Discuss this workshop
Join professional photographer Mike Hagen (Nikonians Academy Director) and Bo Stahlbrandt and J. Ramon Palacios (Nikonians founders) in this spectacular 10th Annual Nikonians Photo Adventure Trip (ANPAT) to one of the USA's premier photographic locations.
The ANPAT is the Nikonians event of year. Being the 10th this is the Nikonians event of the decade and much attention to details has been placed to make it again a very memorable and most rewarding trip in the company of like-minded fellow Nikonians
You may want to see what previous attendees have to say about our ANPATs
Olympic National Park is an incredibly diverse location for photography. With three distinct climate zones and the world's largest unmanaged population of Roosevelt elk, you will be challenged on every level as a photographer. Expect to photograph wildlife, stunning vistas, quiet streams, dense forests and soaring peaks all within the same week.
The diversity of climate and geography in Olympic National Park’s 908,720 acres of wilderness is one of many reasons it was among the short list of parks around the world named a World Heritage Park by the United Nations in 1981.
