Oliver Haupt grew up in Cologne. He studied Arts and Photography. Before becoming a photographer, Oliver developed his career as a creative in various advertising agencies. Oliver's work was recently selected and awarded at the Luerzer's Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers, at PX3 Prix de la Photographie in Paris and at AOP London Photographers Award, AFP Barcelona, IPA, Cannes, El Sol, Anuncios and Luerzer's Archive 200 Best Digital Artists.
Oliver ranks over the last 5 years in the 12th position of the Luerzer's Archive International Ranking. His photos where exhibited alongside Les Rencontres d'Arles and he took part at Photoespaña in 2013 and he will do again this year.
His highly varied and original body of work covers a wide range of themes and subjects, from natural works to highly stylised and aesthetically complex pieces. He comments on this spread of different work: ¨If I would only shoot natural and sensitive children photos, it would loose the depth behind. Life has a lot of contrast and it is too fascinating to limit yourself on one area. And what applies personally for me is true for my
pictures. I am sure that my thrill for a 2nd world war jet
makes my sensitive children shots even more sensitive. And vice versa.¨ The magazine Art Jobs recently published Oliver's interview about this. Oliver is passionate about his work and this is evident in the unbroken
dedication given to every project from the initial stages to the final result. Oliver currently lives and works in London and Madrid, dedicating himself to his personal work and commercial projects.
