Winter beckons Nikonians Academy photo adventure

Academy-Square-Winter.jpgWinter. It may be colder this year than usual for some areas, but it is also a source of amazing images. 

With many parts of North America experiencing frigid temperatures, Nikonians Academy instructor Michael A. Mariant will soon be leading Nikonians in an outdoor photo adventure designed to take advantage of precisely these conditions.


Join Michael Mariant (Feb. 20 – 23) for his signature Yosemite in Winter: A Season of Contrast workshop. 


Michael explores the park's best features while showcasing the area's austere winter beauty.

Wintertime in Yosemite is peaceful serenity at its best.  This is when you find the least number of tourists, while a blanket of white snow covers the valley, dotting the trees and providing great contrast to the stark granite walls. This workshop will focus on the numerous locations in the valley that are complemented by the snow season.


Death Valley


In March, Michael is running a unique photo workshop to Death Valley that highlights this park's amazing landscapes, beautiful astrophotography and graphic sand dunes. His 4-day Death Valley in the Spring workshop begins on March 13.

Michael Mariant is a master at helping photographers realize their full potential in the field. 

His workshops to North America's National Parks have been praised as some of the best in the country.

New 2-Day Workshops


Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen tells us a popular workshop series has led to new offerings:

"Building on the success of our Urban Photography 4-day workshops, we've just posted a brand new series of 2-day workshops from Rick Hulbert. 

The first is our Mastering Architectural and Urban Photography 2-Day Workshop. The second is the Mastering Composition in Photography 2-Day Workshop. 

These two workshops are designed to be taken as a series, but you can also take them one by one. The price of each two-day workshop is $525, but if you sign up for both at the same time, we will send you a rebate of $155 which lowers the total price from $1,050 to $895."



The Alaska! - Whales, Bears, and Ice Fields Wildlife Photography Adventure is selling quickly. 

Join Jim Stamates for this one of a kind tour through southeast Alaska to photograph its amazing wildlife and landscapes.

The week-long adventure begins July 18 and features the opportunity for Nikonians to venture out in their own private boat to find Humpback and Killer Whales, seals, and other marine mammals, and travel to remote areas to photograph the largest of the grizzly bears, the Alaskan Brown Bear.

Jim is eager to share his knowledge from 30 years as a professional wildlife photographer and his countless trips to Alaska. 

He will teach his 3 Keys to Great Photos, and how to get those stunning images of wildlife while using ‘low impact field techniques’. 

Master Series


The Academy's famous Masters Series workshops for Nikon Cameras and Lightroom 5 will be running all around the USA.

These workshops include classes on cameras such as the Nikon D600, D610, D7100, D7000, D800/D800E, D4, and the brand new Nikon Df.

Currently, our workshops are scheduled for:
