Nikonians Academy adding dates, courses to 2015 calendar


Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen reports the academy staff is wrapping up the October schedule with plenty more to come before the year is out.

Mike posted a quick message from the road:

"What a busy few weeks we've had at the Nikonians Academy. With photo adventure travel to Acadia National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Yosemite National Park and classroom workshops in Los Angeles and Seattle, we are busier than ever. This week, we have workshops in New York and still have a few seats available if you'd like to sign up."

If you are thinking of signing up for one of the New York City workshops (led by Steve Simon) here's a look at the schedule:

Master the Nikon D600, D610, D7000 and D7100 - In Depth 2 - Oct. 22
Master the Nikon D800, D810, Df, D4 and D4s - In Depth 1 - Oct. 23
Master the Nikon D800, D810, Df, D4 and D4s - In Depth 2 - Oct. 24
The Passionate Nikon Photographer Two-Day Mastery Workshop - Oct. 25-26


Coming up, Mike Hagen is leaving for Tanzania to lead is 8th Photo Safari on November 1st. If you missed this year's trip, then don't wait o sign up for next year's African Photo Safari. It is already posted and members are beginning to sign up.

The dates for 2015 are November 4-15.

Mike tells us he likes to give plenty of planning time for his Safari participants:

"Yes, it is a long ways off, but start planning now for the trip of a lifetime! We are
limiting the size to 12 participants and this number includes your tour leader.

One of the best aspects of this trip is that we are only allowing three photographers per
vehicle. This means that each person will have an entire row to themselves with
one seat for their camera gear and the other seat for themselves. There will be
plenty of room to move around and everyone will have perfect access to all
photo opportunities."

Looking ahead...


Join Rick Hulbert in Los Angeles this December for his signature Urban and Street Photography workshop designed to help photographers with composition, creativity and passion. This is a four-day workshop with a maximum enrollment of 10 people.

This workshop is designed to get you to think about concepts in architectural and urban photography that you hadn't thought of or considered before. That is, admittedly, a rather bold statement. However, that is exactly what this four-day experience will achieve.

You will discover how to better frame and crop architectural and urban images using the long established basic principles of portrait, wedding, and event photography. By the way, if you are a wedding or event ehotographer, this workshop will take your photography up a notch as well.

You will learn how to create jaw-dropping images that will be the envy of both your photographer friends and potential future clients.

Rick is one of the best instructors in the industry and you will love his mix of detailed knowledge and humor.


Next Year...

We are working on our 2015 workshop schedule right now and will be posting
more workshops
within the next week for cities around the USA and countries
around the world. Look for workshops on new cameras, new flashes, new software
and new locations. We love photography here at the Nikonians Academy and have a
passion to share that love with the world.
