Nikonians.org, with close to 100,000 members from nearly 150 countries, has partnered with Santa Barbara-based
photography publisher Rocky Nook in joint publishing venture.
In a joint statement, Nikonians.org and Rocky Nook announced today they have joined forces. The international
community of Nikon enthusiasts partnered with the Santa Barbara-based photography publisher to launch a new
program of books for photographers geared toward both professionals and advanced amateurs.
The project, under the Nikonians Press banner, will mostly cover Nikon equipment and books in the series will go
well beyond the scope of technical manuals. Written by experienced photographers, they will help photographers
become better at producing high quality images more efficiently, and to achieve consistent results.
Written in an easy friendly style, the books from Nikonians Press will cut through the technical jargon to help
readers understand not only their camera, but also the wealth of photographic advantages it can deliver.
Books from Nikonians Press will strive to convey what
Nikonians.org is about: a friendly, reliable, informative, and passionate Nikon users community. The
first books in the series, currently in production and scheduled for publication early next year, will
cover the newest Nikon systems.

Founded and owned by Bo Stahlbrandt from Sweden and J. Ramón Palacios from Mexico. The Nikonians mission is to
