By Mark Richardson

The last few months have given me the chance to look through my photo library. What’s been interesting about this process has been not only rediscovering images from previous trips, but reflecting upon how I captured these images. I am pleased to report that Olympus technology has indeed been central to some of my best photography. Three past trips help illustrate.

A GLYDERAU WILDCAMP

by Grant Hyatt

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!

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.

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.

But by far our favourite aspect of Landscape Month has been watching your images flood into our social media streams. From urban to rural landscapes, and from sunrise to sunset – and even a few in between – it’s been you, our photographers, who’ve been setting the standard.

SHOOTING WINTER STAR TRAILS

SHOOTING WINTER STAR TRAILS

It’s landscape photography month here at Olympus towers – and no, that doesn’t just mean holding your camera the right way round. This week: the most challenging landscapes of all – the night sky. If there’s one thing photographers love to obsess over, it’s light. What kind of light you get at different times of the day, where it’s coming from, what colour it is, and what it does to that neat arrangement of rocks you’ve found to act as the focal point of your image.

HOW TO TRAVEL SAFELY WITH YOUR KIT

HOW TO TRAVEL SAFELY WITH YOUR KIT

Pre-travel jitters? We all get them. Where’s your passport? Where’s your credit card? Does the bank know you’re going away (surprisingly important). And all that’s before you think about your photography kit. A camera and a lens is barely the start of the story: batteries, chargers, backup storage and more should be on your packing checklist.

If there’s one thing photographers know, it’s light. How much of it there is, where it’s coming from, how to shape and modify it, and how to add to it. Understanding how to harness your OLYMPUS’ low-light capabilities can open a whole new world of photography. Turn your lens heavenwards and join us for the beginners’ guide to star trail photography.

NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY: A BEGINNERS’ GUIDE

NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY: A BEGINNERS’ GUIDE

If there’s one expression guaranteed to strike fear into the most experienced photographer’s heart, it’s ‘night photography’. After all, if photography is the study and exposure of light, how can you find decent pictures when light is completely absent?
