Lindsay Silverman was General Manager of Nikon House where he was responsible for managing and training the staff, hosting gallery shows and working collaboratively with various PR and advertising agencies from 1986 – 1993.

Lindsay retired from Nikon in February of 2019 after 34 years to further his commitment to promoting photography.

In his capacity as a professional photographer, Lindsay was a contributing editor and photographer for Nikon World magazine for more than sixteen years with his column: Hands On.
