Oliver’s journey to the Smoky Mountains

Last year wildlife and landscape photographer Oliver Hellowell (and My Perspective winner) went on his first overseas assignment to The Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, USA, supported by the Tennessee Department Of Tourist Development.

Film maker Simon Weitzman accompanied Oliver and his family for part of the trip and made this beautiful film that follows Oliver on his journey. It gives us a glimpse into the way Oliver sees the world and what inspires his photography.

We’re very grateful to Simon, Oliver and his family for sharing this film with us. You can watch it on YouTube here.

In 2018 Oliver won the My Perspective photographic competition.

Anyone can enter, whatever type of photography you enjoy. Find out more about how to take part in this year’s competition on our website.
