Nikonians Academy preps for Year of Adventures

Academy-Logo_Galap_SQ_110.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen tell us his Galapagos Islands trip is all set to go and he has a few spots remaining.
Mike has been taking photographers to the Galapagos for a number of years now and would love to share the beauty and wildlife with you.
Join him and a bunch of other adventurers to photograph the unique fauna of the Galapagos Islands. The trip runs September 13-19, 2015.

Galapagos_seals_300.jpgThe trip includes seven nights on a Galapagos cruise and two nights in Guayaquil Ecuador.

The food on your yacht is wonderful and cooked by some of the best chefs on the water. You will have access to snorkel equipment and kayaks and have the opportunity for underwater photography if you decide to take on that challenge.

Your outfitters run some of the best trips in the Galapagos. They are certified with SmartVoyager, a voluntary environmental program developed by Corporacion y Desarollo from Ecuador and The Rainforest Alliance from New York since 2000. This program gives a "green seal of approval" to tour boats that comply with strict requirements to tread lightly on the area's fragile ecosyste


Yosemite_175.jpgMichael Mariant's photography workshops to Yosemite are some of the best in the industry. He's been traveling to and running workshops in Yosemite for decades.

Raised in a family of teachers, it was natural that this Brooks Institute of Photography graduate would return years later to provide lectures on these approaches to photography. At the same time, what first started as week-long photo trips to Yosemite, Michael began his private fine art landscape workshops following a growing demand from the Brooks students.

He has quite a few workshops catered to different photographic genres.

Rushmore_300.jpgThe 15th Anniversary Annual Nikonians Photo Adventure Trip (ANPAT) in the Fall season is set for the Badlands of South Dakota (September 26-October 3, 2015).

Our annual photographic adventure trip this year will celebrate the Nikonians 15th year. Join our founders in what is sure to be a grand celebration!

This location was chosen not only for its unique scenery; it also has one of the largest concentrations of National and State Parks, monuments, memorials and caves in the Midwest. It offers varied and unique photo opportunities for landscapes and wildlife.


Acadia_250.jpgFor those Nikonians wanting to explore the east coast of the USA, Les Picker has a wonderful photographic workshop in Maine's Acadia National Park from October 15-19, 2015. Les completed his graduate studies in Acadia NP and knows the area like few others do. His workshops takes participants to the most dramatic scenes at the right time of day to help participants capture stunning images.
