Olivia Sari-Goerlach is a photographer with a passion for capturing light + shadows, specializing in portraiture, documentary & food photography along with food styling skills. Having a background in graphic design and photojournalism has influenced her photographic aesthetic. Her career started in 2010 when she worked at a portraiture studio in Sydney where she fell in love with portraiture and studio lighting. Based in Singapore between 2011-2016, she continued to practice her photography and took on creative projects with a keen interest in collaboration with other creatives. She was a Canon Pixma ambassador for Singapore in a Canon Asia Campaign that highlighted her work in food photography.

OSG Photography acknowledges that it occupies the shared, traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples, the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), scəw̓aθən (Tsawwassen) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, and has been stewarded by them since time immemorial. Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over in any way. I acknowledge those who have come before us with sincere gratitude and honor - the First Peoples that have been on this land for thousands of years, and the enduring presence of Indigenous communities on this land. OSG is committed to visually capture Indigenous personalities + stories through documentary and portrait photography in the near future, to collaborate with Indigenous creatives and organizations to share their stories through the lens of a foreigner residing in these lands.
