A little French adventure with the Sony A7

The ski industry has generously given me the most fabulous friends over the years and I am extremely grateful for it. I have some truly inspirational lady friends all over the world and I was able to meet with many of them in France a few weeks back for a French mini break! 7 of us congregated in Capbreton at my great friend Beanie Milne Home (marketing manager for Faction Skis) and her man Xavier De La Rue’s summer pad (thanks SO much for the hospitality guys..) for a blissful 4 days of beach & surf, biking & long boarding, oysters & wine, gelato & shopping. It was as glorious as it sounds.

I took along my Sony A7 with Zeizz 24-70mm lens for some fun snaps of my great pals in the sun. Im new to this camera and purchased it recently for this such occasion, for when I would love to have my DSLR with me but don’t want to carry it around as Im on holiday (but still can’t stop myself taking snaps). The Sony A7 is the lightest full frame camera on the market and fits neatly into my hand bag (yes I do own a hand bag). I can take it effortlessly around with me and shoot images I would previously only be able to get with a DSLR. Viva le revolution of the mirror less full frame camera! I thought I would share some happy snaps from my holiday to show you what you can achieve with one of these revolutionary cameras.
