Olympus has new Macro and Commercial photography Ambassadors who will be joining the Olympus photographer scheme, first launched in 2015. 


New Olympus Macro Ambassador

To kick off 'Macro May', Geraint Radford is set to join the Olympus photographer program as an Ambassador specialising in this field.

"It came as a real surprise and It's still not quite sunken in (I'm not sure it ever will!) I am deeply humbled to have been asked and it's something that I never expected. Being an ambassador for such a prestigious and well-respected company such as Olympus is truly an honour. The Olympus family are incredibly supportive of my photography and I haven't stopped smiling since I had the news! I truly love macro photography and all of my little bug buddies, to be an ambassador within the macro field is simply wonderful!" says Geraint Radford.

Geraint is a professional wildlife macro photographer and tutor, an insect’s best friend, vegan and cake addict. Growing up in the beautiful Welsh valleys his days were often spent with his younger brother exploring the outdoors and searching for bugs, slow worms and other minibeasts. This is where he found his deep love and appreciation of nature and wildlife.

In 2010 he purchased his first DSLR and began his journey into the world of photography. A year later he was a working commercial photographer with a wide range of clients but in 2016 he decided to follow his heart and became a full-time nature photographer specialising in insect photography.

Following an Olympus pro loan, Geraint now uses the OM-D E-M1 Mark II combined with the Olympus 60mm macro and an Olympus STF-8 flash.

New Olympus Commercial Ambassador

As well as Geraint, Marcus Clackson is set to become an Olympus Commercial Ambassador. Marcus has been acting as the Macro Ambassador for 4 years and to continue to build his portfolio and offering, a new category has been created to enable a new focus to better align with his specialism.

Commercial photographer Marcus Clackson specialises in design, advertising and editorial photography with a broad range of clients.

A London based photographer passionate about making images for over 20 years, Marcus has vast experience in location, lifestyle, people and product photography developed on assignments undertaken both in the UK and abroad. Coming from a fine art education and with a love of all music, inspiration comes from many directions, which shows up with the passion and excitement that Marcus approaches every commission.

"I'm thrilled to be appointed Commercial Ambassador for Olympus UK and am looking forward to sharing my 25 years of photographic experience working for editorial and advertising agencies. Shooting all my work on the flagship Olympus OM-D E-M1 series cameras and M.Zuiko PRO lenses has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for my photography," says Marcus Clackson.
