Popular workshops and adventure trips going fast
Nikonians Academy instructors are noticing a trend developing for some of the high profile workshops and adventure trips scheduled this year. Academy Director Mike Hagen, currently on the road in California, had time to dash of a fast message while traveling:
"The African Photo Safari in November is sold out, but not to worry. We have already added our November 2014 Photo Safari in Tanzania to the schedule.
On the same topic of "sold out" seating, the 13th Annual Nikonians Photo Adventure Trip (ANPAT) to Arizona in October is almost sold out, and we have just one seat remaining for our Iceland Photo Adventure from July 29 - August 6."
Checking the updated roster of members going to the 13th ANPAT, we ran across an interesting exchange between some of our frequent participants and a self-described "newbie." Academy faculty member Rick Hulbert (rhulbert) assured a first-timer that all participants share equal standing from the moment they arrive.
Remember that everyone attending was at one time a newbie.
The great thing about the ANPATS is that we all enjoy equal status. We all learn from each other, regardless of our level of experience or amount of gear. People from all walks of life come together in the spirit of the sheer enjoyment of photography. I can tell you that after you meet all of the attendees on the first afternoon and evening, you will not feel like a newbie."
Academy faculty member Steve Simon heads to Toronto, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and San Francisco this month, running our signature Masters series classes on the Nikon D600, D7100, D7000, D800, and D4.
Additionally, he's bringing his famous The Passionate Nikon Photographer Two-Day Workshop based on his popular book The Passionate Photographer: Ten Steps Toward Becoming Great.
Steve is in Toronto this week, followed by New Orleans (July 10-14), Los Angeles (July 24-28) and San Francisco (July 31-August 04)
Also in July, the three-day Timelapse Photography Workshop in San Francisco (starting July 12) with Michael Mariant is a fantastic way to learn the ins and outs of creating stunning timelapse videos.
Check out the Nikonians Academy August, September and October schedules for information on workshops and photo adventures coming to a location near you.
