Every day is Earth day

Earth Day is a time to reflect on environmental conservation and the importance of protecting our planet. As OM SYSTEM Ambassadors, photographers use their skills to capture the beauty of nature and raise awareness, providing inspiration through their art. Let's celebrate the power of photography to create a better world this Earth Day!

Pete Burford

"For me, macro photography was a portal to a smaller world which the planet depends on. This gave me a greater appreciation for the little guys such as insects and spiders, because without them the planet wouldn't survive. We having flying insects that pollinate the crops that we eat, we have spiders that get rid of unwanted pests like mosquitos and horseflies and tiny springtails and woodlouse that keep healthy soil and breakdown rotting trees and bark. These guys work in the background beneath our feet and with my OM system camera gear, I can explore these diverse creatures and show them at life size, so we can get a better understanding towards them. Arthropods get a bad reputation and I want to change people's perspective on them, through my photography"

Kirsten Holst

"Nature to me embodies beauty, harmony, and resilience. Birds, in particular, symbolise freedom and grace in the wild. Bird photography lets me freeze fleeting moments, capturing their colours, patterns, and behaviours. Through the lens, I connect intimately with nature, finding inspiration and a sense of responsibility to cherish and protect our natural world."

Lisa Michele Burns

"Nature has the power to make you feel so small, yet so immersed and comforted in its beauty. When I’m out photographing, I try to take the time to be aware of my surroundings, noticing the sounds, textures, or elements and how they’re impacting the scene. I like to walk away not only with images, but experiences, like feeling the salty air on my face after it’s whipped up ocean swells, listening as birdsong blends with rustling leaves from a gentle breeze, or watching as sand swirls across dunes and storm clouds are shaped over mountain peaks by gusty conditions."

Louise Nordström

"One of my favorite elements in nature is the moon. There is something mysterious and magic with it and I love all its different phases, specially the full moon. Since it only happens once a month and you have to have clear skies, it becomes both challenging and so much fun to try capture it in different ways each month. Last month I woke up early to catch the beautiful moonset over the sea while trying to catch the seagulls flying in front of the moon."

  • First Impression of the M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20

    Two years ago, if you’d asked me if I was interested in using a 2x converter the answer would have been an unequivocal “no”. I’d had a few bad experiences when I was using my old DSLR system, resulting in poor image quality and unreliable autofocus. When asked to test the new Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20, I was tentatively excited. I knew I had complete confidence in Olympus equipment, but it was impossible...

  • Pro Capture ‘Back to the future’

    A blessing for action photography, a tool that makes fast-paced photography much more relaxed and accurate or simply a great feature that is literally ahead of its time! These thoughts, and nothing else, continue to run through my mind when I take photographs like they did in the ‘olden days’. As a nature photographer, the times of relying on my reaction and the chance factor alone are over. As are the times of extreme...
