Director adds workshop support for Nikon Df and D610

Academy-SQ-Urb_200.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen reports the newest DSLR cameras in Nikon's inventory now have corresponding workshop support coming in March, April and May.

Mike and Steve Simon will be covering the USA in:  

New York (Mar 26 – 30), Los Angeles (Apr 1 – 6), Fairfield NJ (Apr 3 – 6) - hosted at Unique Photo Super Store, Chicago (Apr 8-13), Dallas (Apr 29 - May 4) and Houston (May 6 – 11).

Mike tells us he will continue to add cities to the schedule and he's very close to opening up new workshops for the summer. 

Looking ahead:


The Urban and Street Photography workshop is sold out for San Francisco but we have two remaining spots available for Dallas, Texas (Feb 20-23).

This workshop series led by Richard Hulbert is designed to 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.

There are rules for photographing buildings and other man-made structures, and knowing these rules will make you a better photographer. Mastering these rules will allow you to learn how “break” them in a deliberate, meaningful way.

You will learn how a basic understanding of street photography will assist in your architectural and urban photography. You will discover how the fundamental principles of travel photography will enhance your architectural and urban imaging.

Richard will also bring this series to Berlin, Germany and Cambridge, UK. The Berlin workshop (starting March 20) is down to its final two seats remaining and we still have a few available seats for the Cambridge, UK workshop (starting March 27).


Klamath Falls - Bald Eagles of Klamath Basin – Down to the final three seats


Join professional wildlife photographer Jim Stamates at the Winter Wings Festival . This action filled 2-day field workshop starts Feb 12th. You will be photographing the many birds of the Klamath Basin including Bald Eagles, Hawks, Owls, and waterfowl. This is a prime opportunity to focus on the hundreds of Bald Eagles that winter at the Klamath Basin NWR along with thousands of Swans, Geese, and Ducks. This is the place to be for wintering waterfowl, bald eagle and birds of prey photography.

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


Yosemite - Yosemite in Winter: A season of Contrast - Few seats remaining


This workshop led by Michael A. Mariant will focus on the numerous locations in the Yosemite Valley that are complemented by the snow season as well as timed for one of the few rare scenes in Yosemite that happens only once a year for about 10 days in only the perfect conditions: the backlit illumination of Horsetail Fall by the setting sun, called 'The Firefall' as immortalized by the original 1973 Galen Rowell photo.

All three sunset opportunities of the workshop will devoted to capturing this elusive visual phenomenon. The 4-day workshop begins February 20th.

This workshop focuses not only on the "where" to take the pictures, but also on the "how" to take pictures, incorporating photographic education throughout the workshop at each location.

By building on the previous location's techniques and lessons, this allows for culmination in a comprehensive lesson in pre-visualization, composition, modified exposure and light controls.
