Welcome to I AM NIKON!

This group is dedicated to inspiring photography in the spirit of the European I AM NIKON initiative. Feel free to join!

In this group we want to value ideas and passion and it doesn't matter if you are a professional photographer or not - all you need is a camera to capture those precious moments you’d love to share. Screen captures of favourites, photographs of artwork, edited and heavily photoshopped photos are nice, but if they don't fit to the spirit of this group - in some cases we'll remove them from the group pool.

Please share photos that you feel are your best, the ones that tell us something about you: who you are, who you want to be and what you have captured with your camera.

We also have our I Am Nikon Europe Flickr Photostream, which shows images from some of the photographers we’ve worked with as well as some of our own photos. You can find out the stories behind some of the Photostream images and comment on them on our I Am Nikon blog.

A few submission guidelines

Members can add up to five images to the group each day.

We are looking for original photos, therefore please only submit photos that you have taken yourself.

Remember the work you submit to the group represents you, so we recommend that you are selective and submit your best photographs.

Please tag your photos with the appropriate category tags: e.g. design, objects, details, macro, nature, landscapes, people, travel, places, party, fun and others.

This group is not for camera brand debates – so please refrain from starting these discussions. We’d like to keep this group focused on all great photography, regardless of camera make! The admins of the group reserve the right to remove any content that they feel is damaging or distracting from the spirit of the group.
