Academy to add Lightroom 4 and Profoto support

Nikonians-Academy-Update.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen revealed plans (last week) to add the newest Nikon Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras to the workshop schedule. Mike's latest update adds Lightroom 4 and Profoto lighting products to the slate.

Mike tells us:
We are always developing new workshops at the Nikonians Academy while working hard to stay in front of the digital technology curve. Over the next few weeks, we'll be unveiling new workshops for the Nikon D800/D800E and the Nikon D4 camera systems. The Academy is already preparing new course content for these cameras scheduled to go live in April.

We have also begun our transition to Lightroom 4 training. adobe-vid_175.jpgCurrently, our workshop series on Lightroom 3 is extremely popular and our Lightroom 4 workshops will begin as soon as Adobe releases the final public version. You can get a peek at the latest version in a series of videos from Adobe featuring Lightroom 4 beta.

Profoto_275.jpgWe've also just signed a great partnership with Profoto to supply lighting equipment for a new studio lighting series that we'll run all around the USA.
This workshop will incorporate the use of Profoto's high-end D1 Air strobes and ProTungsten Air mono-lights.
We are excited to bring you these new workshops and we know they will be a valuable learning resource for you.

Our ambitious Master Your Gear workshop schedule for March and April begins next week with classes all around North America.
There are only a few seats remaining for my workshops next week in Los Angeles, so don't delay in signing up. Winston Hall is in Texas running workshops in Dallas (March 8-11) and Austin (March 15-18) while Steve Simon is in Canada, running workshops in Toronto (March 15-18) and Montreal (March 22-25). April brings Winston Hall to Denver, Colorado (April 4-7).

If you've ever wanted to explore the outdoor world with your camera, then come along with one of our Nikonians instructors to wild places around the world. Our nature and destination workshops are some of the best in the business. We always keep a low teacher-to-student ratio so we are able to maximize your experience.
