It’s a natural human desire to capture the moments that define what it means to be alive. Wherever this desire takes us, Olympus is there with cameras and audio equipment that recreate the real and let us record our own unique life experiences.


Becoming a Part of the Scene

In the world of a professional journalistic photographer, becoming an unobtrusive part of the action—with an unobtrusive camera—is key to capturing true-to-life images.

“The more I become invisible, the more I can become part of the scene, the more the photographic opportunities present themselves to me.” These are the words of Olympus Visionary Jay Dickman, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning photographer who has relied on Olympus OM cameras for a large part of his career.


A Declaration of Freedom

The very best shots are sometimes the most difficult to capture due to the physical limitations of bulky camera gear.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1X is a compact, lightweight professional camera that delivers all the features of much larger rigs. The freedom to move is one important key to a successful career in photography.


Staying in the Moment

Sports photography can be as tough on the photographer as it is on the athlete, with unpredictable outdoor conditions and the need to quickly react to the moment.

Olympus Visionary and professional sports photographer Kelley Cox shoots with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X because of its size, shape, and transportability. “The weight of this camera lets me know that I can do this comfortably for the rest of my career. Whether I’m on the field or on the water, I’m confident I can capture what I need."


Ready for Adventure

Beautiful moments take place everywhere on earth. Day or night, in any weather, under any conditions. Underwater, in the sky, in the middle of any kind of action.

The Olympus Tough TG-6 is a waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, freezeproof, dustproof camera that takes incredibly bright, crisp shots in literally any environment. Moments worth going to the extreme for are worth capturing in all their spectacular glory.


“That’s one tough camera.”

Canyoneering can involve climbing and rappelling down the middle of waterfalls—a tough set of conditions for a camera.

When avid waterfall explorer Wade Hewitt lost his Olympus Tough TG-5 camera in a rush of whitewater, he wasn’t sure he would ever see it again, let alone use it.


Keeping the Joy of Photography Alive

Being a professional wildlife photographer is an exciting job that can take one around the world. It also puts a lot of physical strain on the human body.

Olympus Visionary Scott Bourne has spent his career capturing the natural majesty of avian creatures. After years of carrying heavy gear and multiple surgeries, Bourne was told by his doctor that he should consider retirement. The answer was the compact, lightweight Olympus OM-D.
