OM SYSTEM - OM-1

I was stoked to be a part of the release for the new OM SYSTEM OM-1 flagship camera. I was asked to create a comprehensive review of the unit and put it through its paces across a variety of different shoots. I was blown away at the capabilities of the new camera and had qutie a lot of fun shooting with it. Thanks to all the awesome people who helped me out on this whirlwind few weeks.

All portrait images edited with my Portrait Presets Vol.2

Key Locations

Curl Curl, Sydney, Wollemi National Park, NSW, Australia
