Academy Spotlight: Chicago, Elephants and CreativeLive

Academy-Logo-Africa-Elephant-SQ_120.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen has three updates this week.

The first points to one of our most popular workshop series, hosted by Rick Hulbert.

The second spotlights your opportunity to join Mike at one of the ideal locations for photographing elephants in Africa.

The third update highlights online classes available to the community through our partnership with CreativeLive.



We have one month to go until Rick Hulbert's Chicago Urban and Street Photography Workshop.

Rick is one of our Academy success stories and does such a wonderful job on his workshops.

He's thought through all the details for this workshop and has created a curriculum that's truly one of the best in the world.

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!

Join Rick in Chicago next month for an enlightening class that will help you better see and photograph the urban landscape.



Tanzania's elephant population is one of the more robust in the world. One of the best places to photograph these giants is in Tarangire National Park. Mike Hagen has designed this November's photo safari to take full advantage of the park in order to maximize elephant photography.

Mike tells us:

"Tarangire is one of my favorite places to photograph elephants. Here, you are able to compose herds of elephants against giant acacia trees, babies interacting with their mothers, all from just a few meters away."

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.

Join Mike on this year's safari (November 4-15, 2016).
