Hello! My name is Olya & I am a passionate visual artist! I am a professional photographer with over 6years of experience shooting internationally as well as in the US.
I am a NATURAL LIGHT EXPERT -- And also I am a great photo color gradist - which is why every photo you see in my portfolios has been lovingly cinematically coloured....
SNAPPR does not require the level of "photo edits" that you can see in my Folios but I will gift you a few since they are time consuming to do!
I am a British Government deployed & trained photojournalist so I love to tell "your story" & always look for all of the ingredients of a shoot - I am looking for "details that I can photograph" for complete capture of your photo shoot! After spending 8 weeks at the beginning of my career shooting everything to do with an upcoming political campaign on an overseas British island country called Montserrat -- I have an excellent narrative and detail oriented eye and I love being an in-demand photojournalist.
In fact my partner Sky ( also on here) and I have had our own company shooting all things photographic & videographer since 2014 - and since 2017 we have over 300 5🌟 reviews.
>200 5🌟 Google Business Reviews, google: Unicorn Productions LA Photography & Film!
I specialize in lifestyle and portrait photography, fashion, event photography and photojournalism. I conceptualize and take photos for brands, artists, business professionals, chefs, doctors and others. I also cover many events, including red carpet, brand launches, concerts, conferences, political rallies and festivals. I am easy going, creative and passionate about photography and making you shine whilst having fun with me!
If you're lucky, Sky might make a guest appearance too!
I love capturing candid moments with real emotions in them and also, conceptualizing and creating mood boards for projects that involve people.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many lifestyle and portrait shoots, I've also covered a big number of events. If it's a creative shoot, I make it special by doing a lot of research and creating excellent mood boards for my clients, and having a great and supportive attitude on set. I always make sure I get their vision clearly and do my best to recreate it in the images.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
My partner Sky (on here) and I helped get an underdog political party elected as the new Government of the British country of Montserrat. We were the only photographers asked to conceptualise and shoot all portraits, lifestyle and events for this political party. We then were asked to shoot the portraits of the New President Donaldson Romeo.
Sky and I shoot extensively for cancer charities and head overseas on medical missions as medical photojournalists shooting in the OR operations and surgical portraits:
