Nikonians Academy Sri Lanka trip adds Dubai extension

Academy-Dubai_SQ_120.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen tells us he is nearing the deadline for closing enrollment on our Sri Lanka trip (beginning March 12).

Our intrepid travelers will visit quite a few national parks with amazing wildlife photography opportunities. In these parks, we've arranged transport in open-air vehicles to better photograph leopard, elephants, monkeys, birds and other wildlife.

When not photographing wildlife, our trip will focus on stunning landscapes and beautiful culture.

LesP-Dubai_175.jpgOur trip leader, Les Picker, has added a 4-day extension in Dubai.

Les tells us this destination 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."

Iceland_Horse_300.jpgIceland in the summer is a place every serious photographer should visit at least once in their lifetime. Our photography trip with Mike Hagen hits all the big highlights along the southern coast of Iceland (July 17-24).

Our 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.

Birds, landscapes, waterfalls, and of course, lots of ice. Last year's trip sold out, so don't wait too long to sign up for the 2016 adventure.

This workshop is strictly limited to a maximum of 10 participants. This means that you'll receive hands-on training from your workshop leaders every single day. Our goal is to help you capture incredible images and our small group size ensures you are well taken care of.

Hulbert-Chicago_300-st.jpgRick Hulbert has spent his entire career becoming an internationally awarded architect. He has combined his thorough knowledge of architecture with his professional photography experience to put together a tremendous class called the Urban and Street Photography Workshop.

Rick has led these workshops for many years now and they are some of the best-reviewed classes we teach. Our next workshop is scheduled for Chicago, Illinois September 15-19.
There is no requirement for fancy equipment. Any and every brand of camera will work, so we strongly encourage participants with Canon, Sony, Fuji, Leica and other camera brands to attend. The principles taught will also apply to point and shoot cameras, new mirrorless cameras, and yes. . . even camera phones!

We will discuss the elementary basics of how people see, how the camera sees, and why extending the Dynamic Range of light captured in your images can be so enticing and fulfilling. This is true, whether you are wanting to document reality, or wanting to interpret reality.
