Collaborating with Mother Nature— capturing seascapes with a wild ocean photographer!

#CreateYourLight returns to the west coast of Ireland, to join wild ocean photographer George Karbus on a nature shoot.
From the majestic Cliffs of Moher to the fields and beaches, George reveals how he works with the ultimate creator—Mother Nature.

Armed with the Z 7II and his favourite lenses—the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S and AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED—George is able to capture extraordinarily evocative images of the County Clare coastline. The Z 7II’s twin EXPEED processors and superb focusing effortlessly keep up with George’s demands. Leaving him free to concentrate on framing, and keeping him flexible enough to respond to sudden changes in weather and light.

Join George in his element, and you’ll learn how to plan for the best light, get the most from your environment, and capitalise on those all-important unexpected moments of beauty.

Share your best nature shots with us by using the hashtag #CreateYourLight. The most striking images could be selected for our Nikon favourites gallery.
