New Sony Global Imaging Ambassadors

At the Alpha awards in Sydney this week Sony Australia announced that Craig Parry and myself (Mark Galer) were being promoted to Sony Global Imaging Ambassadors. I am proud and honoured to embrace this role.

I started my Alpha journey with the A100 (winning the camera at the 2006 Australian press launch in far north Queensland). As a photographer who has always embraced imaging innovation I was more than happy to then adopt the A99 DSLT and NEX7 mirrorless camera as my ‘tools-of-the-trade‘ when I was appointed as the Australian Imaging Ambassador in 2012.

The rapid pace of innovation has kept me on my toes ever since with the full frame E-mount cameras, released in 2013, ending my long-time use of DSLR cameras – I started my digital imaging journey with the very first Kodak DCS DSLR camera in 1991.

This week I have taken delivery of the jaw-dropping Sony A9 – the most technologically advanced camera yet released.

I look forward to my imaging journey with Sony and the images that have yet to be captured – I hope you will keep me company on my Alpha adventure.
