    I’ve been a long-time SIGMA aficionado, going right back to the first DP1.Over the years I’ve used the Merrill, the Quattro and more recently the fp. My travel photography has evolved from shooting with compact, fixed-lens cameras to using the SIGMA fp, which allows for a richer, creative experience with the ability to switch lenses. I can even now borrow my husband’s vintage Leica lenses as they are both L-Mount. I come from an artistic background that isn’t limited to photography and draws on painting, graphic design and other creative mediums. This definitely plays a big role in the way that I approach my photographic work.

    * Images without photograph data have been created with SIGMA fp and other lenses produced by SIGMA.

    The first thing I noticed was how compact I series lenses are, and how perfectly balanced they feel on the SIGMA fp body. When you first put the lens on the camera it really feels like it has always been there. And when you start to use it, the quality feel of the material and the smoothness of the aperture ring are extremely impressive. I love the possibilities the L-Mount presents. I will definitely use it with the fp but I’m curious of the other kits I could imagine with it.

    Can you tell us about your experience as a fashion designer/stylist? How did you come to be working in this field?

    I’m a creative director and style consultant. My main speciality is fashion but my job requires 360 vision, so I’m always looking at art (old and new), architecture, design, beauty, tech, food and lifestyle in general. In my job you have to be able to absorb vast quantities of information while being able to distillate the right kind and the right amount for the client that’s facing you. I’ve always been very curious and very passionate about images and their meaning. I love to say that my work is above else about telling stories. The trick is to tell them well, at the right place and time.
