I commissioned Oliver for a series of features for Camper Australia magazine in my capacity as Deputy Editor. Oliver has a way of generating unique story ideas with a refreshing, original angle and delivering to brief with ready-to-roll copy.
Two of the stories we have commissioned from Oliver to date drew upon his expansive knowledge of cinema to present film-inspired travel pieces; the other, the product of extensive research, presented Australia's best stargazing destinations. One thing I loved about these articles was their suitability for both print and digital spaces.
Oliver's communication is great from start to finish and he's never struggled to hit a deadline. One of his greatest strengths is ensuring the brief is clearly established and then not wavering from it a bit with the work he delivers. As an editor, it's great to have contributors like Oliver within your arsenal
Sam Richards, former Deputy Editor, Camper Trailer Australia magazine.
"Oliver is very pro-active. His key strengths include his attention to details, hard work ethic, pro-activeness and ability to build strong relationships with our clients. When he started with us, he initially wrote content for Wingspan, over time he progressively took over production of [this digital magazine]. He is also well liked by our team."
Maria Anderson, Managing Director, Sustainable Marketing Services.
"Oliver Pfeiffer was commissioned by me as a freelance feature writer during my year as Editor of Living magazine, a bimonthly lifestyle glossy sold throughout NSW (South West Slopes, Riverina, Southern Tablelands, Central West), Canberra and further afield. I found Oliver to be professional, reliable, thorough and on deadline. He understood the need for relevance to the reader, followed briefs and took direction but equally pitched some great ideas of his own. His film-related features were always well written, and I commissioned Oliver to write for every edition I worked on. I'd work with him again anytime."
Megan Gibson, former Editor, Living magazine.
"As an editor, I have been impressed by Oliver Pfeiffer's strong work ethic and professionalism from the very first time I worked with him.
A reliable and enthusiastic freelancer who consistently produces imaginative and entertaining copy to fit a variety of briefs, Oliver is the complete package as a entertainment writer: a personable interviewer, able to draw the very best out of his subjects, he combines this with breadth of knowledge and a genuine passion for the subject matter that is instantly obvious in the copy.
For a real recommendation, simply pick up any recent issue of SciFiNow and the results speak for themselves."
James Hoare, former Editor in Chief, Imagine Publishing.
"Oliver is a dedicated contributor who writes thoughtful and intelligent articles. He writes consistently well and we are very fortunate to have him on our team."
