Academy spotlight on New York City and Iceland
Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen tells us Steve Simon has scheduled another of his world-famous Passionate Street Photographer workshops for New York City, June 16-21.
This workshop is designed to help you go from good to great and will be set in the bustling metropolis of New York.
Check out what Gold member Herb Brail (hbrail) has to say about Steve's workshop:
"Steve is an incredibly talented photographer and phenomenal teacher. The workshop exceeded my expectations and was an extraordinarily valuable experience. I particularly appreciated the specific assignments rather than simply being told "go out and shoot".
Even though I considered myself a fairly advanced amateur, this workshop was of tremendous benefit to me.
With an appropriate mixture of both shooting and critiques with feedback and suggestions, I learned not only from Steve, but from the styles and techniques of the other participants.
New York City offers a dazzling array of photographic venues that were significantly enhanced by Steve's guidance and instruction.
His passion as a teacher to reach out to every participant in order to maximize the workshop experience was evident each and every day."

Meanwhile, Mike Hagen is preparing for his July photo adventure to Iceland.
The itinerary includes special access to wildlife sanctuaries, boat tours, and island bird reserves.
During summer, Iceland is truly the land of the midnight sun as it never truly gets dark. The evening light lasts forever and sunsets go on and on and on.
These sunsets are especially spectacular at the Glacier Lagoon, where the group visits multiple times during the week in order to maximize opportunities for great images.
For Mike, the key to success is proper planning in advance:
"We work hard to get you into the right places at the right time for the most beautiful Iceland photographs you can imagine.
We still have room on our July trip and would love to have more Nikonians and Nikonians spouses along for the adventure."
