Nikonians Academy Spotlight on Maine, USA

LesPicker_NA-thu.jpgFor the second year in a row, the Nikonians Academy is pleased to offer a 4-day workshop in Acadia National Park led by award-winning photographer and Academy faculty member Les Picker (

Acadia_250.jpgMaine’s iconic Acadia National Park always ranks in the Top Ten list of the most visited, and for good reason.

It is a photographer’s dream location with rugged ocean cliffs that glow golden during the magic hours. It features photogenic lighthouses, mountain peaks, evergreen forests, bubbling streams and vibrant fishing communities.

Les lived near Acadia for ten years and did his graduate ecology research there, so few people know the park as well as he does.
Join Les for a once-in-a-lifetime photo experience (starting October 10th). For more information, check the course description.

Here is a testimonial from one of last year's Acadia National Park workshop participants:
Lewis Rothman (lewisrothman).

Acadia_145.jpg"I recently returned from a Nikonians workshop led by Les Picker at Acadia National Park. In a word, it was outstanding. Les is an excellent teacher, photographer and leader. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Park and scouted out several beautiful photo venues in advance.
He offered solid and comprehensive shooting tips geared to our individual needs and provided insightful feedback after each shoot.
Perhaps most important he provided additional opportunity to review and improve our images after we returned home from the workshop. He was genuinely interested in our progress and it didn't end with the workshop. I recommend the workshop without reservation and look forward to attending another one with him."

--- Lewis Rothman, M.D., New York City

In other Nikonians Academy News, our Toronto, Ontario, and New Orleans, Louisiana workshops are coming up quickly during the first half of July.

Timelapse_250.jpgAlso, our Timelapse Photography Workshop with Michael Mariant in San Francisco (starting July 13) is sure to be a hit with those who desire to learn the ins and outs of high-quality timelapse photography.

The schedule for this three-day session is a different from typical technical workshops in that much of the instruction takes place in the field.
This helps you fully "read" the scene in order to learn how to calculate the correct sequence methods.
