Aloha, I'm Gavin Oliva, a photographer originally from the tropical islands of Hawaii, but now based in Japan. My passion for fast cars started at a very young age and progressively grew with age. So it was only fitting that my love of photography would lead me trackside, shooting motorsports.

I currently cover many series such as D1 GP, Formula Drift, Super Taikyu, Super Formula, Asia Lemans Series, Super GT, and FIA WEC. I also serve as contributing editor for Dsport Magazine in America.

My work takes me on assignment to such places as the US, England, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, France, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, China, Mexico, Qatar, Bahrain, and Hong Kong. And of course to nearly all parts of Japan. There's no better feeling than to be able to combine my passion of photography, sports, and travel.


In addition to my race coverage, I am available for assignments here in Japan and abroad.

If you are interested on working together, please contact me and let’s discuss your project with more detail.
