Dear Nikon, Here’s the List You Really Need.

September 14, 2017 | carrie

It came to our attention yesterday (thanks, Jason Vinson!) that Nikon put out an interesting list. Not just any old list, but a list of their top ambassadors in Asia (although, not all are from Asia). To the surprise of many, not a single woman made it to that list. But why should we be shocked? It’s 2017 and sexism is still a thing, especially in the photography industry. Look at all of the popular conferences and workshops and tell me that the guy to girl ratio isn’t lopsided or in some cases neglected entirely.

While Nikon might have opened the door to more conversation about sexism in the industry, they actually aren’t the only company at fault. Check out how many women show up in similar programs for Sony, Canon, and Olympus. It’s an industry-wide problem. What can we do about it? We can cry and complain and hope that it goes away OR we can do a better job of highlighting the truly amazing women in our industry.

So, Nikon, if you’re listening (which I hope you are), here’s a very long list of women from all around the world who use your equipment and deserve the same opportunities as the men who use Nikon. I hope the team over at Nikon will use this list for future ambassadorship opportunities.

    Currently have the D800 and a D300 as a back up. I have also owned the D2hs and started with the D3000.

  5. Love love love this list! I was in complete shock to see Nikon not include women and now to not even hear them acknowledge their mistake 🙁 I shoot Film on my Pentax along side Nikons D750.

  6. I use Nikon! I love using their products and love that we created this list to open up an honest conversation about sexism/women in the industry. Thanks, Junebug! xx

  7. Born and raised a Nikon user.

  8. I’m a Nikon user, and so frustrated by Nikon’s list!! Thank you for making this list and supporting women in the industry!

  18. Nikon user for 8 years! Cheers! xo

  19. Yes, I’m a woman and I’ve been a Nikon shooter since 1998!! thanks for publishing this list!

  20. Carrie, thank you. I’m proud of my Nikon ladies here, who work hard and get it done, who drag themselves in on Saturday nights and can barely move on Sunday from pounding pavement or ballroom floor, who market, and sell, and push themselves hard, and never give up.

    Thank you Carrie, and thank you my ladies for being an inspiration.

    Leah

  21. My first camera was a Nikon D90 when I was in high school. My aunt always used Nikon film cameras and recommended me to Nikon early on. This year I bought my Nikon D750 which I just love.

  22. Love this! I shoot dual 750s, I have another Nikon body as my backup, Nikon lenses. I even put the SD cards in and carry them around all by myself! 🙄 As much as I love my gear, it’s hard to look past this.

  23. Nikon shooter for life over here!

    Thank you so much for this list. Junebug, you are amazing.

  37. I saw the Nikon post 32 men… was amazed at marginalising their market.
    A friend highlighted me to a great female Nikon photographer who spoke directly to Nikon today regarding this 🙌🏻
    I’m a Nikon user and was amazed by the short sightedness of the marketing department

  38. Nikon user and female! Nice list! Keep them coming!!!

  39. I’ve been shooting Nikon for 10 years now and would feel honored to be added to your amazing list 🙂

  40. I’m a female photog (but my husband is my second shooter). Does that count? 😊

  41. Hey! Junebug member, Nikon user! I had a winning photo in your 2017 Best or the Best engagement using Nikon equipment! Thanks for making this post. Keep kicking ass, ladies!

  42. THANK YOU for this! I use Nikon gear alongside my film gear, and until the recent happenings, I was very proud to do so. This certainly helps! xo

  43. Nikon user for 10+ years! Thanks for writing this!

  44. I LOVE THAT!
    Can I just say: “comment if you’re a woman photographer that uses Nikon… Canon or Sony.” Because as you said, it’s not only Nikon, it’s the whole indutry that needs a badass list.

    • Thanks for the feedback, Beatrice. While other companies are at fault, this post is really directed at Nikon, so I’d like to keep it that way so there is no confusion. At the end of the day, my hope is to give Nikon a list of hundreds (hopefully thousands) of Nikon shooters who are women so that Nikon can refer back to this list when brainstorming future photographer partnerships.

  45. 😉 Thanks JuneBug!! For bringing light to this situation!
    Ladies, let’s keep killing it and break that damn glass ceiling!

  46. So happy you’ve made this post! U.K. Based wedding tog here, Nikon is all that I’ve ever used!

  47. awesome idea!!!

  48. I don’t use Nikon, but Madison Short (www.madisonrshort.com) does and is THE BOMB!

    Love you guys for this SnapBack!

  49. Hey hey! Lifetime Nikon user as well, their list of ambassadors was a huge bummer. So much lady talent to be seen!

  50. I use the Nikon d750!

  51. I’m a Nikon shooter too 🙂

  52. Wicked list of amazingly talented (female) photographers that shoot with Nikon! Well worded post as well.

  53. I use Nikon too. Great job putting this list together.

  54. I’m a female photographer who shoots Nikon!

  55. Great list!! D750’s all the way here too! 🙂

  56. I’ve shot Nikon since 1997!

  57. Hell yes! There are so many amazing women photographers out there shooting Nikon.

    I shoot Nikon and always have.

