My name is Olivier Hero Dressen; I am a Belgium photographer and director currently based in Shanghai. Represented in more than five countries, my dream is to create works which resonate with wider audiences; I love to tell stories, give deep feelings and open imaginary worlds and resonate with people around the world.

Your Story

I started to draw since I am a kid and never stopped creating so far, I had the chance to work with amazing people through my career and achieve many of my dreams, but yet, I still want to do more, direct my first feature, do music videos with the most prominent artist on the planet, shooting photography in the most unusual places and portraits of very creative and exciting mind of today's.
