Nikon Ambassador Program Launches!

Aug 26

In News at 6:14am

Nikon had big news last week, launching at long last an official Ambassador program, which includes a small field of long time Nikon pros. Very humbled to be included with this group of stalwarts. I could go through the list and make some guesses, but suffice it to say, there’s most likely about 400 years or so of experience behind the camera sprinkled amongst us.

Which is not say the group is a bunch of  grizzled old salts. There are fresh, young, talented faces like Lucas Gilman, Andrew Hancock and Dixie Dixon mixed in with veterans such as Ron Magill, Bill Frakes, Cliff Mautner, Corey Rich, and Moose Peterson. In terms of skill set, you have the makings of a really good picture agency here, as the various members of this diverse crowd can pretty much cover the waterfront, photographically, from fashion to sports to news to wildlife to portraits and weddings.


Many thanks to Nikon for stepping forward in a good direction to partner a community of photogs who have shot their cameras through all sorts of subject matter–politics, war zones, Super Bowls, Fashion Weeks, Nat Geo ends-of-the-earth type locations, bridezillas–you name it. Further thanks go to my blood brother, Mike Corrado of Nikon, for whom shaping this program and pushing it to become reality was a long and steadfast labor. Good job all around.

Congrats Joe! This one’s a long overdue recognition that is really, really well deserved.

Congrats Joe for being one of the Nikon ambassadors. You have always been one of my favorite shooters out there.

Hey Mr. McNally — what a great honor for all these folks! Glad that nikon has finally made it ‘official.’ What an amazing plethora of experience and education all wrapped into one convenient package. :)

I’ll be seeing you at Photoshop World soon — in your characters on location shoot, all the way from Colorado! Hoping I can manage to be an “impromptu model” volunteer during one of your conference classes — would love a photograph, and what other 17 year old can say he got his senior picture taken by Joe McNally?!

See you in Las Vegas. Always love blog posts as the highlight of my evenings.

I would have imagined Nikon would be tripping over themselves to get Jay Maisel on that list…

Congratulations! Just hearing about this program! I’ve been a huge Nikon fan and user since I left to law to become a freelance travel photographer and writer just five years ago. Way to go, Nikon!
