2016 Academy Spotlight: Czech Republic and Sri Lanka

Academy-SQ-Sri_lanka_leopard_110.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen has added travel workshops to Sri Lanka and the Czech Republic/Prague for the coming year.
The 12-day (11-night) Sri Lanka: Culture and Wildlife photo adventure covers March 12-23, 2016 and is limited to 12 participants. 
This will be your opportunity to photograph wildlife and culture in an exotic and safe location, led by Lester Picker. 
Each morning you will embark on an adventure taking you from fog-shrouded tea plantations to cascading waterfalls, en route to photographing mountain sunsets.

You will visit the country's most picturesque temples and historical structures for architectural photos and opportunities to interact with Sri Lanka's wonderful people.

One of the highlights of the tour will be spending two days (four safari treks) in famed Yalla National Park, which boasts the densest wild leopard population on earth, along with bull elephants, crocodiles, water buffalo, monkeys and an incredible variety of colorful birds.

You will have the opportunity to explore a large variety of photographic themes, including landscape, countryside, castles and chateaus, colonnades, rural houses and forest animals.

Add four-star hotel accommodations and a scheduled boat ride and you have the makings of a photo adventure in the best Nikonians Academy style.

This 8-day photo adventure to the best of Bohemia will cover historic sites as well as modern marvels such as one of the youngest of national parks in the Czech Republic.
