Ollie West launched his TV career with Channel 9 as a cameraman editor in Queensland, Australia. After 5 years with the network, Ollie decided to embark on Europe with only a back pack, and what he found through travel was how small this world of ours really is. Based in the UK and Belgium Ollie worked with several major networks where he covered global events from Tom Cruises wedding to documentary’s in Antarctica and even dodging a few stray bullets along the way in hostile environments. Conceding that Australia was the place for him and his young family, Ollie moved back to Melbourne in 2007 where he continues to freelance to this day. In Australia, Ollie works on several Television Productions, TVC’s, and corporate projects. Internationally Ollie still retains work on some marque events such as the Tour de France and Footballs World Cup. Ollie has developed a great skill set for all production requirements with his filming and post production, and more recently his producing and directing. With over 17 years of experience in broadcast and online media Ollie West heads up Fotomedia Melbourne.
From humble beginnings of writing, directing and shooting short films in high school and uni I some how stumbled onto the set of Scooby Doo
which opened the door to many great adventures in the wonderful world of Hollywood film making. I walked the red carpet for Moulin Rouge and assisted on Big Brother still shoots. My hand even made it on the big screen in a horror film. I’ve been fortunate enough to get up close and personal to Pete Murray on a film clip directed by Linc. I also worked on a couple of kids programs… never work with kids or animals! opps! After a couple of years of shooting and editing my own projects (which often included children and animals!) I now find myself taking stills, filming and editing with the creative team at Fotomedia.
