Win your very own Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III camera!

It’s now been a week since we arrived back home from my very own Royal adventure and the further away from it I get, the more I feel like it was all a dream. A wonderful, magical dream!

But my Instagram and photo roll in my phone tells me something else entirely…it WAS real. Thank GOODNESS for photos and the way that they can instantly transport you back to a time and a place, a moment in time. And for me, with my blog, I will always be able to go right back to those moments on that trip, all captured so beautifully on my little camera (the OM-D E-M10 Mark III)

My favourite bits of London

It’s funny though, when I trawl back through all my photos the ones that are my favourites aren’t necessarily the best ones, they are candid, or silly, or remind me of something instantly and I know that every time that I look at them in years to come that I remember the EXACT moment they were taken. How good is photography to do that? I LOVE how it stops you in your tracks and forces you to take in moment, be mindful, soak it up: the light, the person, the food, the drink, the scene…whatever. CLICK! You got it locked away. I love that so much.

I am so grateful for all these wonderful moments that I created, all from a seed of an idea that came to life. Dreams realised! I loved how many of you got this, all the messages of excitement and happiness and fun, all the following along over the week, I truly felt like so many of you were along for the ride with me, at the end of my phone or camera lens as I experienced it all. It truly was a journey that I will NEVER forget. Not ever. How good were Olympus to jump on board?

And I loved how many of you thought I took good photos. I know I rabbit on about it, but this camera has changed the way I take photos and see the world. It has made me SUCH a better photographer. It’s a pocket rocket.

And thanks to Olympus, who always want you to #neverstopthejourney I have ONE TO GIVE AWAY TO YOU! That’s right, one of these BRILLIANT cameras worth $1000 sitting on my desk at home ready to give away to one lucky reader, ready to start your own journey! I am basically Oprah. OPRYMPUS!

All I want you to do, is to share a moment on your own journey with us. It could be a photo or story from the Royal wedding or related to that, it might be a moment in time in travel, it might be a story or photo about your kid, just share away with a photo or comment your story for a chance to win. You can upload photos directly onto this post on Facebook, or email me ([email protected]) just make sure you also write a comment in the blog post below telling me you uploaded a photo on Facebook or emailed me! I need a comment (as well as your photo) for it to be an entry!

  5. You little ripper! I am about to enrol in Lauren Bath’s online photography course.. so this is perfect timing. No idea how to put a pic here so it’ll be on facey

  6. Contessa Michele Borghesi says:

    Gosh I LOVE that spotty frock!
    I have uploaded a photo taken last weekend on your Facebook post with this comment…
    “Solo” Venus Bay, Victoria. Taken on my iphone 6, (NO FILTER) because I don’t own a schooshzzee camera, but would LOVE to, so that I can properly document my garden, the seasons and my gorgeous grandchildren. ❤️

  7. Jess knight-Batterham says:

    Oh em gee what a magnificent prize you have to give away – this would perfect for our family of three ( hubby + 2year old) before we embark on a trip from canberra to Noosa and beyond in a borrowed camper trailer stopping at all the “big things on the way” everything from the big fruit bowl, prawn, guitar, pineapple, shell, pelican and everything we can sqeeze in inbetween.

  8. Emma Thatcher says:

    I loved your posts, pics and blog – took me back (I’m a brit living In Oz!) to Will and Kate’s wedding, I was all about the royal buzz and watching as much as possible from as close as possible! Anyway I have shared a pic from my daughter’s 5th birthday party – after which we watched the royal wedding with a bottle of bubbles while the kids were in bed! Xx

  13. Pic and comment on FB – thanks for all your beautiful photos, especially your tea at Claridges story!

  14. Your journey sure was! Magical ✨very glad you took us all along.

    My photo ( on fb ) is this mornings sunrise- we often have good sunrises here but this was gobsmackingly beautiful. I got a chair to stand on & just stood & stared for a good 10 minutes … when I really should have been getting ready for the school run. Just an ordinary morning,in my backyard, on a school day, but it was like being stood in a surrealist painting both beautiful and strange. Nearly too beautiful to be believed. If I painted it for you you would think it was my fantastic imagination, but no, it was just Mother Nature reminding us all to pay attention, stop, see the incredible beauty in the midst of the ordinary.

