Olympus UK have made their partnership with multi-award-winning photographer Damian "Big Dog" McGillicuddy all official. It is no secret that Olympus and Damian McGillicuddy have been working together very closely over the last 12 months, beginning at Focus 2012 with the launch of the OM-D. Over the past 12 months Damian has been working on Olympus UK’s behalf - testing their latest equipment, running courses and shooting the photographs that Olympus have been using to advertise the OM-D. He also worked with Olympus at Focus 2013. Today, the company has announced that Damian will be assuming the position of principal photographer and educator at Olympus UK. Olympus will be subsidising the cost of McGillicuddy’s workshops, making their educational content more accessible - and the good news is, you don’t have to be an Olympus user to benefit from these discounts.
