Olympus OMD Workshops

The Olympus OMD system is incredibly versatile and feature packed making some aspects of landscape photography very easy. For the beginner it can seem daunting with the complicated menu system and range of customization options. And the manual is less than helpful.

An Olympus Workshop will help you not only understand the features and benefits of your system, it will help you get better images. The same as other Workshops with inspiring locations to visit, we will also concentrate on setting your OMD up to suit you, explore the menus and features, and

Having used Olympus exclusively since 2014 and rebuilding this website with 90% of the images taken with OMD’s I know the system well and what it is capable of. During a Workshop we will explore the unique features so that you master your OMD, allowing you to be more creative, competent, and see your ‘keeper’ rate increase dramatically.

Olympus OMD EM1 mk2
I will be running workshops to help you get the best from this Pro body to take the pain out the steep learning curve. Learn the unique features creatively, how to set it up to suit you, and how it can benefit you. If you are thinking of upgrading, try it out first on a Workshop.
How Long Is A Workshop?
Workshops are full days and normally around 10 hours or longer if needed. Winter months with short days will restrict daylight shooting, although it's a chance to make the most of sunrise, sunset and low light. Summer months allow for shooting into late evenings. If you're not local but would still like a workshop with me I can travel within a reasonable distance, normally no more than 2 hours. Please note expenses for fuel will be required.
