Introducing the movement - Z8

A Nikon limited series follows nine creators as they embark on a trip around the west coast of Spain with the new Nikon Z 8

It’s time to step it up a notch. Introducing The Movement, a deep dive into the purpose of image-making with the new Nikon Z 8. Prepare to be amazed by the capabilities of Nikon’s newest full-frame mirrorless camera. The Z 8 is engineered to provide the perfect combination of agility and power, with outstanding technology built in, whatever — and however — you shoot. But don’t just take our word for it.

 

In an exclusive new video series, we took nine leading creators across all aspects of image-making. Getting hands-on with the Nikon Z 8, they got deep into their process, their motivation, their creativity and, of course, their thoughts on working with the new Z 8.

 

During a week-long trip in Spain each creator took on their own project, while also watching each other, discussing the purpose of image-making in the modern world and sharing insights into technique across a wide variety of disciplines.

Aurelie Gonin and Frøydis Geithus

 

Each episode follows one creator’s journey. First up to the stage is mountain sports videographer Aurelie Gonin and wedding and fine art portraiture photographer Frøydis Geithus. What do they both have in common? A love for nature.

 

Renowned for her Nordic-noir style images, Frøydis’ ‘Love is Love’ shoot focuses on the power of nature to shape a love story. Harnessed in, Aurelie (quite literally) takes the Z 8 to the edge by shooting rock climbing. Absolutely breath-taking.

 

Mikko Lagerstedt

Next, Mikko Lagerstedt takes centre stage. From Finland, Mikko loves shooting minimalist landscape photography and astrophotography. His ultimate goal is to capture emotion through the landscape and make the viewer experience the sublime.

 

Mous Lamrabat  

Be inspired by Moroccan-born Belgian photographer Mous Lamrabat’s high fashion extravaganza. Passionate about the role that settings play in influencing narratives, Mous takes us along with him on his creative journey and reveals how he crafts unique details and empowers his subject.

 

Olivier Wong, aka Wonguy

Famous on social media for his portrait videos, Wonguy steps up his creativity with the Z 8 by challenging himself to shoot something he’s never attempted before (you’ll have to watch to find out). Expect technical detail and breath-taking images.

 

Esther Horvath

Armed with the new Z 8, Arctic photographer Esther Horvath is ready to shake up the status quo. Born in Hungary, Esther has always been greatly influenced by the landscapes surrounding her, and through her Arctic and portrait photography she aims to fight climate change and empower individuals at the battlefront of science. 

 

Keziah Quarcoo and Cara Brown
With their fresh new take to shooting live performance music, Director and DOP team Keziah Quarcoo and Cara Brown, from Mahogany, will have your feet tapping in no time. They dive into the best angles that spark a narrative and show how easy it is to switch between filming video and shooting stills with the Z 8.
 
Pep Bonet
Enter award-winning filmmaker Pep Bonet. A master of behind-the-scenes action, Pep starts our limited series by introducing the creators who were lucky enough to get their hands on the Z 8. Pep reveals their individual creative journeys and the reality of their inner creative processes, from excitement to relief and everything in between and then finishes The Movement off with a bang with his approach to videography
