Master Advanced Digital Imaging Workflow

Discuss this workshop

Take advantage of a $100 USD Early Bird rebate when buying your workshop at least a month in advance. (Details below under 'What is provided') With Nikonians Image Doctors Rick Walker and Jason Odell, and Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen, we take your workflow and inkjet printing to the highest level with this four-day workshop.

You’ll be able to take what you learn from this workshop and immediately create your own works of art, regardless of what software or printer you use

The Nikonians Academy concept for teaching digital workflow takes an easy, yet comprehensive approach with two main goals. First, instead of "work" it makes it a streamlined, simplified, repeatable "no-pain, no-frustration" process. Second, it will lead you into elation.

We cover image editing methods using the newest software from Adobe, Nikon, Phase One, Nik Multimedia, Apple and others as needed by students attending.

We cover digital hardware such as monitors, profiling and calibration.

We go into great detail to show you how to make the finest inkjet prints that are worthy of museum display.

You will have full access to our printing lab and will be able to make unlimited large-format prints during the course of the four days.
