I am a current SIGMA America Ambassador. I've used SIGMA lenses for my entire career, and exclusively since 2015. They're (IMO) the fastest and sharpest lenses on the market.
Contact SIGMA for scheduling me as a speaker if you'd like to have them there for your event or conference.
I am a 6ft tall redhead and I am very animated, so my classes attract an audience even when people hadn't originally planned on staying to watch them! Contact SIGMA for scheduling me as a speaker if you'd like to have them there for your event or conference.
