Academy highlights stretch into warmer weather

Academy-SQ-Alaska_125.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen has an update on current and future workshops, concluding with one his favorites ? the Iceland Birds and Landscapes Photo Adventure.

This week, a group of photographers descends on Charleston, South Carolina for what is destined to be a fantastic Urban and Street Photography workshop with Rick Hulbert.


If you weren't able make this class on the east coast, then how about heading over to our next Urban and Street Photography Workshop on the west coast in beautiful San Francisco, California

This is a four-day workshop with a maximum enrollment of 10 people, starting April 9.

For our members across the Atlantic, Rick has scheduled an Urban and Street Photography workshop this May for London, England. The London workshop starts on May 14. 

The conference space being used for the workshop is within walking distance of a number of landmarks, buildings and bridges, from Big Ben to Buckingham Palace to the London Eye.



The March 26th - 29th workshop to Death Valley with Michael Mariant is right around the corner. Michael's intimate knowledge of Death Valley is one of the selling points of this workshop since he knows exactly where to go and when to be there for the best photography experience possible.

Capture the vibrancy of Death Valley during shooting sessions throughout the day interspersed with extensive specialized instruction in landscape photography.

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, building on the previous locations techniques and lessons to culminate in a comprehensive lesson in composition, modified exposure, light controls, Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS), and High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography to name just a few.



Jim Stamates' annual Alaska! - Whales, Bears, and Ice Fields Wildlife Photography Adventure is scheduled for July 17 - 23, 2015 and is a perennial favorite.

During this seven-day, six-night adventure Nikonians will have their own private boat to find Humpback and Killer Whales, seals, and other marine mammals, and to take us to a remote area to photograph the largest of the grizzly bears, the Alaskan Brown Bear. With instructions from a professional wildlife photographer you will fill your cards with images that will astound our friends, family, and other Nikonians.

Last year's trip brought some of the best whale photography in Jim's career. Jim does everything he can to maximize opportunities for grizzly bears, birds, sea lions, killer whales, glaciers and everything in between.
