Join Sony Alpha Communities On Facebook, Pinterest Hosted By Sony Ambassador Mark Galer

Mark Galer is a Sony Alpha Ambassador, an Adobe Ambassador and an author for Focal Press. Galer will be contributing to Sony Mirrorless Pro. In this first article, he shares some of the resources he’s created for the Sony professional. 

If you are new to the Sony Alpha E-Mount cameras (A7 series and A6000) or you would like to be part of a broader Alpha community I have created some groups where you can share your images and experiences with the Alpha E-Mount cameras. Your questions are quickly answered and the forums are moderated by myself and Sean Ellwood (an Alpha Product Specialist for Sony Australia). We strive to keep the forums free of the trolls that make so many photography discussion forums unpleasant. Amongst our group members we have experienced professional photographers, educators and International Sony Alpha Artisans such as Brian Smith, Brian Matiash and Jason Lanier.

The groups are supported by the Alpha Creative Skills YouTube channel and group members have access to instructional PDFs that are designed to  educate photographers in the use of Alpha cameras, camera craft and post-production editing skills. You can download the A7 Custom Settings PDF from this link A7-Custom-Settings-v4. Click on one of the links below to join a community (a Custom Settings PDF is also available for A6000 owners when you join this group).
