Academy Spotlight - Africa, Texas, Sri Lanka
The Nikonians Academy Tanzania photo safari is on for November 2016. This marks Academy Director Mike Hagen's tenth safari to Tanzania and he keeps refining them to be better and better.
His trip focuses on northern Tanzania's national parks including Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire and Lake Manyara.
We still have spots available, and most people who come, bring their spouse, but we also have a lot of individual shooters attend as well.
One of the best aspects of this trip is that we are only allowing three photographers per vehicle. This means that each person will have an entire row to themselves with one seat for their camera gear and the other seat for themselves.
There will be plenty of room to move around and everyone will have perfect access to all photo opportunities.
Obviously, this trip is very focused on photography and each day is optimized to photograph wildlife and landscapes. More information here.
Rick Hulbert and Mike Hagen are running a week-long series of workshops in The Woodlands, Texas (April 5-9, 2016).
These workshops are in conjunction with The Woodlands Camera Club and their 10-year anniversary. We've decided to open the workshops up to all Nikonians.org users as well. Our classes won't be Nikon specific, but will cover on a wide variety of photographic topics including:
► 2-day urban and street photography workshop
► Free photo walk for anyone
► Series 1 = Wildlife photography, HDR, Lightroom CC, Travel and street photography
► Series 2 = Studio lighting, composition, AF for action & wildlife, Panorama photography
Mike tells us the focus for this project is flexibility:
"We are offering classes on a variety of topics including Lightroom CC, studio lighting, architectural photography, street photography, composition, HDR imaging, panorama photography and autofocus for sports/wildlife.
You can sign up for one workshop or all workshops. We also have a photo walk scheduled for the evening of Thursday, April 7th and would love to see you there."
We're now making our last call for Les Picker's Sri Lanka: Culture and Wildlife photography trip (March 12-23, 2016).
Les leads photo workshops to Sri Lanka every two years and says that the photo opportunities are like none other in the world.
For this trip, Les Picker, has added a 4-day extension in Dubai.
Les tells us this extension is a photographer?s dream:
?Those of us who elect the extension will leave from Sri Lanka and fly directly to Dubai, the epicenter of the United Arab Emirates.
Truly a cosmopolitan city, Dubai has the most skyscrapers of any city in the world. Beyond that, city planners have given unparalleled freedom to architects.
The result is a photographer?s paradise, with angles, reflections, spiraling towers, and architectural landscapes that are unmatched.?
If interested in the pre-trip, email Les directly for more information.You can find the address at Les Picker's Sri Lanka page.
