Get to know these amazing women photographers

International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. One of the missions of IWD 2023 is to celebrate the work of women creatives and elevate their visibility – so we've caught up with some of our female Ambassadors and OM SYSTEM team members around the world to highlight their photography and incredible creative skills.

"I’m a passionate Dutch photographer with a great love for the tiny subjects in nature; insects, moss, mushrooms, snails, flowers, raindrops, … It doesn’t have to be extraordinary to impress or amaze me. The real adventure in macrophotography lies beneath our feet, under the leaves and branches, between the flowers and the moss. It’s in the little details of nature. Being in nature with my camera and macrolens instantly stills my mind and brings me in a state of flow and calmness. "

Julia Wunsch

"In my network I have many great women who inspire me over and over to question my own limits, to try new things and to break through certain stereotypes. With my work as a photographer in the rather male-dominated outdoor sector and also with my volunteer community @swissmountaingirls, I would like to make my contribution to seeing more women on the mountain in general and also specifically behind the camera in the future."

Instagram

Kaisa Peltomäki

"I love to show some artistic point of view in my photography. One of my own favorites is Red-crowned Crane photographed in Hokkaido before covid. It combines two things which are important for me artistic view and recognizable nature. Same style but very different photo shows Eagle Owls (double exposure of one Owl) from last winter. Also simple, artistic but recognizable. These are meant to be artistic not accidentally made like we can see too often in nature photography."

Instagram

Kirsten Holst

"As a photographer, I have always had a passion for the art of capturing moments and creating visual stories. It allows me to see the world in a unique way, noticing details and perspectives that others may overlook. Through my camera lens, I am able to express myself creatively and capture memories that will last a lifetime. Photography is not just a hobby or a profession for me, it's a part of who I am and how I see the world. "

"My photography affords me the opportunity to slow adown and see the "everyday miracles" all around us, from the earth spinning creating star trails to the eyes and toepads of a tree frog. I enjoy capturing photons, manipulating pixels, and inspiring others through my images and via my "Creativity is contagious, pass it on" teaching philosophy. I love the role that the OM SYSTEM computational technologies play in achieving my photographic vision and creating storytelling images with my “Don’t shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like” approach."

"It's the fleeting moments of natural beauty and wild conditions that make me excited to travel with my camera. Having the OM SYSTEM gear with me to photograph wildlife, windswept landscapes, coastlines and frozen wonders, always makes the adventure more immersive. Being in the moment, looking through the lens and capturing those moments is so rewarding, both personally and professionally."

Marisa Martinez

"Photography allows me to be in contact with nature, to observe animals from a distance without interfering in their behavior, but obtaining incredibly close images thanks to my team, images that I like to share to raise awareness of the wonders that surround us and that we must protect. "

Instagram

Marja Heiskanen

”For me photography is a place for free creative play. I can discover and wonder nature in all it’s details, and get perspective on the world around us. Though photography I can see the ordinary things as something remarkable. And that is very inspiring.”

Instagram

Martina Govindraj

"'Photography is a powerful and versatile art form. It has given me the freedom to express myself and bring joy to others whilst documenting the world as I see and experience it. I love that even though there are accepted 'rules', there is also the scope to break them. "

Mary Ann Mc Donald

"For the past 35 years, I’ve been leading photo tours around the world with my husband, Joe, sharing incredible nature and wildlife experiences with scores of people and using my images to educate children and adults. I consider myself a steward of these wild places and wild animals and am honored to use my images to help with conservation efforts around the world. "

"Last light | Paulet Island Antarctica  A beautiful pink glow illuminated hundreds of thousands of chattering penguins raising the next generation. It all felt so surreal. I stopped for a moment and grabbed my OM-1 sneaking in a few precious photographs before boarding the last zodiac of the night back to the ship. I love the effortlessness of the system. It allows me to be fully immersed in my environment all while capturing these special moments. "

Instagram

Naia Pascual

"For me photography is a way of life. Photography allows me to travel discovering the world with much more attentive eyes, seeing the world around us from other perspectives. Stop and observe; find small details, behaviors, colors or lights, that would otherwise be invisible.One of the things I value most about being a photographer is that for me it has been and is constant learning and improvement: learning about nature, conservation, fauna..., but also learning to be patient, to observe, and to overcome frustration. and some fearsBut I get the greatest gratification when my photographs are able to reach people and thanks to them they also manage to see the world with different eyes, making them more aware of the essential need to take care of our planet."

Nikita Stastna

"I love macro photography and that's what I focus on the most. Living nature is a gift that we must protect and show its beauty and essence. I like the detail in the picture that you don't normally see. "

Instagram

Olivia Mortimer

"I love macro photography, because it allows me to get completely lost in the moment. Still, after years I discover new and wondrous little natural worlds that keep making me feel in awe.“

Instagram

Rania Rönntoft

"I am incredibly proud to be working as a female photographer within the nature and outdoor lifestyle scene. I am also so proud for all my female friends and colleagues that pushed hard in this industry, dared to go for their dreams and start their own businesses on top of that they are doing it with splendour! They are all so inspiring and deserve some extra love today."

Tiffany Taxis

Tiffany is a wildlife photographer and naturalist guide in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Growing up near the water, her love for scuba diving brought her close to nature and marine life and provided a profound appreciation for wildlife. Enamored by photographing life under the water and landscapes above, led Tiffany to fall in love with photography. She pursued a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art with a focus in Photography and moved to Jackson shortly after to explore the mountain west through the lens of her camera.

Lauren Bath

Photography allows me to tap into the present moment and preserve it, with all the feelings attached, forever. Becoming a photographer allowed me to realise a lifetime dream of working creatively and inspiring others at the same time. I'm so grateful for everything that's happened in my life as a result of my camera.