    So does Kim Smith Miller & Shannon at Rosan Weddings <3

  58. This is an excellent list.

  59. Brilliant blog post. I’m a lady with a gender neutral name and I use Nikon. I was very disappointed with Nikon and their oversight. I even wrote a blog post about gender diversity in professional photography and estimated that the UK market is 25-45% female. With 80% of all photography degree graduates being female this is only set to increase. So just where are all the women?!?!?

  60. I am Canon but heck YES to this list and these ladies and heck YES to you speaking up <3

  61. Love this so much! ♥️ Love seeing the work of so many inspiring & creative women that don’t get the credit they deserve.

  62. Jasmin Pickens from Sugar and Lace Studio needs to be on this list… she shoots Nikon and is freaking amazing.

  63. Yeees! Fellow Nikon Woman here d800 & d810 💛

  64. I’ve been shooting nikon for years! Love my d610. How to we submit to qualify for the list?

  65. Hi! Thanks for this list. I have been a Nikon user for years.

  66. I’ve been a Nikon Pro for over 10 years. I’m really happy to see this list here! Well done, Junebug!

  67. Great thoughts!

  148. Nikon Woman here!

  149. Hi
    I am a Nikon user, i use Nikon D800 and Nikon D700

  150. Hey, Nikon user here too!

    Brilliant idea, and thanks for your support. It’s so important for our female photographers to be visible right across the industry.

  151. D750s baby! <3

  152. I’ve never used any other cameras but Nikon. I’ve owned D610, D700 and currently own two D750 and shoot with all Nikon lens (24mm,50mm, 85mm, 105mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm) as well as multiple SB910 flashes. I’ve always felt proud to be a Nikon owner…until now. Make this right so that I want to pick up and use your gear again.

  153. I’m a Nikon user and the wedding I shot last year was in the running for the best wedding for 2016 with Junebug Wedding – I use a Nikon D700 and a Nikon D800 as my main bodies for Wedding Photography. I’d definitely like to see the women in this industry celebrated as much as our male counterparts. xx

  154. I’m an Aussie wedding & portrait photographer who has shot Nikon for the past 15 years!! Currently shooting on two D750s.

  155. Hi I would love to be included in this list. Jenna Leigh Photography. I use all Nikon products.

  156. Nikon D750 and D700

  157. I do, although I mostly use their older film gear F100, F80 and FM. As I’m primarily a film photographer these days. But I do have a pair of D750s 🙂

  158. This is an epic list thank you so much! and thank you for including me! 😀 Just to say, my photography name is Ruth Leavett, not Ruth Damm.. would you be able to amend it? My fault confusing people on the interwebs.. THANK YOU! xx

  159. I know a photographer Brooklyn D Photography, she is amazing and very humble about her work and business. She is so kind, genuine, passionate and talented, she goes into everyday with the goal of giving people photos to cherish and she does exactly that. She is a Nikon user and she inspires me daily! She is not the type to comment and say so herself so as a friend and long time client I’d like for you to know she is right up there with the female Nikon users showing how incredible women are.

  160. Did you only choose Nikon wedding photographers? Where’s the love for the other genres?

    • Hey Marian, This post was directed at Nikon, which is why we only highlighted women who use Nikon. Thanks!

  161. Hi! I shoot Nikon D750 🙂
    Amazing list with great women-photographers!

  162. Well.. in my opinion, a VSCO filter applied on a picture doesn`t make you a GREAT photographer. 🙂 I`m not saying they are not good, I`m not saying the pictures are not great, but I didn`t saw a single female photographer go into the wild, by her own, and test a camera in different conditions (Rain, Snow, Cold, Hot, Windy…etc.).

    And because most of the examples given are photographers that use NATURAL light, they are not making any good to Nikon flashes, and other accessories. So… it`s a pure marketing thing, not a sexist thing… in my opinion.
    Cheers

    • Nikon, is that you???

      • No miss… not Nikon. Actually, I don`t use Nikon anymore. This is just a personal thought and how marketing works. 🙂 They have a lot of accessories, a natural light photographer is not selling them. 😉 As I said, I am not saying those pictures are not good, but they are not pixel peepers… they are not retouching like crazy, they are using natural light. What can they say about a DR when they are not doing HDR-like images? They can say that nikon can go at high iso, and? Tell me another thing that they could tell, in wedding industry… ah, focus… the d7100 can focus for a wedding pretty well…. never mind. 🙂 It`s just a personal thought… as I say. I would do the same for my business if I were in this position.

  163. Yes! I use D610 & D750! Way to go Junebug.

  164. I have a Nikon D610 and D810. I use both in my Landscape photography and for portraits. I was looking to add the 850. I also pretty much buy everything Nikon especially my lenses. Next month I was pretty much condsidering a very large lense purchase to complete my arsenal of tools. My mentor told me for everything to work perfectly as I like, “Everything should be Nikon”.

