The company also hopes that the work they create will inspire and educate their social media followings. Clearly, Nikon’s long-term goal is to showcase their cameras and lenses with great content to encourage sales. However, it’s always good to see artists being supported and given access to a larger platform to show off their work. We look forward to following the careers of the inaugural beneficiaries of the Creators Official Partners program.
