TIME TO REFLECT AND REFOCUS

By Marcus Clackson

HELLO ISOLATION NATION!

By Rob Cottle

Since moving house a few years back, I’ve run a small project of photographing birds through the double-glazed office (mostly pigeons, but I love pigeons) or kitchen windows and in these weird hermit-like times of self-isolation, I thought it a good time to write a blog about it.

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR PORTRAITURE IN ISOLATION

For anyone that specialises in photographing people, quarantine can present a challenge. That doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t practice and hone your craft though, so I thought I’d share a few tips for photography at home.

IN THE TIME OF CORONAVIRUS

IN THE TIME OF CORONAVIRUS

by Peter Dench

Coronavirus has confined and compromised our practice, our passion. Photographers are limited to what is immediately accessible. A fair amount of my time as a freelancer is sat alone trying to think of ideas for projects and things to do, I may have an advantage. It’s time to put away the passport and journey to inner space, to the centre of our lives.

Wild camps on Glyder Fach have provided me with way more than my fair share of spectacles and phenomena, from faint Northern Lights, mystical Noctilucent Clouds, a crystal clear Milky Way, vibrant sunsets and sunrises, but I’ve never spent a wintry night up there…until now!

ROMAN BATHS PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

ROMAN BATHS PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

by Gavin Hoey

One of the many amazing things about being an ambassador with Olympus UK is getting the opportunity to work in locations that I would never be able to access myself. So when Olympus asked if I’d be interested in running a portrait session during a low light workshop at the Roman Baths in Bath, I jumped at the chance.

ESCAPE WITH SEASCAPES

ESCAPE WITH SEASCAPES

by Tom Ormerod

My camera has to be able to stand up to the elements, take the occasional wave splash and be resistant to sand and grime. The OM-D E-M1 Mark II is perfect for the job, class leading weather sealing (when paired with an Olympus M.Zuiko PRO lens) in a small lightweight body, great for those long walks to secluded coves.

JURASSIC COAST VIEWS, ROCKS & STARS

by Tom Ormerod
At the end of August, I had the pleasure of running my first workshop for Olympus on the wonderful Jurassic Coast in my home county of Dorset. Olympus had been fantastic and helped get all the admin sorted and the people booked in. We had a possible 11 hours of activity planned and I couldn’t wait to get going.
