Hi I’m Oliver and I run Contakt Photography, a wedding and commercial photography company based in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, working nationally and worldwide. Photography is my passion, profession and my inspiration. I don’t just photograph subjects; I capture the moment and the way it makes me feel.
I feel it’s the best way to describe my approach to this incredible profession. I wrestle with every photograph I take. I assume perfection is possible and strive to pluck it out of every shot. If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s all you need.
Shooting across both weddings and commercial genres allows me to take the best attributes both industries have to offer and translate that into work all my clients love. The technical understanding and critical thinking demanded by my commercial clients means I have an intrinsic knowledge that allows me to enter a wedding planned to a tee and able to adapt instantly to an ever changing landscape as the day unfolds.
For me, wedding photography is all about emotion, and constantly expanding my emotive vocabulary when it comes to photography, means that when I’m shooting a commercial client’s food menu for instance, I’m equipped to find creative ways to inspire an audience to be seduced by the imagery.
