I’m Paula, a friendly photographer based in Yorkshire. I enjoy photographing pretty much anything, especially live events like weddings and parties.
I started photographing things around me aged 11, using my grandmother’s camera. On my 14th birthday my dad bought me my first “proper” camera, a vintage 1963 Exacta 35mm film SLR. My teenage hobby never left me and has progressed into a full time job.
Ollievision Photography was founded in 2002. People online often assume I’m a bloke called Oliver, but the “Mr Ollie of Ollievision” is actually my 14 year old son!
Most of my business is capturing the emotions and expressions of once in a lifetime events like weddings, birthday parties and public occasions. I was the official photographer for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee visit to Leeds, an ASO accredited photographer for Tour de France and have covered many other once in a lifetime events.
Many clients tell me they don’t know who to trust… it’s so hard to choose a photographer for the smaller things, let alone a major event like a wedding! Most people visit me at home in Adel, Leeds, where the infamous Danny Bunny holds “meet & greet” sessions. (Shoe chewing is optional!)
My clients come from all sectors and walks of life… from professional footballers to nurses and from small businesses to schools and large corporations. I want professional photography to be available to anyone who cares about their photographs – if I can’t help you I will try to direct you to someone who can.
I’m not going to claim to be “passionate about photography” because if you go to 10 other photographers websites you’ll find most people say that! As my gran used to say, “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.” So talk to me about what you need and your dreams for what your own photographs will look like. I enjoy living my life behind a camera so that you will have memories to treasure forever.
As well as being a photographer, I’m chair of The Adel Association, a Leeds residents & consumer advice group, and a governor at a local high school.
