Im a freelance Director that moved out to this beautiful island for a slower pace of life filled with coconuts, surf and sun. Over the last two years I've gained a significant amount of experience and knowledge about the people, culture and local landscape as my work has allowed me to travel the island and connect with the local community on various projects. Sri Lanka is a magical place and I would love to share my perspective with you.

Where you'll be

We will be on the most picturesque beach in Sri Lanka. Hiriketiya is a beautiful horse shoe bay where the jungle meets the beach. Making it the perfect backdrop for your holiday surf content and much more. Surf-able all year round with two waves available, for both beginners and intermediates, Hiriketiya is the perfect spot to surf and chill. Hopefully you'll bump into a few turtles too. And, If you do then I'll capture that too.

Photo session with Ollie was a cool experience. He was fully present, patient, helpful and guided me throughout the session. As a result, I got many beautiful surf pictures. We had a good time with lots of laughs and that made the whole session fun and easy. Now, when I look back to this experience, all these pictures bring me such good memories. Surely recommend!

We had such a blast hanging with Ollie. He curated a personal experience based on our skill level and the type of photographs we wanted. The photos came out great and captured the fun we were having out on the water. We highly recommend Ollie!

This was an awesome airbnb experience!! 100% recommend. Ollie went above and beyond to capture incredible photos and to make us feel welcome in the beautiful Hiriketiya area. His photography is exceptional and we were so happy to have awesome surf photos from our trip. Ollie is a great guy and we had a lot of fun doing this experience with him! He is professional and easy to communicate / plan with through the airbnb app. We'd like to do this experience again next time we visit!
