Last call for London Nikonians Academy workshop

Academy-SQ-Hulbert_125.jpgThis is your last week to sign up for Rick Hulbert's Urban and Street Photography workshop in London. He's one of the best in the business and would love to have you attend. 

He can almost guarantee this workshop will be a highlight of your year.

This is a four-day workshop with a maximum enrollment of 10 people, starting May 14th

It is designed to get you to think about concepts in architectural and urban photography that you hadn?t thought of or considered before.

RichardHulbert_175.jpgThat 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 photographer, this workshop will take your photography up a notch as well.

Richard Hulbert is an International Award winning and published architect, urban designer, and photographer. As a photographer, Rick has been awarded a Laureate recognition within the World Wide Nikonians community.

He has been a frequent lecturer, teacher and Seminar Panel participant on four continents. Richard has been named a Fellow in the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada which is among the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a member. He is a former President of the Architectural Institute of British Columbia. Notably, Richard is also an Academician in the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts, one of the youngest members ever to be elected to that august body. 


Galapagos and Tanzania
Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen recently shared his scheduling strategy as he prepares for two of his favorite photo adventures.


Mike chooses to travel to the Galapagos in September because:
"That's when most of the tourism is down and we tend to have our viewing sites all to ourselves. Wildlife is amazingly abundant and our opportunities to shoot mammals, reptiles and birds are around every corner."

Each day will feature a different area of the amazing Galapagos Islands. Your expedition yacht has the ability to anchor close to photo attractions and the small group size means that you can be nimble while photographing nature's splendor.

The trip includes seven nights on a Galapagos cruise and two nights in Guayaquil Ecuador. The food on the yacht is wonderful and cooked by some of the best chefs on the water. You have access to snorkel equipment and kayaks, and also have the opportunity for underwater photography if you decide to take on that challenge.

Based on his previous experiences in Africa, Mike tells us: 

hagen_tanzania_250.jpg"November is one of the best times to travel to Tanzania for wildlife photography. The grasslands are dry which means that the grass is lower and we have amazing opportunities to photograph the big cats as they hunt. Because our trip is entirely dedicated to photography, we spend as much time as possible in the National Parks and Conservation areas taking photos.

These trips are also wonderful trips for spouses to attend as well. We have a lot of flexibility each day and if a spouse wants to stay back at the lodge for a relaxing afternoon, then they are welcome to do so while others in the group head out for an amazing day of photography. It is common for non-photographer spouses to travel together with photographers on our trips."


Spring Wildlife

Yellowstone-Spring_275.jpgJoin Jim Stamates for our spring wildlife photography funshops in Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

Jim is one of the best when it comes to leading photographers to wildlife in the most beautiful light.
The Grand Teton in the Spring dates are May 25-28, 2015, followed by Yellowstone, June 1-4, 2015.

Jim has been creating photographic images for more than 35 years. He majored in photography at college and after a short stint as a commercial photographer in San Francisco, where he photographed Janice Joplin, The Jefferson Airplane, and Richie Havens, he moved to Lake Tahoe and focused his talents on the photography and preservation of our natural surroundings.

His respect for wildlife takes precedence over "getting the shot." His philosophy is rewarded by a unique intimacy with his subjects.
