Coffee with the Cla(i)re's

Join everyone’s favourite Olympus duo Clare Harvey-May and Claire Voyle for a cup of coffee or tea, LIVE on Facebook & YouTube for World Photography Day 2021! The pair will be on location shooting macro with our fantastic range of telephoto lenses. Expect tips, tricks and lots of close up critters!


Clare Harvey-May is a photographer who lives on the south coast of the UK. She loves ICM, long-exposure seascapes, food photography, and portraits of her spaniel. Claire Voyle is a photographer based just outside Cambridge in the UK. She enjoys F1.2 prime lenses, close-up nature captures, and has very recently got into baby photography. "Coffee With The Cla(i)res" started during lockdown, where the two photographers would go live from their homes to share projects, demonstrate techniques and interview other camera-lovers about what they'd been shooting while staying at home. Their shows reached thousands of photographers across the world, and you can still see all the episodes in OlympusUK's Facebook video library!
