Snow just in time for Yosemite workshop

Academy-Logo-SQ-Winter-Yosemite_120.jpgAfter years of not having snow (at the right times) in Yosemite, it looks like this year might be a different story.
Michael Mariant's Yosemite in Winter is shaping up to be a wonderful workshop with snow piling up in the Sierras.
Join him and our intrepid group of Nikonians for this workshop scheduled February 18 - 21, 2016.

Yosemite-Winter_300.jpgThis workshop will focus on the numerous locations in the Yosemite Valley that are complemented by the snow season as well as timed for one of the few rare scenes in Yosemite that happens only once a year for about 10 days in only the perfect conditions: the backlit illumination of Horsetail Fall by the setting sun, called 'The Firefall' as immortalized by the original 1973 Galen Rowell photo.

All three sunset opportunities of the workshop will be devoted to capturing this elusive visual phenomenon.

This workshop focuses not only on the 'where' to take the pictures, but also on the 'how' to take pictures, incorporating photographic education throughout the workshop at each location.


SriLanka_300_arch.jpgOur Sri Lanka: Culture and Wildlife photography workshop is all set to go forward. Les is an expert in Sri Lankan photography and has traveled to this beautiful island nation many times.

He likens the trip to an experience that rivals Africa, but at a fraction of the cost. Our 12-day Sri Lanka photo adventure runs March 12-23, 2016.

Join us for a 12-day (11-night) exploration of the unparalleled photographic possibilities in this island nation. Located off the southernmost coast of India, Sri Lanka is replete with some of the oldest Buddhist and Hindu temples in the world (many still in use), some of the friendliest and most photogenic people on Earth, and wildlife that rivals Africa?s best locations.

In this photography tour we 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.


Hulbert-architectural_300.jpgIf you are looking for something a bit more domestic, then consider joining Rick Hulbert on one of his critically acclaimed Urban and Street Photography workshops. We currently have two cities planned; Seattle, WA in March 2016 and Chicago, IL in September 2016. Learn architectural photography from one of the best in the industry.

Urban environments comprise the most diverse, target-rich places to photograph . . . anywhere. Most photos contain a ?subject? within a setting or background. The cool reality is that Buildings and Urban Places can be both subjects and/or settings. Think about all the images you have made or will make in the future that contain buildings as the featured subject or as backgrounds to a myriad of other photo subjects . . . like people and their activities.

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.
