Nikon Photography Courses For National Photo Month

Photograph by Stef King
I just thought I would share this information with my followers, who like me, love photography (and I know there are many of you). I'm still deciding on which courses I will take.

Just in time for National Photo Month, Nikon Australia is offering a range of classes to inspire photographers to get creative for the month.  

Throughout May, Nikon School has launched online, giving fans around Australia the chance to learn the tricks of the trade from their team of Nikon School lecturers. All levels of photographers, from aspiring to seasoned pros, have the chance to upskill from the comfort of their own home.

Surf photographers can tune into 2019 Surf Photo of the Year winner, Stu Gibson's session to learn how he captured the award winning shot. While Heesoo Sung's session will inspire the star gazers with his introduction to capturing star trails.
