Las Vegas, WPPI Booth #421 – Attendees of the 2019 Wedding and Portrait Photography Conference and Expo (WPPI) will find an unparalleled combination of innovation, inspiration and education when they visit the Nikon Booth this year. Whether testing out the incredible capabilities of Nikon’s latest gear or learning new techniques and business insights from pro photographers and Nikon Ambassadors, the booth will offer something for all types of photographers.

Nikon’s cutting-edge imaging products will be on display at the booth, including the full-frame mirrorless Z 7 and Z 6 cameras and the company’s latest and greatest DSLRs, including the award-winning Nikon D850. Attendees can also get their hands on a vast array of powerful NIKKOR lenses, including the new NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S and NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S lenses, as well as legendary F-Mount lenses like the portrait powerhouse AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED. Additionally, Nikon Professional Services (NPS) members will have access to the exclusive NPS lounge, which is now located in the Nikon booth, where they can recharge and interact with other professionals as well as Nikon Ambassadors.
