Olivia Bennett, photographer
If you have any questions or are interested in collaborating on a project, please feel free to contact me.
I was born and raised in Orlando, FL, picking up my first camera at age 9 to photograph nature, horses, and pretty much anything I found interesting. Over the years and throughout school, photography remained a part of my life, evolving with me but remaining more of hobby as I pursued design at the University of Central Florida. After graduating with a BFA in 2011, I landed my first corporate design position in the coffee and restaurant industry. It took a year and a half of office work and a two week trip to Thailand before I realized the importance of photography in my life. The most enjoyable days of my corporate position were the ones where I was allowed to leave the confines of the office to photograph the stores, the farms, the food, the coffee, the chefs, the people that made everything happen. So, I followed what I love.
Traveling, being out and meeting people who are making a difference or trying something new, and being able to help bring their journey to others through photography is what excites me. I'm always looking forward to the next adventure.
