Our Story

Unlock A New You

Hi my name is Oliver.

People are complex, fascinating beings. There’s so many layers to us. Depths sometimes we never find. I love to unravel those layers with my camera and unveil you in new ways. The luxurious advertising and editorial portrait photography I deliver leaves red carpet magic open to everyone – including you.

Portraits That Transform & Awaken

High-end, stunning, feel-good, whether it’s editorial photography, a family portrait, a corporate headshot or personal branding, a photoshoot with me will leave you transformed. Awakening sides of you, you never knew existed, I dig deep into your story to understand the essence of who you are.

Where Everyone Is A VIP

From Sarah Jessica Parker to Robert De Niro, the Prince of Bahrain, Roger Federer, Cosmopolitan and Haute Living, over the last 15 years, my profession has taken me around the globe.

Though I’ve captured images for leading international brands, inspirational organisations and some of the most recognisable faces on the planet, at Oliver Doran Studios everyone is a VIP.

Stunning Yet Relatable Portraits

At Oliver Doran Studios, our mission is to capture beautiful, timeless images that tell authentic stories. Recording special moments and significant milestones on film enables us to create enduring legacies that are priceless.

In celebration, our portrait photoshoots are unforgettable experiences. Whether it’s a maternity shoot, entrepreneur headshot or business portrait, your VIP experience includes everything from hair and makeup to gentle guidance, encouragement, lots of smiles and even a glass of bubbly.

The Red Carpet Experience

Leaving you feeling enlivened, empowered and confident in who you are, our priority is to ensure you feel safe, relaxed and comfortable. Our portrait studio in St. Helier is a beautiful space and our team are highly, experienced, sought-after industry professionals.

As someone who hates having their photograph taken (yes, really!), the foundation of the superior, personalised portrait photography services I provide have always been about how you feel. From the moment you step into our Jersey studio (we can also come to you), I want you to feel like an old friend.

Like so many of us, I’ve always struggled with seeing myself in photos. That was part of the driving force which led me to unravel the psychology of a portrait. It was here that I truly found my flow. Transforming how I thought about light, posing and the emotional experience of having a photo taken, I was inspired to shape The Oliver Doran Red Carpet Experience.

World-Renowned Advertising and Portrait Photographer

Today, my VIP portrait photography experiences can be enjoyed in numerous ways, both here at the studio and on location with you anywhere in the world.

From my portrait photography services for businesses, families, creatives and individuals to my photoshoot and exhibition events, online store and advertising photography services there are are lots of ways to work with me.

Whether you want a stunning black and white portrait (my fave), a compelling commercial portrait or a divine family portrait, send a message and let’s unlock new layers of you.
