Ned Oliver

multimedia journalist


I have been reporting for newspapers in Virginia and Massachusetts since 2008. I currently live and work in Richmond, Va, where I cover City Hall for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, take pictures and fly drones.

You can reach me via email at and on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.


You can find my author page at the Times-Dispatch here.

I've recently written about an annual cash payment the city of Richmond makes to the NFL's third richest team, firefighters braving a fireball to save a baby and a weird epic about a very intense search for a lost dog.


I shoot documentary style photos and make portraits with an emphasis on story telling.


I am FAA certified to fly drones comercially.
