A GLYDERAU WILDCAMP

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!

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

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.

PARIS TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

PARIS TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

On a summer’s morning at the unholy hour of 05:45, our group of 20 intrepid photographers gathered outside the Eurostar check-in at St. Pancras International station. We were heading to Paris for a day of photography and exploration guided by the inimitable Martina Govindraj. After passing through security and fortifying ourselves with strong coffee and croissants it was all aboard the 07:01 London to Paris express. A couple of hours later we were disembarking at Gare du Nord and having a briefing about the day ahead.
