Just over the hill from Lake Zurich lies an interesting playground and perfect testing site for the new Olympus OM-D EM-I Mark II camera. It’s forest, marshes and gardens offer endless subject matter for honing your nature photography skills while testing out some intriguing new equipment from Olympus. Matt and Dagmar Anderson will lead the hunt for colourful flowers as well as frogs, snakes and birds. There’s something for every nature lover to photograph at this enjoyable nature oasis.
Our group will rendezvous at the Zurich HB before driving to our location in the Viewfinder van. Upon arriving, we’ll distribute the latest cameras and lenses from Olympus. After a short orientation tour, participants are free to explore and photograph their surroundings, trying out various lenses to suite their subject matter. Matt Anderson will be available to provide technical and creative tips for macro, birdlife and other nature subjects.
Our group will take a midday lunch break (at the informal park restaurant) and after a bit more afternoon shooting we’ll call it a wrap – returning to the Zurich HB by ca. 17:00.

Albeit a rather soggy visit to Seleger Moor, I had a great time and met a great bunch of people. Matt and Dagmar, well done for organizing a great day out.
