Meet Anthony and Michelle
When Nikon cameras get a more human touch to them, :)
Okay, I want you to be honest with me for a second and answer this question:
Have you ever named an inanimate object?
Car? Motorcycle? Something weirder than that?
I love my Nikon cameras very much, and if you've ever seen me handle them before, during and after a session, you would know what I mean.
Throughout my life, I've purchased 6 Nikon cameras and 1 video camera, and each of them are significant to me for one reason or another.
Since becoming a professional photographer, I've purchased two, flagship Nikon cameras, and they have held down the fort for the past 6 years.
...and since they mean the world to me, yes, I named them!
I’d like to introduce you to Michelle (Nikon D4 on the left) and Anthony (Nikon D5 on the right). They're siblings and BFF's at the same time, :)
I am unbelievably grateful and fortunate to create a business around my art while simultaneously helping clients achieve their goals with such amazing, high-end equipment.
Regardless of bad lighting, bad location, or whatever crappy condition that exists, Michelle and Anthony have come through for me on every occasion, because technical concerns are not a concern with these badass, Nikon cameras, so the vision that my clients have for their image content always comes to life.
Needless to say, they make me very happy, :)
Although I’ve gotten plenty of shit from friends and clients alike for naming them and talking about them as if they were children, I respond to everyone who busts my chops like this:
"When you pay as much for those cameras as I did, you can call them whatever the hell you want!”
What aspect(s) of your business for which are you grateful? A piece of equipment? Something else? someone else?
