NYC Behind the Scenes Video

I’m a bad youtuber. I know the key to growing on YouTube as a platform is consistency, but editing videos takes way longer than I can be bothered with. Capturing interesting video is also far more time consuming than still photography, due to things like alternative angles and b-roll being important to making movies more interesting and compelling. 

On my recent trip to New York City with Olympus PEN, I was lucky that we had someone with us capturing some behind the scenes footage for us.

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!

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?

Olympus PEN Party Greece

A little over a week ago I had one of the most hectic few days of my life. I was in Greece at Nikki Beach with Olympus for the launch of the brand new Olympus PEN E-PL8 camera, and with us was what seemed at times like thousands of bloggers from all over Europe. In actual fact, it was less than 100, but it was still a lot!

I was there as an Olympus ambassador to teach bloggers how to improve their photography and also to do a few shoots with a small number of them.
