Gear Collection Of The Year

John S. Payne‘s is a photographer and Nikon collector. This is unbelievably, just a third of his collection.

John is based in North Carolina and has been shooting with Nikon since 1975. Since he started collecting in the early 1990’s, he has accumulated a whopping 150 Nikon cameras and 155 lenses. His collection is worth a staggering £120,000.

Here is a photo of his collection at this time last year. He has accumulated £20,000 more since then.

John stores his collect is his 1929 vintage movie theater which he converted into his personal photo studio, which also doubles as his little private camera museum.

We look forward to seeing what it looks like next year!
