Olympus Photo Event On Teufelsberg

Olympus invited me to a photo event and workshop on the Teufelsberg. Teufelsberg is a hill (90m height) in Berlin Grunewald. On top of it there are the remains of a former US listening station that was closed after the the end of the cold war. Nowadays many artists use this place.

Olympus visionary Steffen Herbst together with Rebecca Wagner from Olympus guided the participants which were all happy PEN-F or OM-D users. After a brief explanation about the history of Teufelsberg we started happy shooting. Steffen helped the participants to understand photo techniques and explained the possibilities of the Olympus cameras. Olympus was so kind to bring along many Pro lenses to try them out. The m.Zuiko 8mm F1.8 Pro Fisheye as well as the m.Zuiko 300mm F4.0 were very popular among the photographers. The event finished with a nice dinner and many talks about cameras, the right settings and all that photo nerd stuff. All in all thumbs up to Olympus for the organization and the nice location.
