Experience is key ingredient in workshop success
Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen provides a look behind the scenes at members of the instructor team responsible for some of the most popular workshops of the year:
At the Academy, we take our travel and our photography seriously. We run a variety of workshops to different corners of the globe and all of them are exceptionally well prepared with meticulous attention to details.
You can count on the fact that our top notch instructors have taken into careful account the logistics, safety, transportation, and photographic opportunities for every traveler involved.
We encourage you to make 2013 the year to finally go on that big photo adventure you've been waiting for.
You will benefit from our commitment to you: run the best trips by the best instructors in the best areas in order to help you capture the best images.