  15. Shelley says:

    Thank you for the opportunity – I have emailed you my entry

  16. Picture and comment in FB now. I have just arrived home from hospital after having my 3rd. A little girl in the midst of all the testosterone in my house!

  17. Natalie Arditto-Duncan says:

    What a fantastic trip you had Beth. Your photos and commentary were second to none, entertaining and inspirational as always xx

    I posted my pic on FB🤞

  18. Photo & comment uploaded to the FB post, only taken with phone as all my camera equipment was stolen and can’t afford to be replaced 😢 This is an amazing opportunity, thank you for the generosity.

  19. Love your trip photos and have entered on your facebook page

  20. In 2006 when my husband and I travelled to Paris, we didn’t get time to visit Sacre Coeur. I always regretted it. Ten years later we found ourselves in Paris in circumstances we could never have predicted back in 2006. Our firstborn daughter Hope was stillborn at fullterm in 2008. After she died I took up running to ease my grief. We also took up fundraising for the Stillbirth Foundation Australia. I ran the London Marathon in 2016 and raised $24,000 for the cause. After the run, we took our two kids, both born after Hope died, to Paris for the trip of a lifetime. Finally I could sit up on those steps of Sacre Coeur and look out over beautiful Paris, this time with two of my three kids with me. This September, we are headed back to Europe for my husband to run the Berlin Marathon. If we hit our $20,000 target, we will have raised $100,000 all up in 10 years. After the run we are taking the kids around Prague, Italy and Switzerland for two weeks, and this camera would no doubt allow us to capture hundreds more memories just like those precious memories from Paris. I’ll email you my photo xx

  28. My 6 year old and I loved following your Royal Wedding adventures. Lots of your pics a reminder of years ago when I lived in London and I shared so many memories with her of that time! I love how photos can bring back so many wonderful memories of times gone by. Thank you for sharing your journey…. it was truly amazing. My entry for the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Is on your FB page 💖

  29. Samantha Jane Vaughan says:

    Your journey was ace – loved every moment you captured! How seriously dreamy… a real life modern day fairytale. But, what I really want to thank you for is your daughter Mags! Through having her you totally inspired me to keep going on my five year IVF journey (including 3 miscarriages and 12 transfers) to give my son a sibling. I ended up having twins. Thank you, thank you. Now I need to capture all the beautiful chaos. PS: thanks for the big age gap too. I now have a 7.5 year old and 18 month old twins – please keep blogging – gawd knows I need the big age gap advice. X PS: will upload to Facebook now

  30. It was so great to see it through your eyes! It was a beautiful journey!
    Posted a photo of my daughter just tonight, I was teaching her to sew using the sewing machine! She made 2 small cushions that she will add some dried lavender to before closing them up!

  31. Loved following your journey in LONDON TOWN… Fave moment… nude heals on… THE STEPS!🙅🏻‍♀️!! Nah… loved it all! EVERY picture radiated pure joy!! I have emailed my pic😊!

  32. Shelley Nelson says:

    Oh god! I’ve been eying of this camera since your NZ trip. yas! I wanna one of those! So bloody wish I splurged at got one for our recent U.S. trip. Now I only have the memories and the sub standard iPhone6 🙄 shots. Ah well next time . Super dodgy NY photo uploaded.

  33. Jess Malone says:

    I have emailed my entry 😊

  34. Wow what a comp! I’d love to win an Olympus Om-D E- M10 Mark III. The photos I would be able to take of my family would be be vibrant, in-focus and full of emotion. That’s what memories are made of!

  35. Corina Morgan says:

    Loved all you photos 💕 What an awesome trip!

  36. I’ve popped my pic on the FB post! What an amazing prize – your pics from your Royal vacay were certainly stunning, and how fantastic that you can take great pics on a profesh camera but then get them up on the grams straight away by sending to your phone. MIND BLOWN!

  37. Corina Morgan says:

    I’ve shared my photo on your FB post.

