New instructor takes lead for Puerto Rico photo adventure

Nikonians-Academy-Update.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen has announced the addition of Efraín M. Padró to the faculty. Padró is the author of The Photographer’s Guide to New Mexico and regularly teaches photography classes and workshops in the U.S. and abroad through many organizations.
Hagen’s announcement includes details on the first workshop to be led by the new Nikonians Academy instructor.

Here is Mikes report:
EfrainMPadro_200.jpgEfrain is a native of Puerto Rico and knows the region extremely well. His first workshop for the Nikonians Academy will be a photo adventure to Puerto Rico, February 16-20, 2013.

The adventure will feature visits to Old San Juan, El Yunque Rain Forest, the Fajardo Lighthouse and more.

Efraín has photographed such diverse locations as Perú, Patagonia, Morocco, the Netherlands, Mexico, and the Southwest, and was the lead photographer for Frommer’s Puerto Rico Day by Day travel guide.

His work has appeared in Outdoor Photographer, Geographic Expeditions catalogs, Frommer's Budget Travel, Photo Life (Canada), Bienvenidos Magazine (Puerto Rico), New Mexico Magazine, Texas Journey, Colorado State Vacation Guide, Santa Fean Magazine, as well as calendars, web sites, and other publications

Simon combines technical and creative skills
Pass_284.jpgSteve Simon's newest workshop is a blend of his world famous Passionate Photographer workshop and our best-selling Master your Gear workshops.

He's titled this workshop The Passionate Nikon Photographer and will taking it to Boston, Massachusetts on October 6, 2012. The two-day workshop is limited to 11 participants who own any of the following Nikon bodies: D7000, D700, D800, D300/D300s, D3, D3s, D3x or D4.

His course description describes the workshop as a comprehensive mastery of the technical aspects unique to Nikon cameras. Once those technical aspects are mastered, they fade to the background, no longer getting in the way of the images you know you can make.

Steve’s next stop takes him to Vancouver, British Columbia next month with five days of our workshops (August 22-26):
Master the Nikon D7000/D90/D80
Master the D300/D300s In Depth
The Passionate Photographer
Master the Nikon D800/D4 In Depth
Master the Nikon D800/D4 Advanced

Two months ahead….
September is right around the corner and we have workshops spanning the USA from Monument Valley to Colorado Springs HDR photography to Salt Lake City D800/D4 In Depth to Yellowstone Wildlife photography.

Looking ahead to 2013
