Academy workshop feedback helps add to calendar

hagen_lion-thu.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen reports the success of recent workshops has opened the door for calendar adjustments.

Here is Mike's report:
We keep adding workshops around the USA because the demand is high and people are loving our teaching style. The last few weeks have been filled with our workshops all around the USA and feedback from attendees has been excellent. Here are a few of comments from attendees of last week's workshops in New Jersey:

Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed and learned at your Lightroom 4 workshop in New Jersey last weekend. The day was extremely well planned, organized and executed - a first-rate program in every respect! I look forward to taking the second Lightroom 4 workshop when it is scheduled.
Best regards,

Thanks for the great class!! I learned a lot. Too often at photo workshops the presenter is a great photographer who is a poor presenter and the workshop falls flat. You both a great presenter and a great photographer. Please keep up the good work!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for such a wonderful workshop. You are a gifted instructor. The pace and the detail of the information was perfect and I had a really great time.

Lightroom_250.jpgThe course you gave was great. You gave a clear, well organized, and interesting presentation. I did not want to leave the room during the course so as not to miss one bit of information. I love photography and have taken some courses in the past but because photography for me is a hobby I can't devote the time and practice I would like to make the experience worthwhile. Usually I take a course and within one week I've forgotten most things. They seemed clear at the time but one to two weeks later the info is gone. Sometimes I will go for months without doing any photography so it is hard to take a learning experience and turn it into a reality. I have about 20,000 photos in iPhoto but I am beginning to lose control of the program. The program is slow and my file system while theoretically organized is becoming overwhelmed. As a result of the day spent with you I am beginning to successfully migrate from iPhoto to LR4.
I learned a lot and am now able to find my way around.
Thank you for a great day!!
Best regards,

In response, we've added more workshops to the schedule for Seattle and San Diego. Also, since we're completely sold out for our New York D600/D7100/D7000 workshop on May 6th, we've added another session on May 7th.

hagen_lion-250.jpgWe just posted our 2014 Africa Photo Safari adventure, so feel free to sign up with you and your spouse for one of the greatest photo adventures you'll ever take.

Don't forget about our upcoming portrait workshops with Greg Stangl in Phoenix (May 13) and Dallas (June 3). Both workshops still have seats available.

Rick Hulbert's Urban and Street Photography workshop in Chicago is sold out and he has just a few remaining seats in his Toronto workshops later this May.

Finally, we have just a few seats available for this week's classes in Vancouver, BC and Las Vegas, NV.
