Early in his career, Nikon named Colón a "Legend Behind the Lens" and included his bio and work in its permanent archive. Mike is the youngest photographer to ever receive such recognition from Nikon. Shortly after, Nikon ran an ad campaign featuring Colón as the "veteran digital shooter" highlighting his early adoption of their pro DSLR wifi technology.
