Nikon School offers a variety of classes designed to educate and inspire those with a passion for improving their photography with new interactive experiences. Nikon School has expanded its curriculum to include both online courses and destination workshops, in addition to local photography seminars, that invite beginners and enthusiasts to explore new creative possibilities.

In addition to these destination workshops, Nikon School Online allows users to develop their skills from the comfort of their own home. Nikon School Online will expand its curriculum with a new Fundamentals of PhotographyFeaturing Reed Hoffmann class, allowing even more photographers to master the basic principles of photography through in-depth explanations and hands-on demonstrations in real-world scenarios. The class will cover a range of topics including ISO, shutter speed and aperture, low-light and fast action shooting, exposure compensation, autofocus and the basics of composition, that will help to unleash each participant’s creative potential and take their photography to the next level.

To complement these new offerings, several of the industry’s finest photographers will be returning to Nikon School to offer their expertise to aspiring photographers nationwide. Photographers Michael Schwartz, Bob Pearson, JC Carey, Andy Dunaway and Reed Hoffmann will lead seminars and workshops in local markets across the country detailing the basics of photography and teaching the complexities of lighting to create stunning portraits.
