PHOTOGRAPHING PRIMATES IN UGANDA WITH OLYMPUS KIT

By Robertino Patilea

Last year I had to think long and hard about whether to stick with my 10-year old Olympus and upgrade, or whether to move on to another system. If there’s one trip where you will absolutely feel you have made the right decision in going for a light camera system, it’s trekking primates in Uganda. I experienced this first-hand in June 2021.

It’s that fantastic time of year again when we can set sail for Skomer Island in West Wales, UK, one of my favourite places, open once more for feathery fun business (other islands are available). So, I thought this an opportune time to give a little guidance on shooting puffs, to anyone lucky enough to visit.

WILDLIFE ON THE CHALK STREAMS

WILDLIFE ON THE CHALK STREAMS

By Dick Hawkes

Over the last couple of years, I have been taking photographs with an OM-D E-M1 for my book Chalk Streams – A Unique Environment Worth Conserving. As well as showing the beauty of the landscape, an important theme of the book is to highlight the rich variety of wildlife supported by the chalk streams.

CHALLENGE YOURSELF BY GOING SMALL

CHALLENGE YOURSELF BY GOING SMALL

By Andrew Turpin

Like a lot of photographers, I tend to fall into the trap of searching for that epic shot. I’ll trek for miles in the hope of finding a unique view, some rare wildlife, or that magical moment when the light just seems to come alive. All of that is fantastic, of course, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but sometimes it’s better to think small.

A RUSH OF WINGS: PHOTOGRAPHING A BRITISH WILDLIFE SPECTACULAR

A RUSH OF WINGS: PHOTOGRAPHING A BRITISH WILDLIFE SPECTACULAR

By Jules Cox

As part of a project documenting the UK’s most spectacular wildlife events, I wanted to capture Norfolk’s high tide roost whirling wader spectacular. The North Norfolk coast and the Wash provide some of the best year-round bird watching in the UK: a wonderful opportunity to watch thousands of waders moving from the vast mudflats of the Wash to the gravel pit lagoons where the birds roost.

MAKING THE SWITCH: HOW GOOD IS THE E-M1 Mark  III?

MAKING THE SWITCH: HOW GOOD IS THE E-M1 Mark III?

By Mark Fuller

To say I am happy I made the switch would be a massive understatement. I feel my photography has gone to a new level with this kit. My images feel so much better, sharper, more vibrant. The M.Zuiko lenses are so good. The system is lighter and much easier to hand carry all day, even with the 300mm F4 PRO and an MC-14 fitted.

THE OLYMPUS MIRRORLESS REVOLUTION

THE OLYMPUS MIRRORLESS REVOLUTION

By Rebecca Nason

30th January this year, a big day for me. With more than slight relief, but also a fair share of bond-breaking anxiety, I put down my Nikon gear after more than 20 years and enthusiastically raised my new lightweight pro set up – the Olympus OM-D E-M1X coupled with the 300mm F4 PRO lens and 1.4 converter.

HELLO ISOLATION NATION!

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.
