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.

You’ve almost definitely been exposed to images Sara has created in big campaigns for the likes of

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:
