I once worked at a magazine where the mantra was: ‘If there’s no picture, it’s not a story.’ You can tell people something amazing happened, but without a picture there’s no proof. There are few things in life sweeter for a photographer than knowing you’ve managed to get ‘the shot’: the one that really captures something special, something magical, something dramatic. A shot that truly tells a story. Whether it’s freezing time in a still image or recording an amazing moment on video, when it happens all the talent, the experience – and sometimes a little bit of luck – come into play.

The new Nikon Z 9 has been specifically designed for those moments, to allow the photographer to go beyond what was previously possible, to unleash their creativity and to tell the world’s stories. Life doesn’t have a script or stage direction. Wild animals don’t turn and face the photographer for their portraits. Sports professionals don’t worry how their performance will look on camera. News events, both joyful and tragic, happen whether the photographer is there or not.

In this issue, we’re celebrating the Nikon Z 9 with some of the world’s great photographers, and every image inside has been taken with the new camera. A camera that means fewer of those amazing moments will ever be missed. Enjoy.
