Speaking about the partnership Oren Ziv, Director Apple Creative Markets Europe said: "At Apple we’re constantly thrilled and amazed by what customers do with our products and nowhere more so than in the field of creative imaging. But we realise that even with a immensely powerful professional tool like the Mac great images begin in the hands of a skilled imaging professional. And in pro photography those guys use Nikon. And they do this for the same reason that many of them already have come to the Macintosh. Because it’s not just a great system, it’s absolutely the right system. That’s why we’ll be sharing the stage with Nikon. It’s the right thing to do."

Robert Cristina, Professional Product Manager, Nikon Europe added; "Nikon welcome this initiative by Apple. Nikon lead the way when it comes to Total Image Quality. However quality is nothing without speed. Using a Mac with your Firewire enabled Nikon Camera or film Scanner maximises your workflow when both quality and time matter. Helping photographic and creative Imaging Professionals and enthusiasts to discover this for themselves is why we are taking part. Trained Nikon staff will be on hand at every venue offering hands on advice and support with the very latest Nikon Imaging Products. Nikon and Mac deliver an excellent combination of hardware and software tools to develop your digital photography business for the future. These seminars will show you how."
