Nikon UK Announces New Ambassadors

Nikon UK today announces the appointment of two new photographers to its Ambassador line-up, Richard Peters and Helen Sloan.

Richard Peters is an award winning wildlife photographer with a wealth of experience in his field. Richard recently completed and published an e-book documenting his back garden safari project, an inspiring series of wildlife imagery captured in his back garden.

Helen Sloan is a film and TV stills photographer who most notably works on the popular HBO series Game of Thrones, capturing character stills from the set and plenty of behind the scenes action.

The Nikon Ambassador initiative was introduced in 2013 to celebrate class-leading photographers working in specific fields of photography, whilst inspiring people to pick up their camera and reach their creative potential. The Ambassadors work with Nikon on a range of activities, from seminars at key events to social media and PR campaigns.

Richard and Helen join current Nikon Ambassadors to complete this year’s line-up: David Yarrow – fine art wildlife photographer known for capturing the beauty of the planet’s remote landscapes and endangered animals, Jeremy Walker - award-winning professional photographer specialising in landscape and location photography and Leon Neal - news photographer with a wealth of experience and a staff photographer for AFP News.

Nikon would like to thank photographers Bob Martin and Kate Hopewell-Smith for their excellent work and support over the past two years as we continue to work with them as part of Nikon’s prestigious Ambassador Alumni.

Jeremy Gilbert, Group Marketing Manager, at Nikon UK says: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Peters and Helen Sloan to our Ambassador scheme. Since the launch of the Ambassador scheme in 2013 we have seen some amazing talent in our line-up and it continues to go from strength to strength. Through the ambassadors we are able to engage with our customers but most importantly, encourage enthusiasts to take a step up with their photography.”

He adds: “The scheme has allowed us to formally acknowledge some of the country’s leading photographers in their fields and collaborate with them creatively to inspire and engage budding photographers.”
