Ronkonkoma, NY—Sigma Corporation of America added legendary wedding photographer Andy Marcus to its star-studded Sigma Pro program. Marcus is presenting at the 2016 WPPI conference in the Sigma Theater.
Marcus is joined by other Sigma Pro members, including Jen Rozenbaum. Rozenbaum is launching her new photo series, Shamelessly Feminine: A Modern Take on Iconic Women, at booth 521. WPPI is the premier annual convention for wedding and portrait photographers. It is being held March 7–9, 2016 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“The Sigma Pros offer a valuable resource to the photographic community. For the past six years, they have presented informative lectures, seminars and workshops to photographic groups and university students across the USA,” said Dave Metz, director of Market Support Operations, Sigma. “Andy Marcus will be a great addition to the group, with his decades-long experience in the high profile wedding market in the New York City area. Sigma is proud to give back to the photo industry with these outstanding photographers.”
Along with Marcus, Sigma Pro membership expands to nine accomplished photographers. They all personally use and educate others on the company’s cameras, lenses, flashes and accessories. Other members include Steve Chesler, Liam Doran, David FitzSimmons, Judy Host, Roman Kurywczak, Robert O’Toole and James Schmelzer.
For nearly 40 years, Marcus has built his studio’s reputation for uncompromising quality in posed portraits and photojournalistic-style wedding images. It’s this reputation along with his dedication to personal service that brings celebrity and high-end clients to his studio. Alongside his son, Brian, he has photographed the weddings of Eddie Murphy, Donald Trump, Kelsey Grammer and Mary Tyler Moore. Other clients include Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Chynna Phillips and LeBron James.
This year at WPPI, Marcus is presenting “Raise the Bar: Photographing Amazing Weddings.” In this workshop, he teaches WPPI attendees how to select the right lens to shoot stunning wedding photos and increase sales.
