5 GREAT OLYMPUS PHOTOGRAPHERS ON INSTAGRAM
Camera: Olympus PEN E-P5
Designer Nick Alfie has, as you’d expect, a wonderful eye for lines, shapes and colours. The images he produces with his trusty Olympus PEN E-P5 show off great attention to the art of composition, utilising the square Instagram format in creative ways. There’s a mix of architecture, candid portraiture, abstract work and, of course, a few obligatory sunsets. (Little known Instagram fact: if you don’t post at least one sunset every three months they close your account. Ask around).
Camera: Olympus OM-D
Olympus ambassador Jay McLaughlin is almost always hard at work on his latest magazine or fashion shoot, and his Instagram provides a great glimpse behind the scenes of his most recent projects. One of the reasons Jay said he fell in love with the OM-D series was its vintage feel, and you can see this reflected in the way his stylish images hark back to a classic era.
Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M1
Lion + Goose, or ‘John’ as he is presumably known to his friends and family, has amassed an impressive following with his beautifully tranquil imagery of shorelines and skylines, shot predominantly on an OM-D E-M1. His images are fine examples of effective simplicity and the idea that less is more, but be warned – looking through his feed will give you a powerful urge to duck out of work early and head to the beach.
Camera: Olympus OM-D
Jaakko Kahilaniemi is a photography student from Finland, and his Instagram landscapes taken on the OM-D system really capture the feel of the country – you can practically feel the cold of his snowy scenes! He’s as proficient at spotting little details as he is at capturing impressive vistas, and it looks as though he has a bright future career waiting for him.
Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II
Tine Poppe hails from Norway, and before you ask yes her feed features plenty of shots of the Northern Lights. There’s plenty more to see however, and her recent acquisition of an OM-D E-M5 Mark II means there’s no doubt even more on the way. Landscapes, seascapes, travel portraits, street shots – Tine’s mix of imagery has won her an impressive selection of photographic accolades, and with good reason. Go see.
