Ewen Bell | Travel Photographer
Shooting with the G9 in Kenya
Travel photographer Ewen Bell wanders the globe shooting brochures for adventure tour operators, photographing image libraries for tourist boards, exploring new destinations for his own photographic collections and essays, researching travel experiences for the travel media and leading tours each year to share his own photographic philosophies first-hand. Ewen’s photography can be seen in international publications such as National Geographic Traveller, Geo Saison, Food & Travel, Luxury Travel, Vacation & Travel, Higher View, Outback Magazine and many others.
“These images were all taken with the new Lumix G9. I had the good fortune to carry this camera on safari in Kenya for 2 weeks, a Micro-Four Thirds camera designed from the ground up for wildlife and sports photography. It has a much larger view finder than you would expect from a small camera body, to help drive the autofocus system. There’s a couple of neat tricks as well to let you magnify into a scene and be very very precise with where you direct the AF.”

Bence Máté | LUMIX Ambassador
Shooting with the G9 in Zimbabwe and Kenya
Bence Máté is one of the world’s most well-known wildlife photographers. He pioneered the one-way glass photography technique now popular among hide-based nature photographers around the world. In 2010, his image ‘Marvel of Ants’ won the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year, making him the only contestant to date to win the grand title prizes in both the young and adult categories of the competition. Since 2008 he has been designing exclusive wildlife photography hides around the world.
“6K Photo is a nice feature for wildlife, because the camera is capturing all the time. Having such a high resolution gives me the flexibility to crop for exhibitions and magazines. When you are on the field, you see, you smell, you hear and all the experience is very rich. So, that’s why it’s very important to take high quality image – the image which gives other people the same feeling as if they would be here.”

Joakim Odelberg | LUMIX Ambassador
Shooting with the G9 in Madagascar
Joakim Odelberg is one of the most contracted and respected photographers/filmmakers in Sweden. His devotion to nature both on land and in the sea has reached beyond Swedish borders. He’s frequently booked for lecturers both in Sweden and internationally, hosts a popular show for a Swedish TV SVT’s Mitt i naturen “Surrounded By Nature”, and works with a variety of foundations and companies, including WWF Sweden, Baltic Sea 2020, TV4, SVT, Fundamentfilm, Folke Rydén Production, Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation, Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, Nordic Council and more.
“I’ve been working exclusively with LUMIX cameras since 2013. The accuracy and weight are extremely important to me. When I am out in the field I don’t want to have to carry heavy equipment. I am out in the wild for several days in a row so I need to be able to trust my equipment. There’s nowhere to fix or change a camera in the wild. I work in extreme conditions so the camera has to take a beating in heat, cold, damp, dust, rain, and snow.”
