Opinion: You're never too old to become a pro photographer

Age is just a number

Every month a lucky N-Photo: The Nikon Magazine reader gets to spend the day shooting alongside a pro Nikon photographer. The pro in our current June issue is maternity photographer, Tianna J-Williams, who first picked up a camera when her daughter was born. She quickly worked up the confidence to quit a successful medical career and start a photography business. Five years later and the studio is thriving, she’s won numerous awards and is a Nikon Z creator.

Tianna is still a young woman, but with an extremely busy career and a baby girl at home, she had every opportunity to put obstacles in the way and avoid following her passion. It was equally inspiring to see her student for the day, Marie’s, enthusiasm who, following a milestone birthday, had decided to buy her first camera and is determined to give photography her all.
