Father and Daughter


This is David Oliver, AIPP Grand Master of Photography, and his daughter Clare.

Together, these fantastic people are make up the father-and-daughter team of David Oliver Photography.

During this session, both were posing in David's Hunter Valley gallery during the delivery of a portrait and landscape photography weekend workshop.

However, to me, this shot is more than a "workshop shot", as it depicts a genuine, warm moment of the father-daughter bond which exists between David and Clare.  I was fortunate enough to have captured this fleeting glimpse of emotion during the otherwise clinical business of delivering a workshop.

Both Olivers are well known for their work behind the camera, but in this shot their work in front of the camera is as equally powerful to my eyes.
