Nikonians Academy Steve Simon's First Look: Nikon DL's


Steve Simon just finished up shooting the promotional campaign for Nikon's new camera release, the DL series.

Nikon asked him to photograph Cuba with the DL24-85 and the DL18-50 because he knows the area so well. 

Steve is taking that vast Cuba knowledge and running a new photo workshop for us called Cuba - The Passionate Street Photographer.

See Steve's DL camera report here.

Rick Hulbert's Urban and Street Photography workshops are some of the best in the industry.

 Last week, Rick and Mike Hagen ran a series of workshops in The Woodlands Texas where attendees spent two days learning Rick's unique approach to photographing architecture and people.

At right are a couple of shots from his class using techniques Rick taught to the workshop participants.

Rick's next Urban and Street Photography workshop is set for Chicago Illinois (September 15-18, 2016) and we'd love to have you along for the trip.

This workshop has a  maximum enrollment of 10 people.

This workshop is designed to get you to think about concepts in Urban Photography that you hadn't thought of or considered before. 

That is, admittedly a rather bold statement. 

However, that is exactly what this four-day experience will achieve.

You will discover how to better frame and crop your images using the long established principles of fine art painting and drawing.

You will learn how to create jaw-dropping images that will be the envy of both your friends and potential future clients.



For travel photographers, nothing beat's Iceland's stunning landscapes and beautiful birds. 

Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen is headed to Iceland this July and would love to have you along for a trip of a lifetime.

Mike has coordinated the trip so we take advantage of summer's best weather while also coinciding with the puffin nesting season. 

Join Mike on his Iceland Photo and Bird Adventure photo tour (July 17-24, 2016).

During your journey, you will photograph some of the most amazing scenery and wildlife Iceland has to offer. From verdant rolling hills to rugged mountains, the landscapes of Iceland are famous for their interplay between light and sky.

Mike also included a few photo sessions with some famous bird populations to stoke your wildlife photography



Our partnership with CreativeLive continues to grow and CreativeLive keeps adding new video training content to their website.

Their library of online workshops is quite extensive and you'll love what they have to offer our Nikonians community. 

Check out the Nikonians page at CreativeLive for workshops selected by Mike Hagen here.

Soon, Mike will be teaching new classes for CreativeLive that will also be available to watch live or download from their library.
