D-Photo - Virtues of diversity
Continuing our series of interviews with the prestigious
photographers who will be speaking at this year’s Infocus photography conference, D-Photo catches up
with the uniquely talented Sara Orme.
Sara produces beautiful work across a staggering array of styles, from fashion, beauty, and advertising to
lifestyle, documentary portraiture, and fine art. Uniting her diverse portfolio is a superb technical mastery
and an organic ability to convey emotion that permeates all she produces.

Tourism New Zealand, Max Fashions, and Campaign for Wool, amongst a long list of other impressive
clients. But with a background in both psychology and art history, the photographer is just as at home
outside the commercial world, shooting her own self-directed art projects.
Sara will be delivering a talk entitled ‘Traversing different genres in 20 years’ that is sure to be full of
excellent advice accrued over a truly impressive career. We put a few quick questions to Sara so you can
get to know her a little better before the big event:
