Weekly News From the Nikonians Academy

Academy schedule for 2008 includes new locations and workshop topics
From the mobile desk of Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen:
This will be our our biggest year ever and we are continuing our tradition of excellent workshops in a small class environment. We are covering more cities and more dates than ever before.

At this point we have 28 cities listed across North America, including Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver BC in January. Additionally, we have a number of travel workshops that we'll be running in locations like Moab, Banff, Olympic NP and many more. These travel workshops will all be posted over the next two weeks. Go to to see what all the fuss is about! Sign up quickly before the limited number of seats sell out.

We have an entirely new workshop on the Nikonians Academy schedule called "Streamlined Digital Workflow and Inkjet Printing". HP-B9810.jpgThis is a one day hands-on workshop where we'll be providing large format HP Photosmart Pro B9180 Printers for the class participants to use. We'll cover digital workflow, software, calibration and printing with a goal to help you better understand the process of digital workflow and inkjet printing.
This is a hands-on workshop where you'll have the opportunity to work side-by-side with our professional photographer instructor in a small class. We'll spend the last portion of the day covering printing issues and everyone in class will make their own 13" x 19" print to bring home. See more details at

We have also created a four-day workflow, software and printing workshop called "Advanced Digital Imaging Workflow" that will be held in two major cities in '08 (San Francisco Bay Area and Dallas). These four-day workshops will have a complete digital darkroom setup with printers, computers and calibration equipment. We'll have thorough tutorials on Photoshop methods, Nikon Capture NX, HDR imaging, RAW workflow, large format ink jet printing and much, much more. These two events will provide an unbelievable amount of information over the course of four days. If you are serious about learning printing, workflow, RAW processing, then this is the workshop for you.

Our second African Safari to Tanzania is posted and ready for you to sign up. It will be held immediately after the first Safari. It will begin on 11/24/08 and end on 12/7/08 - that's two weeks of photography in some of Africa's most amazing locations! Price will be $6,500 and this will include all transportation, food and lodging while in Africa. The safari price does not include airfare to get to Africa. If you are considering signing up for this trip, please move quickly; the last one sold out in 3.5 days! You can see more details on our website. Also, if you have specific questions, feel free to contact our Academy Director, Mike Hagen, at
