Workshop seats getting rare at Nikonians Academy

Academy-Logo_Galap_SQ_110.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen tells us his Galapagos 2016 photo adventure is down to the final two cabins.

That's right, he's almost sold out and the trip doesn't even leave until September 2016.

Sign up quickly to reserve a cabin for you and your spouse.
Mike works hard to make the experience top notch with excellent shooting itineraries, food, and tour amenities.

hagen_galapagos_2015_325.jpgFor those of you wanting to photograph giant tortoise, marine iguanas and the blue footed booby, this is your chance! The trip includes seven nights on a Galapagos cruise and two nights in Guayaquil Ecuador.

Your expedition yacht has the ability to anchor close to the best attractions and the small group size means that everyone can be nimble while photographing nature's splendor.

This is the perfect trip to participate in a safe, yet intrepid photographic adventure. If you've been looking for a time to check Galapagos off your bucket list, then this is it!

Check Mike Hagen's Galapagos article starting on page 21 in the number 58 edition our eZine: THE NIKONIAN.


Urban_Street_300.jpgProfessional photographer and retired architect and Rick Hulbert keeps on building great workshops. His Urban and Street Photography workshops have been described as probably the best workshops on the subject in the entire USA.

Rick knows how to teach in a way that is engaging, humorous, and extremely helpful. He calls his teaching style, "Photography for Smarties." Check out his classes in Seattle and Chicago.

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.

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


hagen_iceland_hdr_300.jpgMike Hagen leads photography adventure trips to Iceland every summer. Last year's adventure sold out early, so don't wait much longer to sign up for his July 2016 trip.

He and his workshop leading partner Tim Vollmer have optimized their adventure to photograph the very best of Iceland's landscapes and wildlife over the span of one week. Mike and Tim would love to have you travel with them in 2016 for a photo trip you'll never forget.

The schedule includes photographing geothermal sites, glacial lagoons, birds, landscapes, volcanoes, lava fields, waterfalls, and basalt columns. It also features a photo tour of Reykjav?k that includes buildings and architecture.
