Marc Farb, ANEC (NY) is a Technical Representative for Sigma. For Marc, photography is more than just a job, or a way to earn a steady income; it is a way of life. Even more, it’s his chance to capture and preserve special moments in time, showing them off to the world in a way they may never get to see them.
He was given his first camera at the age of 8 years old and by the time he was 14 he had his own darkroom. Marc eventually became a freelance commercial photographer and from there, he took a Tech Rep position with Olympus Imaging for the first stop in his career in the photo industry. Since then he has worked with such companies as Xrite, Ilford, Mamiya, Prophoto, and Sekonic.
Marc continues to do freelance work and one of his clients is a major hospital system in the New York City area. Experienced in medical and surgical photography, his work for them has included a variety of assignments. Currently, Marc’s assignment with Sigma includes technical application support from the corporate office, as well as extensive traveling for photo conventions and trade shows. Proficient in Photoshop and Lightroom on a PC or Mac, he teaches classes throughout the USA and Canada on photographic topics that range from pixel to print, and all points between.
