Ollier Photography has been a proud part of Macclesfield since 1964. In 2014, we celebrated our 50th anniversary (Check out this article from Macclesfield Express to find out more). Through 50 years of dedication paired with tons of fun and passion; Ollier Photography has proudly become a well-known name in our lovely town.
In a short series of upcoming blogs, we invite you to travel back in time with us as we explore the history of Ollier Photography. From our very beginnings in the 60’s, our family business has come a long way and we would love to share our journey with you.
Founded by Brian Ollier, our very first studio was opened on Sunderland Street, Macclesfield, on December 12, 1964.
Following many great years at this location, we moved to Palace Yard on Mill Street. As you can see by the before and after below, it was quite a project to set up our studio here! However, with a lot of hard work, Palace Yard became Ollier Photography’s home for many years.

Over the years, Brian Ollier’s distinctive style of close up, natural portraits has been passed down to his son, Joe Ollier and Matt Webb who trained with Brian for 14 years. In 2013, we moved to Queen Victoria Street in the heart of Macclesfield; where Joe and Matt continue to run the family business.
We hope you enjoyed taking this journey into Ollier Photography’s past with us. Keep up-to-date with our blog to see future snippets of our history; as we continue to be a proud part of the Macclesfield community.
