taking a great photograph. Firstly, I think that you have to be prepared, plan for the shot and be ready to capture the small, imitable moments that are fleeting but perfectly capture the essence of your subject. I also think that having a good relationship with the subject you are photographing helps, you create a relaxed, comfortable environment to shoot in, greatly increasing your chances of your subject opening up.

Do you have any images in mind that you want you want your images to resemble. I am not advocating copying in any way whatsoever. But, I think that for clients its easier to have a visual example of how they want their images to look than trying to describe with words. What I would then do is collate dozens of other images that are similar and from there we would have a detailed discussion about what they like and don't like form amongst my reference images.

Other than that, the obvious questions would be 'When do you need them by?", "What is your budget?", "Where will they be used?"

The thing I love most about my job is the diversity of my projects. I could be shooting a family portrait session one day, followed by some product shots and then a wedding. I also love the technical aspects of my job. Lighting people, objects and spaces is a passion of mine.

I recently moved to the USA from London where I had a busy job with unsociable hours. When we moved here I became a full time dad until my son started school. I wanted to do something that I was passionate about but that also gave me the opportunity to be able to work around my children's needs. Going back to Photography put me back in touch with my roots and working for myself gave me a real sense of pride.

I am a normal guy who loves what he does. I am experienced, easy going and am only concerned with producing the highest quality images for my clients. Working for myself means I am only as good as my last job, so you can rest assured you will always receive the most professional service when working with me.

Services

Bespoke corporate headshots for small businesses or large corporations. My mobile studio can be set up at an office, in a conference room or at an event. Individual employees stand for between 10-30 mins depending on size of party or availability.

Family y portrait sessions start at $125 p/h, with images priced based on amount purchased, you can view the brackets here: https://www.ojrtphotography.com/price-list. I work very closely with the family to ensure the desired result is achieved, this includes free consultations, reference imagery mood boards, location scouts, even meeting the family beforehand to foster familiarity for the shoot. I'm flexible, willing to re-shoot/re-schedule or re-edit to guarantee customer satisfaction.

A slightly different service to family portraits, this is a more artistic approach to children's photography. I try to create something that will look beautiful on your wall in your home or office that is timeless. An artistic impression of your child that speaks to you and that fits within your home perfectly. Children sit individually, allowing me the time needed to really find the perfect moment that captures your child's personality. I believe even though you are using lights and backdrops, as a photographer its my job to get your child to relax and open up, showing me who they really are. Allowing me to capture that 'candid' moment that every parent is searching for but in a situation that I can control, yielding the best results.
