Have you been looking to try out Olympus kit? Here is a great opportunity to get hands on with an E-M1X or E-M1 Mark II, plus a range of PRO M.Zuiko lenses – and to help out on the day we have Andy Rouse.

Andy is one of the leading wildlife photographers in the UK and you could have the pleasure of spending the day with him and Olympus at Slimbridge Wetlands Centre.

WWT Slimbridge is one of nine wetland centres across the UK, founded by Sir Peter Scott in 1946. Now a renowned reserve for waterbirds set in 120 acres. The new £6.2m visitor centre houses a wildlife art gallery, The Hanson Discovery Centre, the Waterside Restaurant, a cinema and the Sloane Observation Tower (providing the best view of the Severn in the whole of Gloucestershire). Wild swans from Russia visit every winter and all six types of flamingos delight the crowds during the summer months.

Andy’s reputation for incredible wildlife images from across the globe is well documented and Olympus UK have teamed up with him for an action packed day …and best of all, photography tuition from Andy himself. The day will start with Andy giving a presentation on his recent expeditions and his use of the flagship Olympus E-M1X and Pro range of lenses. He has photographed and run workshops at Slimbridge for many years so he is perfectly placed to show us around!

There will be tech advice and hands on help by Olympus Technical Specialists and a macro area for the break out groups too! Cameras and lenses are available for the day so make sure you let us know what you want to try on registration and we’ll try our best to accommodate requests!
