Through progressive cinematography with feature film-like story telling, we are capable of producing just about anything you can imagine.

Their Favorite Lens:

My favorite Sigma Cine lens is the Sigma 18-35mm T2 Cine. The images that it produces are incredibly sharp and have very nice characteristics. I love that there is nearly zero distortion on the edges and at either ends of the focal range. It is really just a do it all lens and saves time on set as we don’t have to swap between an 18mm, 24mm, or a 35mm as it’s all in one incredibly fast lens.

Adam Elmakias is a worldwide music photographer. He travels with the band and photographs them on and off stage. Originally from Wisconsin Adam spent most of his teenage years going to concerts and taking photos from the crowd. Through a mix of networking and what some would argue is borderline harassment he eventually wiggled himself on tour with a few bands. Fast forward 10 years he has spent more time on the road than in his living room. His accolades are numerous and work can be seen sprinkled across print and digital media of all sorts, myspace defaults, music magazines, and of course my mother’s Facebook page.

Adam’s Favorite Lens:

Sigma 20mm 1.4 -Wide open. Wide Angle. Just the right amount of distortion. Really lets me separate my subjects from the surroundings.

Jack’s Favorite Lens:

Sigma 14mm F1.8 Art. It didn’t take long for this lens to be the favorite in my bag. There’s just nothing quite like an ultra wide image of the Milky Way over a dramatic landscape. The fast aperture guarantees I’ll pick up extra detail at 14mm that simply is impossible to do in the same way with any other lens available.

Alice’s Favorite Lens: 

I would say my favorite Sigma lens is the 35mm f1.4 Art for Canon. It’s a perfect walk around lens for me when I travel and I like that it’s not too heavy or large to sling around all day (I also love the Sigma 85mm but need a wrist, neck, and shoulder massage after using it all day!). It’s also tack sharp, and I’m a total pixel peeper when it comes to my work.

Starting as a political news and celebrity portrait photographer in DC, Sam was instantly drawn to wedding photography as a space to promote more inventive ideas. Sam’s focus is on photographic techniques that are deceptively simple, but have potential to transform difficult or uninspiring shooting environments into one of a kind opportunities for every photo made.

Sam’s Favorite Lens:

My favorite sigma lens is the 24mm f/1.4. The colors are supreme, bokeh rendering is pleasing, and fantastically sharp – even at f/1.4, which is my preferred aperture for most everything. However, it does have a nice trick at f/16. When shooting into direct sunlight the lens creates a wonderful sunstar effect unlike any other 24mm lens for the Nikon f mount. It’s an other worldly look that I can’t get enough of!

Meg lives in rural West Michigan with her husband and three little boys. She loves spending time outdoors whenever possible. She bounces between lifestyle, fine art and environmental portraiture and is drawn to low light and color. Her go to lens outdoors is the Sigma Art 85mm. Outside of photography she enjoys snowboarding, camping, hiking, gardening and baking.

Meg’s Favorite Lens:

The Sigma Art 85mm is incredibly fast and sharp. I’m able to capture beautiful bokeh and compression all while photographing my children at a safe distance that let’s them be themselves.

Darren is best known for his Fine Art Photographic Pints. He also works with interior designers, home furnishing companies, and magazines in the USA, Canada and Germany.

Darren’s Favorite Lens:

For my general landscape work – hands down the Sigma 24-105 Art Lens.

This lens stays on my camera 95% of the time.. It’s a very versatile lens. Wide enough for landscapes and has a decent zoom. It’s razor sharp, makes beautiful prints and if I need to shoot a little wider I simply take 2 or 3 photos to stitch together.

It’s not too heavy and easily a lens you can walk around with all day without getting tired.
