Hello everyone,

First of all, we would like to thank you for following the Olympus Passion project, an adventure that began in February 2017. It’s been more than three years, and this trip could not have been more exciting.

So many articles that we published throughout this period, both on the website and in the monthly digital magazine. Some, more inspirational, others more technical, many interviews and equipment reviews. We shared the work of new photographers, new photographic approaches, techniques and locations – outstanding photographs made with our favourite cameras, the Olympus M43 system.

But projects need to evolve. And after three years of disclosing the best work made with Olympus’ M43 system, it’s time for Olympus Passion for making a difference. And so the new PREMIUM AREA is born on our website, where you can access to articles and videos exclusively written and made for PREMIUM subscribers.

By subscribing to this new PREMIUM PLAN, not only you have access to these exclusive articles, but also many other advantages and unique offers:

  • ALL back* and future issues of the Olympus Passion Photography Magazine (* worth more than 90 euros)
  • ALL back* and future Special Editions (*worth more than 40 euros)
  • ALL back* and future inspirational videos (*worth 17 euros)
  • Unlimited access to the new PREMIUM area
  • Special Discounts and Offers (Workshops; etc…)

But of course, our BASIC yearly plan remains available.

If you are not our subscriber yet, then it’s time to join us!

We hope you enjoy the new PREMIUM plan and thank you for all your support for this project.

If you are already a subscriber and you wish to upgrade your current subscription to the new PREMIUM PLAN:

  1. Access your account HERE ( and sign in with your email address and password as always
  2. In this step click the ‘Subscriptions’ tab and then ‘Change plan’
  3. Now you can change from the BASIC plan to the new PREMIUM PLAN
  4. Finally, the system will only apply a proportional value to the remaining charge and change the plan immediately.

Simple, right? But if you need any help in the process of updating to the PREMIUM PLAN, please contact us at and we will be happy to help you.

Have a great weekend,
Maurício & Hugo
The Olympus Passion Team


  1. I am somewhat disappointed after subscribing to your publication and now finding out that there is an additional cost to get the full benefits of a membership. It is this parceling and tiered approach to get more money out of consumers that ends up souring people’s desire to be a customer. We customers don’t like it when the airlines do it, and neither will we like it when subscription publications do it.

    1. Dear Eric,
      Thank you for subscribing to our magazine and for sharing your feedback here.
      We see the situation differently. This way, the customer has more options and can choose the plan that best fits his needs and interests.
      To receive the monthly magazine, the Basic Plan that you subscribed to will continue. As will the weekly articles on the website and a few more surprises to come this year. But anyone who wants, for a fair price, to benefit from all the content, has that option. And we believe this is good, having options to choose from.

      1. Soory, thought the Basic Plan’s price to be the fair price for the OP’s content.
        When purchasing the magazine 3 years ago, the promise was the full content. Why a premium content in 2020 to give me the feeling of being downgraded…
        No, definitively a sour strategy

  2. Sorry to stop my membership after three years; very disappointing “trick” with your premium subscription.
    Not the way I want to be treatet as a “good” customer.

    1. Dear Mathias,
      We’re sorry to hear that you feel that way. We intend to give our readers options to choose from. And the truth is that nothing has changed, because the Basic plan continues exactly as it has always been, there was no downgrade.
