Nikonians Academy focus on Chicago and Cuba

Academy-Hulbert-SQ-THU_120.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen tells us the Instructors Rick Hulbert and Steve Simon are all set for their upcoming workshops.

Rick Hulbert's Urban and Street Photography Workshop in Chicago starts September 22nd. The four-day session includes plenty of field photography exercises followed by constructive critiques.

Rick's education philosophy is all about photography for smarties. He feels strongly that photographers want to be treated with respect and that he should build on their existing knowledge.

Chicago_300.jpgRick mixes classroom lectures with field photography and image reviews to teach attendees how to photograph the urban environment. This class is truly great and routinely garners some of the highest feedback from students.

Here's a sample from one of our members attending a previous session in the Windy City:
"Just finished the Chicago Urban and Street Photography Workshop with Rick Hulbert - Fantastic! I learned a ton and had a great time. Rick is a fabulous teacher, photographer and Architect.
He really knows his stuff and isn't shy about sharing his experience and knowledge.
Well worth the money as I walked out of the workshop feeling as though I'm headed to the next level as opposed to walking out the workshop with a few good images but haven't learned much."

Cuba - The Passionate Street Photographer

We are three weeks away from Steve Simon's Passionate Street Photographer workshop in Cuba. The workshop begins on September 9th.

Simon-Cuba_325.jpgWe have just enough space for one or two of you to squeak in under the wire. Contact us immediately if interested. The neat thing about this workshop is that Steve combines teaching from his best-selling book, The Passionate Photographer, with the real-world street scenes of Havana.

Every day is an adventure on this trip. This intimate six-day masterclass (limited to 10 students) will take you to some of the most picturesque, interesting and exciting locations on and off the beaten path in Havana and beyond.

Steve will be teaching you new and powerful street photography techniques guaranteed to push you from your comfort zone to new heights in your work and share his street-shooting philosophies gleaned from a lifetime of wandering urban places with his camera.

This intensive workshop will help you find your own unique vision and street style through assignments created to get you past photographic fears and clich├ęs to capturing lyrical, poetic and decisive moments that communicate the energy of the streets.
