"I would like to say a few words on what a great experience the whole photoshoot was. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed. I dislike having my photograph taken and wasn't looking forward to standing in front of a camera at all. The minute I walked into the studio you made me feel at ease. I have receive fantastic compliments about my photographs. Who doesn't like hearing "that is a great photograph of you"? "Thank you for the experience and I will definitely recommend you to friends, family and business associates".
"Having never experienced being in front of a lense and trying to be "natural" I was able to relax as soon as I stepped in the studio with Oliver. I never felt awkward or out of place and I especially felt like I was being, me. He gave direction well to a total beginner like myself but the results were just awesome! I was nervous to look at these honest images but when I did I poured over them and could not love the final images more! For anyone artist/performer/entertainer looking to expand their portfolio I would highly recommend Oliver Berlin as your go to photographer. He is genuine, professional and extremely efficient at his art!"
"Of course, it is true that many people feel shy in front of the camera - I have to say I certainly have never liked the feeling. That was until I spent time with Oliver! For the first time i felt sexy! Self assured! From the first meeting to discuss the shoot I knew he was the right person for us. Oliver Berlin is more than a photographer; he's an artist! His work is thoughtful, beautiful, edgy!! "Kartika Franks- Mama K and the Big Love.
"I highly recommend a photo shoot with Oliver, lots of fun during, and great results! Thank you." Elise Taylor.
"When it comes to head shots, I have never ever enjoyed the experience,until now. Oliver made me feel so welcome the moment I stepped into the studio, he gave me the chance to tell him exactly what i was looking for and what I haven't liked about head shots in the past.
The shoot was so enjoyable and fun, I got the chance to change tops and hair styles as many times as i liked.
By the time I got home I already had an email sent to me with all of the photo proofs i could choose from, I emailed Oliver the photos I wanted and by the following morning I had all 3 head shots in my email. Not only amazing photos which I'm very happy with but also very fast. Thanks again Oliver."
"Normally confident, for some reason I always dissolve into a self-conscious puddle of awkwardness when having my photo taken. Not so with Oliver. Friendly, relaxed and totally professional, he made the whole process so easy. Not only was it fun, I ended up with some great photos. Thanks Oliver, you’re a pro!"Andrew McPhail- Acting head- ScreenTas.
"Oliver's ability to create a relaxed atmosphere in his inspiring studio is impressive. He spent time getting to know me and what I was looking for, chatting about anything and everything, listening to my ideas and suggesting creative ideas of his own. He also responded positively to my stream of requests for cups of tea - always a good thing!" Anita Cairns- singer.
"Oliver handled my comedy promo shoot with exactly the same easy manner as his did my art nude which made me feel comfortable straight away.
He understands what looks good and what doesn't and has very high attention to detail both behind the camera and in editing.
He is an extremely high standard of photographer and I would be happy going back to him time and time again." Le Fay Ella Morgan- Comedian/ performer.
"Thankyou so much for making my daughter, Jessica, feel comfortable! By providing a wonderful space where she could have fun, it allowed her to simply be herself...result, great afternoon, fabulous images. I truly believe the images will assist/support Jessica in furthering her creative endeavors! Whether it be Acting for Stage or Screen, Contemporary Dance or Singing! " Fiona Lloyd.
"Far from sitting impatiently in a chair while some disinterested guy with a camera took a few head shots, working with Oliver was like meeting a new friend. I was really impressed by the importance Oliver placed on understanding me as a person and an actor before the shoot. This, along with his artistic sensibility, inspiring studio and faultless professionalism informed some amazing photographs"- Matt Stolp- actor/ writer.
'I was looking for professional, classy and beautiful headshots. Oliver provided these at a great price as well as professionalism and experience. I really relaxed into the shoot and had great fun! Thank you Oliver xx' -Bene McGeown.

"My partner & I always thought it would be fun to get some boudoir photo's done of me. We didn't want trashy stuff so we booked a shoot with Oliver. I was very nervous but Oliver was so professional & friendly that I soon relaxed & really enjoyed the shoot. We LOVE the photos! It cost less than we were expecting & it really spiced up our relationship!! Thank you Oliver!!" -Elizabeth.
"Oliver is an amazing photographer, extremely professional and creative. Easy to work with, friendly, funny with a huge heart and a huge passion for this work. Highly recommended!! We did a workshop together in his amazing studio in the center of Hobart and was a success! More creative workshop coming soon!!!" -Romi.
"Any actor thinking of getting head shots done would do themselves a great favor by visiting Oliver." -Franz.
"An amazing loft studio on Elizabeth St with a relaxed and talented photographer. Very happy!" -Aimee.
"I had the pleasure of visiting Oliver in his very funky (and very central) studio last week. I normally hate getting my headshot done but Oliver managed to make me feel comfortable and relaxed straight away. I'm very happy with the result and can't recommend him highly enough!" - Karissa.
"It was a pleasure doing the shoot with Oliver. His experience, skill and artistic eye made the whole experience easy and fun. Highly recommended!" -Fiona.
"Forget the selfies and the friend who's good with a smartphone camera. Oliver is a properly trained professional who knows how to capture your best look. I needed to update my headshot for the profile page of my new website. However, I really didn't want to look like a corporate suit lollygagging in a tie and collar. Nor did I want to appear too playful. Through experience, skill and artistic flair, Ollie knew just how to strike the right balance: creative and credible. I am very happy with the result." -Stuart.
