The OM SYSTEM is ideal for my work with Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic traveling on ship-based expeditions to the remote corners of the world. Sharp optics and cutting-edge technology, combined with the weathered sealed cameras and lenses, allows me to make the best images possible even when conditions are less than ideal. From photographing penguins in a blizzard in Antarctica, to bears in the rain in Alaska, OM SYSTEM gear keeps me in the moment.
