Olympus PEN x NYC

Back in May I found myself ticking off the number one place in the world I’d never been... New York City! People were usually shocked when I told them I’d never visited NYC. It was always somewhere I’d longed to see, but the opportunity just never came around until recently.

Fortunately Olympus decided to use New York as the backdrop for promotional images for the new blue version of their E-PL9 camera, along with a whole host of other content they were looking to capture. To say I jumped at the chance would be an understatement!

Interview for Made Online Podcast

If anyone knows me, they know I like to talk! Seriously, I need someone to shut me up, not encourage me sometimes! Anyway, I was super chuffed to be asked by Hayley Hall (AKA London Beauty Queen) to feature on her 'Made Online' podcast!

Blogger Workshops Mailing List

One of the things I get asked about a lot is ‘when are you next doing a photography workshop?’ 

Often I only know about a month in advance, but in an effort to make sure I keep everyone up to date, I’ve set up a mailing list for people to subscribe to. 

Now I promise I won’t be spamming anyone, and you can unsubscribe at any time, but this will be the best way to know if and when I have a blogger workshop coming up. It also allows you to choose the type of workshop you’re interested in, which should further reduce the risk of spam. 

So if you do want to keep up to date, you can visit  http://www.jaymclaughlin.co.uk/bloggerworkshops and subscribe!

Review - Olympus PEN E-PL9

It’s fair to say that I’m a little bit of an Olympus PEN expert. I recently posted about my Olympus PEN E-PL1, which I bought way back in 2010 and fell in love with. Over time I formed a relationship with Olympus, and as such, have used many variants of the PEN range.

So I think it’s fair to say I’m familiar with the Olympus PEN range of cameras, and there’s now a new kid on the block!

The Olympus PEN E-PL9 was launched last week, and I’ve had loads of people wanting to know my opinion on it, so who am I to disappoint?

Blogiversary!

Despite only returning to the whole blogging thing a few weeks ago, turns out today is a bit of a birthday. My first ever blog post was December 15th 2007... literally 10 years ago!!!!

Now obviously I’m not claiming to have blogged consistently for the entirety of the past 10 years. I haven’t blogged at all (besides the odd Guest blog on other people’s) for he past 4 years, but it’s still kinda crazy to think about the idea of blogging being that old, when we still talk about it being a ‘new thing’.

Girl Vs Cancer

Have you ever met one of those people that you have nothing but admiration for? A few years ago I met blogger and PR, Lauren Mahon when I was teaching a photography workshop. She was super enthusiastic and chatty, which always makes me warm to someone.

A few months later and we’re sitting at the Barbican, eating cookies after she’s just dropped the breast cancer bomb. I was amazed though, because she almost made it sound like a good thing. Here was someone in a life threatening situation, and not only was she being positive, but also had a complete game plan of how she was going to make the most out of beating it... and there was no doubt that she was always going to beat it, she’s that determined!
