PRESS RELEASE: Take Your Photography Further With Nikon School
Nikon Australia is excited to announce the launch of Nikon School, a series of hands on classes that will guide students through the vital steps in the digital photography process. Sessions will be held at leading venues across Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane, and will be presented by some of Australia’s most talented and revered photographers.
Hands on workshops
The series will begin with an Introduction to DSLR class on Saturday 26th June 2010, designed to familiarise students with the key features and functions of a Nikon DSLR. Melbourne’s Marriot Hotel, the Quay West Suites in Brisbane and the Sydney Harbour Marriot Hotel will host the Nikon School sessions.
“Each class will feature dedicated ‘hands on’ workshops, making the most of each location’s close proximity to popular landmarks, botanical gardens and city vistas. Photographers will have plenty of opportunity to practice new techniques under expert guidance,” says Nick Segger, Nikon Australia’s Senior Marketing Manager.
Introduction to DSLR
The Introduction to DSLR class is ideal for newcomers to the world of digital SLR photography or anyone looking to refresh their DSLR knowledge. Students will learn to overcome many of the challenges faced by photographers, developing a deeper understanding of photography basics, terminology and techniques. The course will cover everything from basic layout of the camera through to in-camera post production methods.
“The Introduction to DSLR class will encourage students to use their DSLR to its full potential and expand their visual creativity. Our skilled instructors will guide DSLR users as they experiment with the camera’s full range of functions and gain confidence in their photography,” says Segger.
Additional classes coming soon
From August 2010, additional classes will be added to the series alongside the Introduction course, offering a range of options for camera enthusiasts and more experienced shooters to improve their knowledge and expertise whilst exploring new techniques.
The classes will cost $249.00 including GST and are scheduled from 10am – 4pm on Saturdays.
To ensure personalised instruction and maximize student participation, enrollment will be limited to a maximum of 15 students per class. The class fee will cover the four-part lecture program and hands-on training for the full day, and students will require a digital SLR camera and basic lens to participate.