    Very very disappointed with this industry with the lack of representation for females but also for African Americans as well. If we expect the world to change, then its corporations need to change as well.

    • YES! We couldn’t agree with this more!

  165. WELL SAID. Nikon film and digital user here too. Superb list of very talented women photographers! I’m so disappointed with Nikon right now. 🙁

  166. Charmi Pena, Susan Stripling, Anna Nguyen, Erum Rizvi, Kristi Odom, Erika Mann, Nessa K

    There are really a TON

  167. What a great list of talented ladies. I am also a long time shooter of Nikon, and currently use Nikon D 750’s.

  168. Hi!

    Thank you for posting this! I use a Nikon d750 and have only used Nikon for 7 years. This is crazy to hear not one woman was on their list. Thank you for posting all these amazing woman’s work. Keep taking ground, keep making art.

Star crossed Nikon users?!) we have discussed jumping ship lately but there is so much we still love about them. Nikon d750s are too good!

    xo

  193. Nikon forever! WOOT WOOT!

  205. Nikon user over here shooting with d810 and d750. Thanks a ton for compiling this list and not being complacent. You ladies rock!

  208. <3 We are here to stay Nikon.

  209. Nikon user here too! Great list guys! xo

  210. Female Nikon user here too! D800/Nikon primes. But did recently have a play with the D850 and oh my 😍

  211. My first proper digital camera was a nikon crop frame entry level I leant on this camera my love of photography. I purchased a full frame nikon d610 this yea and loved it within a few months i upgraded again to a nikon d750 which i find is far superior in low light to the d610. I now use both cameras with different lenses on

  212. I am a faithful Nikon user from the very beginning of my career

  213. One of the top Irish fashion photographers Anita Sadowska http://anitasadowska.com/,

    I use canon myself 😀

  214. Disappointing indeed. Nikon User since 2015, based in India. NPS member.

  215. Yo, another Nikon lady over here! I’m from sunny old England and I’ve been using your equipment since 2013 – we are real, we are here and we would make some darn good ambassadors!

  216. I’m over in England, I shoot under Oxyte – and I’ve been a Nikon shooter for as long as I’ve been shooting DSLr. It’s how I learnt.
    I started with a D200 and now I’m on the D600. It’s my baby. One day I hope to be on the D850!
    I undertake many genres, with my favourite being models and expressions. Representation is important. Let’s look forward to change.

  217. I have always loved the Junebug wedding website. It highlights gorgeous photos that are enjoyable to view. I truly appreciate it even more, for doing something positive, by bringing to light wonderful women photographers who were completely overlooked by Nikon. This was an enlightening article. I am an amateur woman photographer, using a D5000 capturing some wonderful equestrian events and senior portraits of family and friends.

  218. I am one of the rare people in my area who shoots Nikon and it’s a constant dialogue here that Canon is better. One of my friends even switched! But I’ve stayed true to Nikon because I really love my D750. I have so many times advocated for Nikon so this is rather disappointing.

  219. I have shot Nikon for 13 years. I shoot both D750’s after having the D4s. I’ve talked with Nikon reps and worked with them. I’ve been to similar type events for other manufacturers like Nikon hosted for the Middle East (where this photo came from) and I was still one of the only women. There are ambassadors and then there are the testers. Out of Nikon’s ambassadors, 7 are women and the other 17 are men. The way that these tests work are different. When a new product comes out, the people who are picked to come out aren’t represented by Nikon. They are usually given a free trip to use and review the camera. They are people from blogs etc who write about their products so they can give them a review to be seen by an audience. Unfortunately this isn’t as much of a Nikon problem as it is a photography world problem. This group of photographers is from Nikon MEA. Which is Middle East and Africa. The representation of women photographers in that area is few and far between. Yes, Nikon needed to do a better job at trying to find them, but sadly, they are not prominent due to an overly male populated industry that doesn’t help women in general.

  220. I’m a female Nikon photographer!

  221. I’m not with Nikon, but my friend Mairéad McDaid is – remaininlightphotography.com
    And Laura Babb babbphoto.com
    And Christine Meintjes christinemeintjes.com (AN AMBASSADOR!)
    Sussie Mellsted sussiemellstedt.com
    and that’s just off the top of my head.

  222. Ten years of Nikon this year!

    D50 to D300 to D700 to D3s and D750.

  223. I’ve been a Nikon user since about 2005, when I switched from film to digital. Now I use 2x D750s and lots of Nikon primes, which followed on from my D800s and my D700s and have seen me through 6 years of full time wedding photography.

  224. Nikon shooter since 2008. I’ve always been one to preach Nikon and how amazing of a brand it is.

  225. Been shooting with Nikon since I started photography at 15! I use two d750s and all sorts of Nikkor lenses for all of my personal work and weddings. Thank you for doing this, Junebug!
