The Best of Learning with Nikon

Our partnership with Nikon Professional Services has been one of our longest relationships in the lifetime of our workshops. Nikon has always held educating the next generation of photographers as a top priority — and at the Summit it is no different.

At our photography workshops, Nikon allows photographers to learn and improve on the latest equipment. They provide in-person technical support as well as consignment bodies and lenses for use throughout the workshop time. All participants, whether they are Nikon shooters or not, are able to take advantage of this opportunity.
