TALENTED photographer Oliver Hellowell will be bringing his amazing annual exhibition back to Westonzoyland later this month.

Oliver, a 23-year-old who has Down’s Syndrome, is achieving his dream of becoming a professional landscape and wildlife photographer, and has seen his profile rise significantly over the past 12 months or so.

Appearing on BBC’s The One Show in January and on BBC’s Countryfile in March he also published his book ‘Oliver’s Birds’ which was so popular it sold out after four months and had to be reprinted.

He also enjoyed a full double page spread in the Daily Telegraph and then later won ‘best photographic travel feature’ at the UK/USA Travel Media awards in London.

He enjoys a following of over 66,000 fans on Facebook and receives orders for prints, cards and books to his website from right across the globe.

Oliver, who grew up in Westonzoyland, has a particularly strong following in the USA and is desperately hoping to be able to be sponsored to visit and photograph more of the country next year.

His annual exhibition will be in Westonzoyland again this year and he has his fingers crossed that it will achieve a record breaking attendance.

“I really want all my fans to come,” says Oliver, “I hope they will love it.”

Oliver’s Annual Exhibition and Sale takes place at the Old School in Westonzoyland over the weekend of Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1, from 10am to 4pm.

Visitors will be able to meet Oliver and enjoy an inspiring display of photography.

As well as more canvasses than ever before, there will also be framed prints and loose mounted prints, calendars, greetings cards, and other items all available for sale, as well as Oliver’s new book which he will sign.