    Thanks 🙂

  41. Carmel King says:

    Hello, I have entered via Facebook! Loved following your Royal Wedding Adventure! 😍

  42. My six year old and I loved following your Royal Wedding Journey. I lived in London in my mid twenties and your pics reminded me of some amazing times I had there and I got to share some stories with my daughter of that time. I love how photos can take you back to those special times in your life. Thanks for including us in this magical occasion we loved every bit of your coverage. Entery via your FB page.

  43. I went on a weekend trip with my little fat pudding of a 9 month old; beautiful sunrises, beautiful meals, laughing rolly baby- the stuff photo dreams are made of! But because I ONLY HAVE MY BLOODY IPHONE and am somehow totally inept I failed to notice a small smudge of what I suspect was tomato ketchup over a bit of the camera lense, and all the photos have a sinister dark smear across the bottom centre. Not to mention the ones that also have my finger covering a bit of them because apparently I take photos like my grandpa. Anyway I truly believe that a lovely Olympus camera will help me overcome my greatest impediment in photography; that being- myself.

  68. Chris Driver says:

    Hi Beth, I’ve put my photo on your FB page taken with my iPhone. We don’t own a camera and are currently traveling Australia for eight weeks. The little blue mushrooms were a surprise find at a waterfall in Lorne Vic last week! Cheers, Chris. ps, yep I’m a bloke!

  69. Oh! I love photography! And contrary to so much of the ‘screens take you away’ narrative that we’re surrounded with, I think having my camera in my hands makes me a better parent. It for sure helps me to see beautiful moments but it also helps me create them..I’m so much more likely to say yes to fun and adventures when I know that i’ll be as creatively fulfilled shooting them, as they are in having them.
    Technically I’ve always been a lumix shooter, but have long been Olympus curious, and with a broken-beyond-repair camera body, it would be a wonderful time to try ;). Thanks for the chance to enter!

    Hi Beth, I have emailed you my photo! Cheers

  73. Danielle says:

    My 13 year old spends all day taking photos, especially of nature. She has a great eye for taking photos from all different angles. She currently takes photos with her trusty old iPhone or iPad but I’m sure her photos would be even more beautiful through the lens of an Olympus camera.

    What a fab competition and amazing prize! I’ll upload mine on Facebook 🙂

  78. Hi Bev, I can’t begin to tell you how much I’d love this camera!! I have a clunky canon that I begged my family for when I turned 40 and sadly I’ve hardly used it – too big and awkward for everyday use – I have my three girls and we are super busy – I don’t have room in my bag and who has time to plug in cords these days?? I need Bluetooth and wifi baby!! Seriously, I would adore this prize so much!! Have posted a favourite iPhone pic on your Facebook post xxx

  79. Stacey Leclerc says:

    loved your photos and ‘coverage’ of the royal wedding!!
    Since have my iphone I snap all our family photos on it, having this beauty will definitely get me back into using a real camera.

  80. Elizabeth says:

    Comment/pic on Facebook post!

  81. sue paterson says:

    Totally agree about the ability to be ‘right back there’ with a quick look through the photo album – even if your photos were taken on a tiny pocket digital & all seem to be missing the glorious mediterranean light I remember.
    It’s been 10 years since we were married in Greece, and in 5 weeks the Hubster, kiddo & I are headed back Greece & Croatia for 5 magnificent weeks!
    This will be the first time my 7 year old will meet his greek family, and there has been much scrimping, saving, researching, discussing & planning this time around – let’s hope it lives up to our dreams!

  82. Kristie says:

    This is such a great giveaway and so generous. I’ve emailed you a pic! I’m snapping away on my phone but have a sneaky project on the boil and will need a flash camera…helloooo Olympus!

  83. Oh how I wish I was in Australia right now to be able to enter! Your pictures were amazing and I am seriously in the market for a new camera! I moved to a rural area almost a year ago and would love to be able to take great pictures. I have an older cannon that I used but my gosh the IPHONES take better pics! Good luck to some very lucky Australian out there! One because you live in a beautiful country and two because you get to win this camera and take great pictures!

