I traveled to London for the first time ever, but it was also the first city in Europe for me. I organized 6 shoots with local inspiring and professional models to get some really great shots from. I also got a new lens, Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART for my Canon 6D camera, and that’s literally all I took with me to do the photography. I usually use 24-70mm 2.8L Canon, and Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 G2, but these two lenses were not ideal for light easy travel. And I saw what the 35mm lens with a wipe open aperture could do too, which was very impressive… so I got the sigma.

I got a chance to meet with local people to model for me all around Central London. Here is a summary of the shots
