Nikonians Academy Spotlight on Urban Feeback
Rick Hulbert's Urban and Street Photography Workshops are receiving excellent reviews, and with a full slate of those workshops scheduled in the months ahead, we thought you might want to check them out.
Here are just a few examples:
?That was the best photographic presentation I have ever attended, without question. I loved your story telling and your analogies ? bodies and buildings, feet and foundations.?
? Lloyd Houghton
?Just a short note to thank you for your recent Urban Travel Workshop. I learned a great deal from your wide-ranging lectures, in fact, more than I have from other workshops I have attended. Your teaching style and methodology really resonated with me. The ?three E?s? of composition are now firmly entrenched and help me to pre-visualize and plan images. We appreciated the significant time and effort you put into both the lectures and field trip portions of this workshop.?
? Gordon Griffiths
?. . . Rick?s background as an Architect makes him a glove fit for a workshop on urban & street photography. As an instructor, Rick uses humor very effectively to convey his principles about framing, cropping and composing a photo. In the field making photos or in a hotel meeting room reviewing student?s images, Rick is non-judgmental, while at the same time he manages to give useful feedback to the students in his classes . . . I look forward to the opportunity to attend other workshops that Rick will teach in the future.?

▪ Los Angeles, California (Dec 11, 2014)
▪ London, United Kingdom (May 14, 2015)

The flash workshops are for anyone who owns a SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910 Speedlight and wants to understand how the i-TTL (intelligent Through The Lens) system works and what Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS) can do for you.

Countdown for Acadia
Only three seats are now available for the Acadia National Park Photography Adventure with Les Picker (starting October 16).
Les knows this park inside out and does a wonderful job of both teaching and helping participants create beautiful images.

Les timed this workshop to take advantage of fall foliage with its resplendent colors.
Outdoors and to the stars
Michael Mariant's Eastern Sierra and Owens Valley workshop (September 18-21) is a top-notch adventure and he's extending his invitation to those member still thinking of taking the few remaining seats. Photograph beautiful fall colors, scenic mountains and stunning astrophotography.
California's Eastern Sierra, a jagged and prominent escarpment rising over 10,000 feet above the Owens Valley, is one of the hidden photographer's gems in California
Many prominent landscape photographers, including the late Galen Rowell, have called Bishop and the Eastern Sierra home and their base for their photographic expeditions into the stunning surroundings
No other region in the country offers the dramatic granite peaks, glacier-carved valleys, dense foliage and roaring mountain streams.
A rare and special treat, exclusive only to the Eastern Sierra & Owens Valley workshop, is an evening at a Deep Space Satellite Dish Array Complex to photograph star trails and the Milky Way, while surrounded by giant satellite dishes.
Each workshop participant gets to pick out their own satellite dish on the pad to use in the foreground of their astrophotography. Past workshop participants remark that this is the highlight of the entire workshop!
