September 2014 Newsletter

Changes to Nikon School—  If you’ve attended Nikon School in the past, you may want to revisit the course offerings.  Instead of a full day Saturday and Sunday class, we’ve introduced half day classes pegged to specific topics Friday evening and twice on Saturday.  I’ll be teaching this year in Boston, New York, Orlando, Atlanta, Dallas, and Minneapolis.  I’ll also be teaching a two-day hands-on DSLR Video class in New York and somewhere in California TBD.

Check out the classes here.  http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-And-Explore/Nikon-School/index.page
