Hagen-Hulbert tag-team targets Texas in April

Academy-SQ-Woodlands_Hagen_Hulbert_110.jpgWhat's better than a Nikonians Academy instructor leading a workshop series?

Try two Nikonians Academy instructors at the same location presenting their specialties in a 'pick and choose' assortment tag-team format.

That assortment includes your choice of customized training at various price ranges (depending on the subject matter and number of courses you choose) capped off with a free Photo Walk.

Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen and Rick Hulbert are collaborating on a 5-day workshop series in The Woodlands, Texas from April 5th - 9th, 2016.

Academy-Woodlands_300.jpgMike 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.

All photographers are welcome to attend, as our instruction includes Nikon, Canon and other brands of cameras. We'd love to have you and your friends come to Texas for this workshop series. It is truly going to be great."

---------- Looking Ahead-----------------------------

hagen_iceland_hdr_300.jpgOur Iceland 2016 photo adventure is set to be an incredible journey. Workshop leader Mike Hagen and his co-leader Tim Vollmer, are Iceland veterans who have a proven track record of leading top notch trips. We travel during late July in order to maximize light and photograph during the best weather. These trips are beautiful.

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.

Co-leader Tim Vollmer 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 Reykjavík that includes buildings and architecture.

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


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.
