Does anyone know where I can find a wireless flash system which has a dedicated hot shoe on the sender, to fit an Olympus E300?
I have studio flash units which have their own slave units but can only use them by firing the camera flash and destroying the lighting effect I have set up.
Universal hot shoes do not work and so far all the wireless systems I have seen are for other camera makes or have a universal shoe.
Please help

I had an E300 a long time ago, it has a standard Olympus hot shoe. The pin that fires the flash is standard across many camera makes including Olympus.

You should have no issues using any of the radio flash triggers on the market, place the transmitter on the camera hot shoe, when you press the shutter the radio signal will be sent to the receivers which then fire the flash. No TTL with this way so you will need to use a flash meter or experience to set the flash power settings.

If you search on Amazon for

radio flash trigger Olympus

you should find a wide range of prices to choose from.
