Olive Tree Pruning

I have a Manzanillo Olive "bush" that has been in the ground for 3 years. It is now about 8' x 8' and in need of pruning for shape.

What is the best way to prune an Olive the first time? It is on the hill above the patio and so needs pruning for that aspect. Do I prune out the middle and leave the long-wand-like branches? Anyway, any help will be much appreciated.
