It looks like I'll be working on a special photo project in the Fukushima prefecture in a few weeks, and I just found out that Sigma Photo produces their Art Lenses in Fukushima!!! What?!
Apparently, Sigma has their Art Lens factory in the city of Aizu, and I'm actually planning to shoot IN AIZU for this project, because the city has deep roots as a feudal samurai area! (How cool!)
I just sent a blind email to Sigma USA. I hope they respond! I would absolutely LOVE to visit (and shoot photos at) the Sigma factory. [UPDATE: Their Marketing Manager responded to my email today!!! Thank you!!!]
I don't own any Sigma lenses though, only Canon L glass. I wonder IF they would let me shoot their factory as part of my Fukushima promotional project, and IF they would let me use some of their Sigma Art lenses for this particular shoot? (I'm imagining they might not want a photographer shooting their Sigma Art Lens factory using non-Sigma glass, right?)Read More