  84. Cathy Lawrence says:

    Ever since I did photography I have wanted an Olympus camera but since having kids I have never had the opportunity to buy one. Here is hoping with fingers and toes crossed for a dream of mine to come true. Photo uploaded on Facebook page

  85. Oh I love photography! And in contrast to the ever-present idea that *screens* distract us from really experiencing the moment,
    I’m convinced that I’m a better parent with a camera in my hands. Yes, photographs help me to see beautiful moments, but I’m sure they also help me to create those moments too. I’m far more likely to say yes to adventures and experiments and shenanigans of all kinds when I know that i’ll be as creatively fulfilled shooting them, as my kids are in having them.

    On the technical side of things I’ve always shot with (enter competitor brand here!) cameras but I’ve been Olympus curious for a long time. And with a camera body that is currently broken beyond repair, I’m really loving this opportunity to enter. Thanks Beth and Olympus!

    I love capturung moments too. Have uploaded to facebook.

  97. Thank you for sharing. I am not an avid photo taker like.some but ai do love going back over the ones I have taken to relive the moments. The photo I have emailed takes me back 5 years. We were so tired, a stop over in Hawaii, a stop over in Dallas, having to find our luggage at JFK Airport – mild moments of panic. Two tired, emotional teenagers and a partner who likes to have everything under control. It was the beginning of an amazing 6 week U.S. adventure and the girls still talk about little things such as what the flight attendant said on one if the journeys, chasing squirrels calling out ‘Allan’, and the way the waiter at the diner just produced a a straw at exactly the right time.
    Thank you for the opportunity and all the things you share.

  98. Penny Whormsley says:

    What an amazing prize!! I’ve entered on the Facebook post. I always love seeing your pics and posts and the camera sounds like it’s easy enough for even me to handle!! 😂😂

    I’d love to win this camera because my last Olympus sadly got water damage on a fun holiday – it’s a long story but I’ve learnt my lesson and would look after this baby.

    My Royal Wedding moment is an emotional one rather than a visual one. I got back to Oz Saturday morning after a week in Bali on a yoga retreat. Precious time out for a busy working mum. I got home and let’s just say the house was barely holding together. Full laundry baskets. Empty fridge. Dirty kitchen bench. I tried desperately to hang on to the holiday zen but by the afternoon was having a major tiff with hubby. How could he make such little effort knowing I was coming home? Fast forward to a moment an hour or so later when I realised he had set the tellie to record the wedding on multiple channels. He said he wasn’t sure how tired I’d be after an overnight flight so thought he’d record it just in case 😍 in that moment I felt loved. I whizzed through the jobs and sat down feeling tired but happy to watch it unfold in all its glorious splendour.

  104. Wow, such an adventure! And that’s what life is really about! I was listening to Sir Ken Robinson last night and a quote that stays with me is, if you don’t seek out new things or break from the routine how can you discover who really are and what your hidden passions may be?
    You are wonderful at seeking out new adventures!
    As I said on Facebook, I’m sad that all my adventures in recent years are just snaps on my phone because those snaps really are more precious than any of the trinkets that I picked up along the way.
    My photo I put up shows my stormy journey in Brisbane to finally finding a sense of ‘home’.

    Don’t ever stop your adventuring!!

  105. I’ve left a pic and comment on your Facebook page. I found your blog through Mrs Woog and have really enjoyed reading and seeing your world. I too am an escapee from the city to a beautiful county life, some twenty years ago and have never looked back. And, although I am a country girl now through and through it is my life goal to be able to spend two to three months living in NYC every couple of years. I love that place. Go well. 🙂

  106. Lost my comment (although maybe takes some time to pop up) so just in case…have posted a pic and comment on your fb page. 🙂

    • Ok this one has shown up..what is it with me and tech 😜 I first came across your blog through Mrs Woog and have so enjoyed your take on the world. I too am an escapee from the city to a wonderful country life some twenty years ago and have never looked back. And, although I am now a country gal through and through, it is my life goal to live in NYC for two to three months every couple of years – I know from your blogs that you love that place too. Ain’t life grand!

    Added a pic to your FB page. Loved the joy and unbridled excitement about your wedding shenanigans. You could see how much you were bursting with happiness. Brilliant. As a stay at home Mum my journey is often a little less exciting including doctors visits lately. So excuse me for the mundane pic but it does make me laugh!

