For the second Instagram take-over of formerly OLYMPUS, now OM SYSTEM, we took visitors to the Caribbean. We followed in the footsteps of Spanish conquerors and Dutch colonizers - right in the heart of the Caribbean Sea - to Curaçao. A photographic foray above and below water with lots of photos and colorful stories.


We were able to further expand our network and have found the perfect and reliable partner in PanOceanPhoto, which we need in all areas of our equipment. In addition to a huge selection of underwater housings, lighting technology and all kinds of accessories, the main focus in the house of underwater photography is on personal and individual advice.


Just before Christmas, OLYMPUS visionary Thomas Adorff welcomed us to his studio for a creative and photographic review of the year. With other guests, we reviewed the year and presented our highlight pictures from 2021. In addition to interesting conversations, there was also a lot of technology news to discuss.


On Curaçao we took advantage of the moment and entered new territory. As an underwater photographer team, we portrayed the colorful bird life of the Caribbean island. In addition to Trupial, Wara Wara and small hummingbirds, the focus was on the OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300 mm/4 IS PRO, the professional lens for all bird photographers.


There are countless beautiful beaches on Curaçao, but the most beautiful one can be found on the little sister island Klein Curaçao. An endless sandy beach, wrapped in bright turquoise, blue and green. Known for its collapsed lighthouse and the wreck of the Maria Bianca Guidesman, Klein Curaçao offers plenty of motives for photo enthusiasts in addition to the Caribbean idyll.

A once in a lifetime experience! With the Curasub we went down into the deep sea at 1001 feet, where we were able to discover previously unknown species in the light of the submarine. In the stillness of darkness, we headed through sea canyons to the mystical wreck of the Stella Maris for a close-up look at the bridge.
