Sapna Reddy – @sapnareddy

Sapna’s Instagram account is filled with brilliant landscapes from all corners of the Earth. After a decade using Nikon, she made the switch to Sony and has nothing but good things to say – “The focusing ability in low light/low contrast scenery blows my mind.” She has 25.4k followers and her photos have been used by or featured in NatGeo, NBC, Apple, Adobe and more. The photo below shows the diverse landscapes at Death Valley, and was taken using her Sony α7R III with the 16-35mm f/2.8 G Master.

Scott Wesson – @thetravelvibe

Scott is another member of the Alpha Collective who is always up to travel, capturing impressive landscapes wherever he goes. He often makes his way into the frame to show just how magnificent these locations are, and just how tiny we are compared to them. Last year he was a part of #AICdoesCanada and brought plenty of Sony gear along for the trip. Scroll through his photos for a true glimpse into a Sony photographer who is choosing to #BeAlpha. This stunning shot below was taken in Norway using his Sony α7 II.

Renan is a Sony Artisan of Imagery whose work captures and tells rich human stories with a strong sense of place in the landscapes and cultures that define modern documentary style.
