Editor's Letter


This issue of Nikon Pro was 99 per cent completed when the coronavirus pandemic led to a delay in production. What would have been the Spring issue is now the Spring/Summer issue, and nearly all of the stories in it were written before the world changed. We hope that you, your friends and your families have not experienced the worst that Covid-19 can bring.

Most pro photographers were forced to stop working when the pandemic struck. Many, especially freelance, had some kind of plan in place for when work dried up. Coping with this unprecedented period of little or no work is hard, even for the most well-prepared. We hope, too, that you are dealing with any challenges that have arisen in this regard.

It’s also true that many photographers are using time away from their usual work to sharpen skills or learn new ones, to tackle long-term sidelined tasks, to reassess their archives or even turn the new working conditions to their advantage. We salute any and all of you who have found positives.

Perhaps this issue of Nikon Pro will plant the seed of an idea for a future project or adding a new string to your bow, or simply something to note down and revisit when lockdowns and restrictions are lifted. We hope you enjoy the issue, and that you stay safe and well.
