Fall ANPAT seats going fast

Academy-15ANPAT-SQ_Horn_120.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen tells us the 15th Anniversary ANPAT (Annual Nikonians Photo Adventure Trip) to the Badlands in South is already about half sold out.

Join us as we celebrate the Nikonians' 15th year of operation by doing what we do best ... taking pictures!

The anniversary ANPAT runs from September 26 to October 3 in South Dakota. Trip Coordination and leadership duties are in the hands of Moderating Team member Eric Bowles.


As an added bonus, there will be a near total eclipse of a "super moon" just after sunset during our time in the Badlands.

The lunar eclipse arrives on the evening of September 27 beginning at sundown. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. Weather permitting, the 15th Anniversary ANPAT attendees we'll be at a great location to catch it.

If you are an ANPAT veteran, you well know why you should not miss it. If you are new to our Annual Nikonians Photo Adventure Trips you must come to learn why Nikonians is not just "a site" but a full rewarding community experience of a brotherhood.

Check our current discussion on this photo adventure to see what our members are planning.  



If you enjoy wildlife photography, you need to check out the spring season photo opportunities offered throughout the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park ecosystem with Jim Stamates.

Spring is when all the baby animals come out to play. We'll be looking to photograph animals such as moose, bear, wolves, coyote, bison, birds and everything in between. Jim calls his trips ?Fun Shops?  "Because if it's not fun, I'm not doing it."

As always, his trips are rich with instruction, how-to, humor and amazing photography.

For Jim, respect for wildlife takes precedence over ?getting the shot.? His philosophy is rewarded by a unique intimacy with his subjects. Dedicated to the proper and ethical behavior toward nature, Jim champions his ?low impact field techniques? through his In The Rhythm? lectures and workshops that emphasize the well-being of the subject.



Rick Hulbert's next Urban and Street Photography Workshop is scheduled for London, May 14-17, 2015. This week, he's in San Francisco running the same workshop for a group of happy participants. Join him in London for a class you won't forget.

His conference space is within walking distance of a number of landmarks, buildings and bridges (including Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye).

There are numerous hotels in the area as well as great access to transit if attendees are staying out of the downtown.



It's time to start planning for your fall photo trips. Here's what we have to offer both domestically and internationally:

? Galapagos Photography Adventure (starts September 13)

? Eastern Sierra (starts September 24)

? Grand Teton Wildlife in the Fall (starts September 28)

? Acadia National Park (starts October 15)

? Advanced Photography Course in Yosemite (starts October 23)

? Infrared Photography in Yosemite (starts November 3)
