In a joint statement, Nikonians.org and Rocky Nook announced today they have joined forces. The international community of Nikon enthusiasts partnered with the Santa Barbara-based photography publisher to launch a new program of books for photographers geared toward both professionals and advanced amateurs. The project, under the Nikonians Press banner, will mostly cover Nikon equipment and books in the series will go well beyond the scope of technical manuals. Written by experienced photographers, they will help photographers become better at producing high quality images more efficiently, and to achieve consistent results.
Written in an easy friendly style, the books from Nikonians Press will cut through the technical jargon to help readers understand not only their camera, but also the wealth of photographic advantages it can deliver.
Books from Nikonians Press will strive to convey what Nikonians.org is about: a friendly, reliable, informative, and passionate Nikon users community. The first books in the series, currently in production and scheduled for publication early next year, will cover the newest Nikon systems.
Nikonians.org is a non-profit organization founded in 2000, with more than 100,000 members from nearly 150 countries, mostly known through their popular community website www.nikonians.org.
