Introducing Oliver Asselin Photography

Olivier Asselin grew up in Eastern Quebec, Canada, where he studied and worked in the IT field for four years before dedicating himself to photography.  He graduated in 2004 from the Western Academy of Photography in my hometown, Victoria, British Columbia, and spent the following year working in the newspaper industry in Western Canada and Morocco.
Based in Africa since 2005, he spent four years in Accra, Ghana and one year in Dakar, Senegal, covering the region for development organizations and editorial clients. Now based in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, he continues to work throughout the continent for clients such as UNICEF, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the New York Times, and the Associated Press.
