The SIGMA Road Trip


SIGMA-Liner-außen.jpeg

In the summer months in particular (from March to October, to be exact) SIGMA will be traveling a lot to many events in Germany where many photography fans come together.

With their silver Air Stream caravan which the company calls its SIGMAliner you can’t miss them. The project is a great adventure because visitors can test some products there and get useful information from professional experts. You can even borrow different products for half an hour.

Last year we also attended the “horzonte Environmental Photography Festival” in Zingst as visitors. This year, unfortunately, we couldn’t participate due to a busy schedule. But this year, SIGMA was also present at the event to show a colorful variety of products to all the visiting photographers.

For all those among you who don’t want to miss the chance to visit the SIGMAliner – it’s currently been to Berlin at the “Classic Days” . This week the SIGMAliner will move on to the “Roadrunners Race 61“ , which will take place at the Aerospace Museum Finowfurt, which is about an hour away from the German capital.

Then it continues its journey to the Kitesurf Cup in Sylt  . There the SIGMAliner will stay from June 27 to July 02 before moving on to Warnemünde from July 21 to July 23 . Then it will make a stop in Sylt again from July 26 to July 30  – at the shores of the North and the Baltic Seas SIGMA seems to have a great time. Zingst will be the next stop as the Autumn of Photography  will be celebrated there. It will take place from September 29 to October 02.

The SIGMAliner and its crew will finish their long and picturesque road trip on October 21, where they will stay at the Pirmasenser Fototage  in Rheinland-Pfalz until October 22.

So there are plenty of opportunities to test your dream lens at a dream location combined with a wonderful holiday in Northern Germany.

Enjoy!

As some of you may already know, I belong to the persons who experience wanderlust like very ordinary emotional chaos. At almost every hour at day and at night I’d love to hop on the next plane and explore new worlds. The destination itself isn’t even important for me – the main thing is getting away.

Easter, according to a recent newspaper report, is supposed to be the best season to visit Venice and its little nearby islands. “Venice… First time here?” somebody asked me. No. For another time. But this time only beautiful Venezia wasn’t enough – after the gray winter I was longing for as many colors as possible. That’s why I took the ferryboat to Burano. This island can already be seen from far away. The leaning clock tower and the colorful houses of the tiny village on the island spread their colors into the distance.

Easter in China

It was time for me again to leave home for exploring unknown, faraway places. As you already know me, my camera and me are used to simply hop on the next train, bus or plane in order to travel to other countries.

This time, through mere coincidence than big considerations, we travelled to China. (I would like to thank at this point all the travel websites that enabled me to find very easily the best offers in such a short time).

“Photography is a strange phenomenon. In spite of the use of that technical instrument, the camera, no two photographers, even if they were at the same place at the same time, come back with the same pictures. The personal vision is usually there from the beginning; result of a special chemistry of background and feelings, traditions and their rejection, of sensibility and voyeurism. You trust your eye and you cannot help but bare your soul. One’s vision finds of necessity the form suitable to express it.”

Inge Morath, Life as a Photographer, 1999
