Shoot it - The Olympus Archive

This is the archive site of Olympus pictures. Newer stuff from the Canon(s) are here or on any areas added after 2005 below.

Basic philosophy of the Shoot it site - keep it natural. There are no studio shots here.... no sneaky light boxes....
Although the majority are out in the wild some beasts are in Zoological Gardens or Wildlife Preserves, and occasionally participants are on the payroll... ie they get fed.

Pictures on this site have been taken using Olympus E-10, E-20P and E-100RS digital cameras, some newer with the Canon 20D (from May 2005) - but not many of these up yet....
They have been resized for onscreen use - high resolution images are also available on request for most of the shots.

The mammals have been split into UK and others and now there is a page for the seals..... tho' the others may have been taken in the UK the beasts don't reside here naturally.... and the birds are split into older and newer photos.... the insects have been split into more manageable sections

....check out The Flight of the Bumblebee, some fast action madness... the MYSTERY OF THE SWOLLEN SERPHIDS and First E20 pictures including mighty spiderwars... Don't Believe Page... some bird skirmishes
and very latest additions, Some shots from the Edinburgh Tattoo 2004
