I also haven't heard of her; I enjoy my photography as it stands, and am happy others are doing so. Whoever she is, I wish her well - I suspect her blog gets a few more hits than mine but that's OK...

This is undoubtedly a feather in Sony's cap now, but a year from now she may go with something else. One never plans to dump everything, but some times your own ideal camera comes along with the 'wrong' name on the front. It would be nice to have the resources to do such things, I did it once and who really knows if anything better came of it.

This is her official site http://emily-tebbetts.com / Out of 23,000 applicants, she was chosen to be the photographer of Taylor Swift for one day.

And here's the Sony commercial with Taylor Swift. Emily is the woman with the camera.

People all over the world offered her job after seeing her work but she accepted to work for hit REcord.org

Just have an open mind and read her blog, why she dumped Canon Mark III for Sony A99.

So what is your point exactly? You fancy her or Taylor Swift. And you are on the mission from God.

What's his point? His point is that he's answering your question of "Who the heck she is after all?" He's bringing a bit of light to your ignorance.

Whatever she touches reeks of Sony ( hitrecord powered by Sony) - are you still surprised she is all over the moon with Sony. That is called LOYALTY to whoever pays. Still proves nothing about gear.

I think the point about the gear was what she wrote in her blog, which are concrete points about the advantages that the A99 brings to the table compared to her Canon body. I think her points about the "gear" are quite valid-- and I say this as a lifelong Canon user. Canon is definitely dragging their heals these days. They've fallen behind in sensor technology, in AF technology, in mirrorless cameras, etc. Their EOS M is waaaay behind the other mirrorless cameras that have been in the market. Meanwhile, Sony is really pushing forward with great new technologies. In comparison, Canon appears to be moving forward at a snail's pace. It's getting very frustrating. I remember a few months ago, reading an article in some Canon exec said that the company they were most concerned about-- with regard to competition-- was Sony. At that time, I didn't understand why they were worried about Sony competition, but now I understand!

YAY! she can finally get a sharp photos of her cats. OMG, OMG...
