The Blog: See what
Sigma is saying.


This has been a summer of fun and exploration. Going to different places, and seeing things with new eyes makes me feel alive. I was lucky enough to have a Sigma 24-35mm F2 Art lens along for the ride. This lens is so versatile, I was able to shoot beautiful landscapes at the beach and close-ups of flowers.

Sigma Lens Workshops are sweeping the nation, and attendees are having a blast. These two-part workshops combine lecture based learning with a hands-on photo shoot. Attendees learn from Sigma technical representatives, and get firsthand experience with Sigma lenses!

If you like the wild west and country music then you have to visit The Stockyards in Fort Worth, TX. There are beautiful photography opportunities around every corner, and the smell of smoked meat fills the air. I took three Sigma lenses to accompany me on this trip: the brand new 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM | Art24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art, and 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary lenses.

Getting up early to capture this sunrise with the 14-24mm Art lens was totally worth it. The light spilling through the clouds is breathtaking.



For many, the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip make it the perfect destination. On the other end, many landscape travelers go to Vegas because it’s the nearest airport to Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and many well-knows national parks. Many photographers overlook the great landscapes Red Rock Canyon offers just outside of Vegas, perfect for a day trip.

This image is shot with a Sigma 14mm Art lens. It was shot handheld while I was hiking through Red Rock Canyon. This vast landscape is captured beautifully with a wide-angle lens. I love the little burst of sun.



With a little practice and some practical guidance, it is easy to make amazing food photographs of your own culinary creations. Whether you are a beginning food blogger, or an experienced chef who’s ready to move beyond the smartphone snap, making Insta—worthy shots has never been easier with a beginner’s DSLR and a sharp zoom lens. The ability to zoom in close for details and that amazing background blur will really set your photos apart in a sea of snack and cake shots.