  109. Charlotte Pointeaux says:

    Hawaii. 5 days with some dear friends. Found this amazing creature. Just the 2 of us and her. Such an emotional moment.

  112. Oh I’d love to improve my shots, and be able to load them right up to fb and instagram. This camera is it!! ❤️

  113. Anne Davis says:

    Photo on Facebook 👍😊
    On our trip around WA in 2014, I used a boogie board in the surf below Geraldton and went snorkeling at Ningaloo Reef. I’m not confident in the water and hate putting my face in so they were both massive for me in ‘mind over matter’ 👊😜
    Cheers for the opportunity!

  114. Maria O’Loughlin says:

    Oh I would really love one of these gorgeous cameras been following your blog it’s amazing. Love love all the photos of London. I posted a pic of our tabby on your Facebook point:)

  129. What a fab giveaway!! My trusty Olympus Pen E-P5 is on its last legs as it’s been dropped by my kids 35,000 times (but it’s held up well, considering). I LOVED watching your journey on Instagram, it felt like I was there. So happy Olympus sent you in this fab trip. I’ll enter over on Facebook!

  130. Emailed entry & thank you! I love the real. Loved the real tears at the Lindo wing Sista! I was feelin ya x

  131. Hi there this is such an incredible gesture and I can’t but help to think this was meant to be as I’m in desperate need of a camera. I emailed you my entry thankyou so much 💜

  133. Chris Ennis says:

    I’m not a massive blog post reader but yours is interesting. Your pictures are top notch. I would love to visit England and the rest of the UK with my family someday.

    I have also posted a photo on your Facebook page of something a little closer to home. Thanks for your work and I wish everyone luck in the competition. 🙂

  134. Jacki Fanto says:

    Thank you so much for this generous gesture. I have been ogling all your beautiful imagery from the Olympus camera and am just desperate for that camera. I have commented on Facebook.

  135. Natalie Codling says:

    Tick. Have entered. Photo: big hand holding toddlers hand on sheets.
    I have googled this Olympus since seeing your terrific shots in London and Queenstown. It looks like a brilliant camera. I would love to know what lenses you used on high rotation whilst away?
    I adore taking photos and my trust old model iPhone is what I take them on- as I find that when I use to use my old big SLR it was too big to lug around with all the kids stuff. Anything smaller/ more convenient/ wifiable would be a Godsend.

  136. Nina Evans says:

    Have uploaded a photo to your Facebook post (name is Nina Bert on Facebook) xx

  140. Kim Bond says:

    Love following you Beth. Love your pics & I love taking photos also. Would love to win this awesome Olympus camera. Thanks for the opportunity. Posted a pic on your fb post 🤞📷

  141. The evening rain is thumping on the roof here, and I am so thrilled I got out in the earlier sunshine. Need to grab those moments whilst we can! (Also a huge fan of the spotty green frock). Have shared my pic over on the FB post. Cheers.

  142. Out with the old and in with the new technology I say. What a generous giveaway. I love trying to capture moments in time with the kids as I have with my daughter at a random chance meeting at The Mallee Rallee back in June last year. I didn’t know what to expect, nor did the kids but when the first couple of race cars flew around the bend, well the reaction was priceless and it was exactly what I was thinking about it all too. I have emiled you the pic Beth, Cheers.

  143. Kristina M says:

  154. Jodie Thomas says:

    Have uploaded a photo on your Facebook post that my 6yo son took of our rescue dog Penny – a Staffy x Shar Pei. Have had a few dogs before that the kids loved but sadly they had passed on. We decided to purchase a rescue dog and got Penny from the local pound. We don’t know her exact age or history but know that she was meant to live out her days with us. She is a temperamental, feisty little miss but we wouldn’t change it for the world.

