David Oliver London photographers

David Oliver has been photographing people for over 20 years. His "quick and painless" shooting approach encourages subjects to feel at ease in front of the camera and delivers highly natural end results.

"She was absolutely blown-away by the portraits". "Phenomenal... absolutely fantastic shots!" These were just some of the comments after David's recent shoot for Central London company 10UK, whose employees had grown beards to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Limiting his presence to a minimum, David is able to capture the ideal moment when people are at their most relaxed. He managed to deliver this extraordinarily relaxed and natural collection of images from normal office workers, shooting in one of their own meeting rooms. His unobtrusive style allows him to enter into people's environments to the point that they almost forget he is there, permitting him to create images that express genuine character and emotional warmth.
