Nikonians Academy enters fall with gusto

Nikonians-Academy-News-Bog.jpgMike Hagen, Director of the Nikonians Academy, has been fine-tuning the schedule for the coming months and he takes time to fill us in on the most activities and plans for the Academy workshop leaders:

September is coming to a close and the Nikonians Academy staff had a great month of travels with workshops from New York to Arizona. One of our fun workshops was to Monument Valley and Page, Arizona where our participants photographed beautiful slot canyons and stunning landscapes. October is right around the corner and we have a number of exciting outdoor photography adventures in store.

Balloon_250.jpgOne of them will be to the visually stunning Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta from October 3rd - 7th.

The other is our Wildlife Adventure in Grand Teton NP, 10/3 - 10/6. Both of these trips are sold out, but we are always adding more (see below).

Be sure to watch our galleries for images from the participants!

Steve Simon has been running his fantastic Passionate Photographer workshops for us all around the USA and Canada.

Pass_284.jpgLast week he had a wonderful interview with TWiT Photo to discuss his new book, The Passionate Photographer.

Check out this link to get to know Steve better.

Steve is running his next series of workshops in Philadelphia, PA from 10/13 - 10/16.

After Philly, Steve heads to Washington, DC from 10/20 - 10/23.

David Tejada's famous Lighting-location_275.jpg Professional Lighting on Location workshops are slated to begin in Los Angeles, CA on 10/15 and San Francisco, CA on 10/22.

These two-day workshops teach everything you need to know for creating amazing flash photos at just about any location.

Whether your need is to capture a professional portrait in the field or photograph your kid's birthday party, this workshop will demonstrate the most current methods for creating beautiful images.

Bison_145.jpgFor you wildlife photographers, we've just added four brand new 2012 workshops to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

These trips are scheduled for Spring and Fall to coincide with wildlife babies and the Fall rut.

Jim Stamates has scheduled the Grand Teton Wildlife Adventure back to back with the Yellowstone Wildlife Adventure so participants can experience both parks.

In fact, if you sign up for both the back-to-back trips, then we will refund $100 as an overall discount. Check 'em out here and here.

Jim has also has put together an amazing wildlife photography trip called whales_250.jpgAlaska - Whales, Bears, and Ice Fields.

The trip is based out of Juneau and includes three boat cruises, a trip to photograph bears, whale watching excursions, a sightseeing flight over ice fields and much more.

This promises to be an incredible journey.

D3x_225.jpgWinston Hall is finishing up his workshops in Indianapolis, IN this weekend and is next headed to Denver, CO from 10/27-10/30.

He'll be leading workshops in Master the Nikon D700/D3/D3s/D3x, Master Nikon D7000/D90/D80, Master Nikon iTTL CLS Wireless Flash and Master Nikon Capture NX2.

Michael Mariant's November 17-20 Death Valley workshop is one of our most popular annual trips. Death Valley is widely regarded as one of the best locations in the USA for stunning landscape photography. Capture the vibrancy of this austere desert during shooting sessions and specialized instruction in landscape photography. Michael is a master trip leader and has been photographing Death Valley for years.

Africa-Hagen.jpgWe continue to increase our international travel destinations with trips to Africa and the Galapagos.

Our November 2011 Tanzania trip is sold out, but we are headed back in November 2012.

Also, our Galapagos photo adventure in September 2012 is very close to selling out with just a few seats remaining.

Acadia_145.jpgIf you've always wanted to photograph Acadia NP, then why don't you come along with us? Our newest instructor Les Picker is leading a 4-day photo adventure to Acadia NP from 10/18 - 10/22, 2012. Yes, this is a year away, but it is never too early to begin planning for next year.
