Academy Director thanks workshop participants


Mike Hagen, Academy Director, would like to thank the over 1,200 individuals who participated in a Nikonians Academy workshop during 2013.

Here is Mike's end-of-year message to our members:

"It was a wonderful year that literally spanned the globe. 2014 is shaping up to be another banner year for us.


Our instructor team has new classes, new cities and new adventures just waiting to be explored. Join us for the best "small workshop" instruction in the world. Many workshops are already on the schedule and we'll be posting lots more of our Masters Series workshops very soon.

Entering the New Year, I encourage all our members to take a minute and visit our Nikonians Academy pages to see the variety of workshops and photo adventure trips coming to a location near you.

I'll conclude with two stellar examples: Join Jim Stamates on his Winter Bald Eagles of Klamath Basin Photography Workshop this February in Klamath Falls, Oregon. 

This workshop is designed to help participants become better bird photographers while helping them to understand predator/prey behavior. 


Jim will share low impact field techniques which have helped him capture thousands of amazing photographs that have been published worldwide. 

He will use his 35 years of experience and knowledge of wildlife, birds, and the natural environment to help you express your uniqueness through your photography. 

He will also share a little known secret on how to find and get close to wildlife.


Rick Hulbert has expanded his very popular and highly-reviewed Urban and Street Photography Workshops to Berlin, Germany and Cambridge, England.

These four-day workshops will improve your photography regardless of whether you consider picture taking a hobby, or you are a serious enthusiast, or a professional photographer, or earn your living as a member of the global real estate, design, and construction industries.

Our Berlin dates are set for March 20 - 23, 2014 and our Cambridge dates are set for March 27-30, 2014 and we encourage you to sign up today.

Once again, on behalf of the Nikonians Academy Team, thank you to everyone who helped make this past year a success. We look forward to sharing great times and great images with you in 2014."

--- Mike Hagen, Director, Nikonians Academy
