About Jacques Olivier
Hi my name is Jacques Olivier and I am an aspiring landscape and travel photographer originally from South Africa but now living in New Zealand. I am married to a wonderful wife with whom I have two amazing daughters. Currently I work full-time in the IT industry, but have had a dream of becoming a full-time landscape and travel photographer for a very long time.
I remember being interested in photography since I was a child. Although not my first experience, my passion started with landscapes photography. The allure of grand vistas and majestic mountains bathed on golden light has always been something I find inspiring and alluring. The idea of capturing a place as well as its people and culture however is what has taken my passion for photography to a whole new level.
I also love sharing my experience and knowledge with others, so I decided to start this site where I can teach and inspire others to not only capture their own travels but also to follow their dreams. Follow along as I document my travels, share my thoughts and teach you how I take and edit photographs.
