| Art in the Frame > Artists > Oliver Doran
Oliver’s body of work is broad – ranging from portraits to travel and, more recently, some metallic Jersey landscapes which were exhibited in the “3x3 Art in a Frame” exhibition at Harbour Gallery in February 2008.
In March 2008 Oliver was awarded The Jersey Evening Post Trophy for Best Sports Image for a photograph taken at a boxing match at Fort Regent . The Jersey Eisteddfod also awarded Oliver with the PCS Trophy for its Special Theme shot, Best Early Morning Photograph.
Although Oliver occasionally loses himself in graphic arts and web design, photography is still what gets him out of bed mornings. “The more you learn about camera work, the more you see things differently. You become aware of details that you’d never have noticed before. And that’s very addictive.”
Oliver runs a website for Freelance Fine-Art Travel Photographer’s called www.fotoTrip.co.uk and is always on the look-out for talented photographers… fotoTrip receives hundreds of applications every month, only a few are selected to upload their material.
“For me,” concludes Oliver, “photography has been an enlightening journey which has brought me closer to art than I’d ever dared to imagine. And it sure beats bookkeeping.”
