My photographic experience is based on work with people and mainly athletes, and I knew I was going to shoot some of my favourite sports such as kayaking and paragliding. So, after Italy and the Czech Republic, I headed to Norway and the Slovak paragliding championship afterwards where I started to use the new E-M1 Mark II. Straight away I was able to appreciate some of the new or improved features, such as the fast autofocus.
“THE WEATHER WASN’T A PROBLEM.”
I travelled back to the Czech Republic after some good days of free-flying and paraglide shooting and left the same day for Norway. On a road trip with a couple of the world’s best white water kayakers, I was sure to shoot some amazing kayak action. Still, the biggest challenge in Norway is always the weather – but the E-M1 Mark II didn’t have any problems handling the tough rains and waterfall sprays.

“I COULD ALWAYS RELY ON ITS FUNCTIONALITY.”
To have a broader image selection, I decided to photograph something totally different from outdoor sports but which is still related to speed: karate. Although the karateka were moving really fast, it was an easy thing to freeze their movements just in the right moment. What I enjoyed the most about the E-M1 Mark II is the improved autofocus with much more focusing points and improved focusing accuracy.
