AMBASSADORSHIPS & SPONSORS
Pro Team Ambassador Tamron
Alex is a Pro Team Ambassador for Tamron’s Super Performance Series Lenses.
Tamron is a leading Japanese manufacturer of high-quality optics and one of only eight major lens makers worldwide. Founded in 1950, Tamron lenses are recognised for their innovative specifications, superior resolution, breakthrough compact designs and smart solutions that make them so easy to use.
Alex is a prolific user of Tamron’s Super Performance Series Lenses in her studio, on location and in the wild. Her kit contains a 24-70mm, 70-200mm, 150 – 600mm, 35mm, 45mm, 15-35mm, 85mm and a 90mm macro lens. She occasionally uses the 18-400mm and 16-300mm lenses and particularly loves Tamron’s updated range of Generation Two (G2) lenses.
As a Pro Team Ambassador, Alex is featured In Tamron media campaigns. She has presented for Tamron Australia at industry trade shows and events in Australia and the USA. In November 2016, Alex presented her animal photography seminar for Tamron USA at the famous B&H Camera Superstore Event Space in New York.
In her words: “I’ve been exclusively using the range of Tamron Super Performance Series lenses for the past 4 years and found them to be exceptional. Overall the Tamron SP lenses more than meet my requirements as a professional photographer and I choose to use no other.”
Pro Team Ambassador Spider Holster
Alex is the first female Australian ambassador for innovative USA based company Spider Holster. She uses the Spider Duel and Single Holster systems whenever she’s photographing outdoors, and especially on location.
“I’m constantly on the go when I’m photographing animals. Wearing my Spider Holster means I have freedom of movement in any environment with my camera body comfortably secured at my hip. When I see my next potential photo, the holster’s quick-release function allows me instant access to my camera while not taking my eyes off the shot. Spider Pro holsters are now an integral part of my camera kit. Wherever I go in the world, they go too.”
Brand Ambassador Seagate
Alex’s most recent ambassadorship is with Seagate, a global leader in data storage technology. She uses two 10 TB Seagate hard drives in her Synology Diskstation DS718+ NAS (Networked Attached Storage) that back up her image library. She travels with 2TB Lacie Rugged portable drives.
“Protecting my clients’ images is an absolute priority. I take thousands of images each year so I need fast, reliable storage and retrieval devices to keep my data safe. Whether we run a business or just use a home PC, none of us can stick our heads in the sand when it comes to preserving our visual memories. My current Seagate setup easily takes care of my data storage and gives me peace of mind.”
