One of the fun things about my job is keeping up with all the new stuff that’s happening in the industry. Whether it be a new camera, flash diffuser, software product or just some cool industry news, I love getting the early scoop. I especially love when I hear great news about my friends.
Today, Nikon announced some great leaders to their ambassador program, and I’m happy to be one of the first to congratulate Doug Gordon, Tamara Lackey, Blair Bunting and Bambi Cantrell to the esteemed position of Nikon Ambassador. They don’t announce new ambassadors very often, so this is big news!
From Nikon’s site:
“Nikon Ambassadors are some of the most talented and influential visual artists working in the business today. These gifted, spirited storytellers go above and beyond most, and are admired for their passion, energy and commitment to their craft. Their investment in and trust of the Nikon brand are cornerstones to their image-making abilities.
As a loyal Nikon partner, Nikon Ambassadors’ commitment and contributions to the photographic industry throughout their careers have influenced and inspired photographers around the world, while their desire to educate and empower other image-makers around them has become a part of their daily business. From workshops to trade show platforms, online learning and social media, Nikon Ambassadors represent the most versatile and ambitious photographers today. These visual artists are respected around the globe for their vision and accomplishments.
The dedication to advancing the art of visual storytelling while embracing and mastering the latest technologies and trends in the field are paramount to these photographers being selected as Nikon Ambassadors.
As the top photography artists and visual storytellers of this era, these contemporary photographers’ advanced techniques, unprecedented creativity and tenacious approach to imaging solutions is demonstrated assignment after assignment, each and every time they pick up a Nikon camera.”
Congrats, you guys!
