Our Mission

At Oliver Doran Studios, our mission is to capture and preserve the essence of life’s milestones through legacy portraits and video interviews. We specialise in creating heirloom-quality products that tell your unique story, ensuring that your memories are cherished for generations to come. Our studio is a sanctuary where artistry meets technology, leveraging state-of-the-art cameras and AI to craft iconic, authentic, and artistic representations of your narrative.

I, Oliver Doran, am dedicated to encapsulating your life’s journey in a way that resonates with your soul. Our sessions are more than just photography; they are therapeutic, empowering, and cathartic experiences, guided by the principles of Ikigai – the Japanese concept of finding one’s purpose. We believe in the power of storytelling to create something that endures, something that will be a testament to your life and legacy. Let’s join hands and create history together, one portrait at a time.

My Story

Hello I’m Oliver Doran. My adventure began in Dubai, where I ran a photography and film production house. Those years were filled with dynamic projects, capturing the essence of brands and working alongside incredible talents. It was a period of growth, creativity, and learning.

However, life had other plans, and amidst the onset of COVID, I found myself returning to my roots in Jersey. This transition marked a new chapter in my career, shifting from commercial photography to the fascinating and rewarding realm of portrait photography.

Brands we’ve worked with

Photography & Film Productions

In Jersey, I collaborate with businesses to elevate their brand visuals. From photographing their teams and spaces to showcasing their products, I’m passionate about crafting images that truly reflect your brand’s authenticity and uniqueness.

My work also extends internationally. With Jersey being just a short journey from London, and having easy access to global destinations like Paris (I’m proudly half French) and Dubai, where I spent a significant part of my career working with top international brands.
