With his father both an artist and lecturer in the history of art, Oliver Eade was immersed in the visual arts as a child. Edward Eade would practice his lectures from the golden rule and composition to Botticelli and Van Gogh as Oliver and his sister sat cross-legged on the floor soaking it up. When he discovered he had no talent with the paint brush himself, Oliver felt himself drawn to photography. After retiring from hospital medicine, he joined a camera club and took a diploma in photography. He has published books on street and travel photography, given talks on various aspects of photography and judges for photographic competitions.
Oliver is also a published writer (www.olivereadebooks.org) and award-winning author of novels for adults, young adults and young (middle grade) readers.
