Nikonians Academy June Highlights

Our Nikonians Academy instructors are presenting a wide range of workshops and photo adventures in June.


Jim Stamates leads off with his four day Yellowstone Wildlife and Landscapes - Spring 2014 photo adventure June 2-5. 

Springtime in Yellowstone NP is an exciting time. Bison, Moose and Elk have dropped their young. Bears are on the prowl looking for opportunities to fatten up after a long hibernation. 

You will arrive by dawn at Mammoth Hot Springs looking for newly born elk calves. 


The travertine formations present you with unending abstract compositions as the hot water bubbles out of the ground. 

After a great morning shoot you are off to find more wildlife babies and incredible landscapes. 

Your are invited to join Jim and Kathy Stamates to learn, experience , and capture the essence of Yellowstone National Park in the Spring.


Steve Simon will be in Calgary, Alberta, Canada hosting his Masters Series, featuring Master the Nikon D800, Df and D4 - In Depth 1 on June 12, Master the Nikon D800, Df and D4 - In Depth 2 on June 13 and The Passionate Nikon Photographer Two-Day Mastery Workshop with Steve Simon starting June 14. He will continue his Canadian tour in Edmonton presenting the same workshops June 19-22.


Meanwhile, Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen takes the Master Series to Seattle, Washington, presenting Master the Nikon D800, Df and D4 - In Depth 1 and Master the Nikon D800, Df and D4 - In Depth 2 June 13-14.

Richard Hulbert will also be in Seattle, with his four day Urban and Street Photography Workshop starting June 19.


This workshop series 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.

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.

While the illustrated lectures will give you the fundamental information you need, you will spend a significant portion of the workshop in the field, with hands on photography. Your professional instructor, Rick Hulbert, will also give daily constructive critiques of your own selected images which is a key part of the learning experience.


The month will conclude with Michael A. Mariant's Giant Redwoods of Northern California photo adventure (June 26-29).

This four day 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.

This truly is a collaboration of extensive, comprehensive landscape photography education coupled with a dynamic location.
