Nikonians Academy welcomes new instructor, expands workshop schedule

Nikonians-Academy-News-Bog.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen has announced an expansion to the staff (and that – as we all know from past experience) means new workshops and photo opportunities are in the works.

Here is Mike's announcement::
It has been a big week here at the Nikonians Academy as we are rolling out new workshops, new locations and a brand new instructor.

Lester_Picker_200.jpg
I'd like to formally welcome our newest instructor, Les Picker.

His first workshop for us is a 7-day adventure to the Yukon for a photo trip you won't ever forget. Les is a professional photographer from the East Coast of the USA and specializes in nature/adventure photography. His photo workshop to the Yukon is truly going to be amazing. Like all of us at the Nikonians Academy, Les shares our passion for beautiful photography and well-designed trips.

On this trip you'll be photographing grizzly bear, amazing mountain scenery, the Northern Lights and Gold Rush ghost towns. Les has managed to pack in an incredible journey into seven days. You're going to love it.

Michael Mariant's travel workshops are filling quickly and we have just a few seats remaining for his Big Sur, CA trip on 4/14/11. This photo adventure will travel the legendary US Pacific Coast Highway in search of dramatic vistas, surging ocean wave, giant waterfalls and gorgeous sunsets.

Michael says, “There is still space available on this year’s Big Sur workshop April 14-17. Big Sur has always had more locations than could fit into the workshop. And with Mother Nature wrecking havoc on the roads at the northern end of Big Sur, the itinerary has been changed — for this year only — adding new locations, creating an exclusive one-time-only workshop. Visit the Nikonians Academy workshop forum thread for the Big Sur workshop for more information!”
Michael has posted an enhanced description here.

Also, Michael has added a Virtual Video Tour description for his Giant Redwoods of Northern California workshop. For the video, head over to our forums.

Winston Hall has added a brand new schedule for Summer and Fall that will bring our most popular workshops to Moab, Seattle, Dallas, Austin, Indianapolis, Page, Albuquerque, Denver, Chicago, Raleigh and Vegas. You don't have much more time to sign up for his workshops in Colorado Springs, CO April 6th - April 9th. In fact, his D700/D3/D3s/D3x workshop has only 3 seats remaining.

I will be in Los Angeles, CA April 14-18 running Nikonians Academy workshops at Samys Camera.
Day one is sold out, but we still have seats available for D300/D300s Advanced, D700/D3/D3s/D3x In Depth and iTTL Wireless Flash.

Steve Simon is also rolling out new workshops all around the USA and Canada as well. His most recent workshop is set for New York, NY from June 16th - 19th and he also has a special series scheduled for Montreal, Quebec April 20 - 23. Sign up for these workshops here.

For those of you aspire to photograph wildlife in a North American iconic landscape, check out Jim Stamates' 4-day spring wildlife photography trip to Grand Teton National Park. Spring is the best time of year to photograph baby animals, so we'll be looking for baby elk, owls, bear, wolf and everything in between.
