Here at Nikonians we are all working together to achieve mastery in our photography. We know that only through our continuous dedication, staying strongly focused on learning, we will achieve our goal of mastering the art of photography.

We know that learning is easier and more fun together, letting us inspire each other and share our joy, and sometimes pain.

With your support, we can improve the learning experience further. For the period of summer 2017 through spring 2018, we are improving the way we can share our photographs and how we manage them in the community. Any amount is helpful. Our sincere thanks to our latest supporters:

Donna Knodle, December 5 ($100.00), Bug, December 2, Pakku, December 1 ($10.00), Carol Freshley, November 29 ($50.00), William Marsh, November 27 ($50.00)
