Nikonians Academy preps for Sri Lanka, Chicago, Seattle
Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen is finishing up the paperwork for the 2015 curriculum and he's now setting his sights on the coming year.
Two items on the 2016 curriculum are in this week's Academy Spotlight.
It is important to note that while the first item (Sri Lanka) may be several months in the future, there is a November deadline for booking your reservation.
The workshop is limited to 12 participants.
In this photography tour you will intimately explore Sri Lanka's landscape, from vaunted mountains to its pristine seashore, from its tidy and colorful tea plantations to its lush forests.
Sri Lanka can arguably be called the most beautiful island in Asia, a tiny gem with a rich mix of culture, wildlife, history, people, geography and tropical weather. Join Les Picker and the Nikonians Academy for a 12-day (11-night) exploration of the exciting photographic possibilities in this magnificent island nation.
Sri Lanka is replete with some of the oldest Buddhist and Hindu temples in the world, some of the friendliest and most photogenic people on Earth, and wildlife that rivals Africa's best locations.
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. We will also do safaris in two other National Parks famous for their wild elephant populations, monkeys, crocodiles, colorful birds, and other wildlife. Most evenings we will have an optional image review and critique.
Our trip runs March 12-23, 2016 and we are accepting signups through the end of November.
Rick Hulbert's highly reviewed Urban and Street Photography workshops are back for 2016 in Seattle and Chicago. Learn from the architectural master how to photograph urban environments using principles that will make you a better photographer.
Rick teaches the science and art of urban photography in a light-hearted, but technical 4-day workshop designed to help you see the urban world from a different perspective.
This workshop is designed to improve your photography regardless of whether you consider picture taking a hobby, or you are a serious enthusiast, professional photographer, or earn your living as a member of the global real estate, design, and construction industries.
There are accepted principles for photographing buildings and other man made structures. Knowing these principles will make you a better photographer. Understanding the science and art behind these principles will allow you to learn how to 'break rules' in a deliberate, meaningful way.
