Nikonians Academy Spotlight: Urban Seattle and Iceland in Summer

Academy-SQ-Iceland-Bird_110.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen puts this week's Spotlight on two workshops with totally different approaches.
The first places the emphasis on urban environments and the second takes our members on an incredible journey to the land of Fire and Ice.

Rick Hulbert is preparing for his first workshop of the New Year, when he leads attendees through diverse, target-rich places to gather images of Seattle. His four-day Urban and Street Photography workshop with a maximum enrollment of 10 people will begin on March 17, 2016.

Urban_Street_300.jpgThis 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.

You will learn how a basic understanding of Street Photography will assist in your architectural and urban photography.

Take a walk on the wild side with Mike as you hike into volcanic craters and explore the stunning country in private tour vehicles. Because you will be traveling as an independent group, your guides and drivers are dedicated to getting you to the best locations in the most incredible light.

Mike's partner on this trip is the world-renowned photographer Tim Vollmer who is a native of Iceland and has been running photo tours for years. He has one of the best reputations in the industry.

Get ready to photograph geothermal sites, glacial lagoons, birds, landscapes, volcanoes, lava fields, waterfalls, and basalt columns. Mike also included a photo tour of Reykjav?k that includes buildings and architecture.

This workshop is strictly limited to a maximum of 10 participants, and early reservations are highly recommended.
