Calling all photographers! Join Olympus Ambassador Mike Inkley and Real Tennis British #1 Ben Taylor-Matthews as they serve up this exclusive photography masterclass, in association with nationwide photo specialists – London Camera Exchange!
Attendees will have the unique opportunity to capture Real Tennis professional Ben Taylor-Matthews as he takes part in a live match. Working from the sidelines you will get to shoot plenty of dynamic images with the latest Olympus equipment, taking advantage of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II’s innovative Pro Capture mode.
If you’re not sure what Real Tennis is, it’s in a completely different ball park to Lawn Tennis! Played only indoors, Real Tennis balls are handmade and solid like a cricket ball, and hit with wooden rackets. To compete you have to be athletic, dextrous, cerebral and super fit. Ben joined the Leamington Tennis Court club as Head Professional in September 2014. He is currently ranked number 6 in the world and is still climbing to the upper echelons of the game. He is a US Open Doubles winner and in 2014 reached his first Open Singles Final at the Australian Open.
With expert coaching from Mike and the Olympus team at every step of the way, this exclusive event has been designed to ensure you will make the most of every opportunity with tips and tricks, support on camera settings and post processing advice.
Non-Olympus users are welcome to attend – so if you’re thinking about ditching your old DSLR make sure to take this opportunity to meet your match in the stunning OM-D EM-1 Mark II and PRO Lens series. The Olympus team will have PRO level cameras and lenses to borrow and use on the day!
Please note: The event starts at 17:30 and meeting point is the LCE Leamington Spa branch, after which you will make your way to Leamington Tennis Court Club.