  155. Your trip looks ahhhmaaazzziinnggg! What I wouldn’t do to have something as remarkable as a new camera that is so super easy to use in my hot chubby hands! My candid little shots of everyday life would be elevated to #art status! ( or am is that a little much :-))

    Post on the FB post. Here’s the story:

    A friend of ours ran a 100km trail run through the Blue Mountains that day. All of our husbands were his support crew and followed him around at the checkpoints. The wives, our kids and myself hung out at the fabulous Fairmont Resort Leura while we waited for the runners to come past. It was freezing!! As soon as our friend ran past we rounded up the kids and hightailed it to the hotel room to watch the main event of the day!! 😜 Oh what fun it was. Such a highlight being with friends and dreaming of our old lives and when we lived in old London Town. 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

    Hi Beth

    So many beautiful stories and photos. What a great opportunity for someone to win this camera. I’ve emailed you my photo. I must admit when I took the photo it made me think of you and your beautiful (prize winning!) floral entries in your local show. I think flowers have the ability to brighten any day no matter what and especially home grown roses! Love reading about your adventures and life. It is my dream to make a tree change one day and seeing how much you and your family love it, I can’t wait!

  169. Rachel Whelan says:

  174. Roma Smith says:

    Loved reading about your recent adventure, travel tips and seeing all your great snaps Beth. Also love the green dress, you’re rocking it! I have one very similar and gets lots of nice comments when wearing it. I have posted my photo and story on your FB page. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this competition….what a great prize to win. xx

  175. I love taking photos (I even studied photography at uni) and due to hubby deciding our Canon camera is now his baby, I have missed out on using our digital SLR camera. It would be nice to finally have a camera just for me. For my blog, my personal projects and for the family. Your recent trip to England for the royal wedding was wonderful to follow. Having a new Olympus camera would be a dream come true. It would be amazing if I was so lucky. Thanks so much OPRYMPUS.

    My image that I wanted to share was of all my three kids on the last day of the school holidays. It was just before term two started. I took it on my iPhone 6 and thought that it was a good image to change into a black and white.

    I love this image as all kids are looking at the camera and any parent knows how hard this is to accomplish. Plus each child looks happy and is looking natural.

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to enter this competition. I have emailed you my photograph.

    Hi Beth, how lovely it was to follow along on your Royal adventure 👏🏻🇬🇧 We had our own little wedding party at home with gorgeous girlfriends and our daughters. I had some interesting gems to share, too, after following along with Throne Rangers 😉 OMgosh, how wonderful it would be to win my own little OM-D E-M10 Mark III!!?? I have four sweet babes and have wanted to do a photography course and get myself a good camera since I became a Mum over 10 years ago. This would be such a great reason to fulfill that goal. Thanks for the chance! Photo uploaded to Facebook xxx

  195. Thanks Beth.

  200. Hi Beth, I have loved following along with you on your Royal adventures!! Your joy was infectious 😍🇬🇧👰🏻 We had a lovely night celebrating Hazz and Meg’s big day with a bunch of girlfriends and our little girls (photo posted on fb). I even had some Royal gems to share after listening along to the Throne Rangers! 😉 OMgosh, I would absolutely love to win my own spunky little OM-D E-M10 Mark III !! It would be wonderful to be to able to capture those special everyday moments in a more creative and beautiful way than my usual iPhone snaps. I have four babes aged between 10 and 4 and I’ve been wanting to do a photography course since before my eldest was born. This would be just the motivation I need to do something special for me (and them!) in capturing those special childhood memories. Thank you Beth and Olympus for the chance!

    Sorry if I’ve posted my comment twice…tried to post earlier but can’t see it xx

    I loved following along for your Royal Wedding Adventure. This time last year I embarked on my first Solo London and Europe trip and loved every minute of my journey, walking miles and miles each day discovering things around every corner to snap and falling more in love photography. My photo was taken on one of those days outside the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, what an iconic shot with the red phone boxes!
    The photos from your Olympus Camera are stunning and I’ll love to win it to use on a trip I’m planning to Canada! Maybe I might snap Meg’s and Harry stopping over for a quick trip down memory lane!

    Thanks,
    Sally

    I’m about to embark on my own British wedding journey, Beth! My Dad and I are making a once in a lifetime memory-making trip to Scotland for a family wedding. I’ve got my passport, a frock for the wedding, some brand new BETH Frankie4s for walking in style and enough cash for my first glass of bubbles when I land. Now I just need an amazing Olympus camera so I can capture all of these incredible sights and memories to come. Your London pics have me so excited to get there and be a part of it and if I could capture those memories half as well as you have, I would be thrilled xx (My pic is on your Facebook post)
