She teaches through a variety of outlets including mentorship sessions, a podcast, Instagram, and of course TikTok! She is frequently asked why she switched from Canon to Sony and in the TikTok below she explains. Her husband began shooting weddings with her, and he was shooting on Sony. Once she experienced the mirrorless technology, the incredible autofocus, and the low light capabilities – she was hooked.

In the TikTok below, he describes feeling frustrated with “Canon’s lack of innovation” and “outrageous prices.” So he switched to the Sony FX3 and just recently added the Sony FX6 to his kit.

Allie & Ryan Perkes - @theperkesinlife

Okay, this might not be a formal “switch” from another brand, but we loved this video! Allie Perkes surprised her husband with his dream camera - the Sony Alpha 7 IV and the Sony 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G. Her husband, Ryan (@RyanPerkesvideo) loves filming wildlife in Idaho, but he didn’t have camera equipment, he had been attaching his phone to a scope to film. His pure delight was heartwarming and we can’t wait to see what Ryan creates!
