We’ve teamed up with Nikon to launch World in Focus, a series of expeditions that enables you to experience the world’s most scenic destinations while honing your photography skills.
With each trip, you can expect local guides to provide an insider’s perspective of the destination; photography workshops and on-location mentoring from leading talents; access to the latest Nikon camera equipment; and the opportunity to have your photography featured by AFAR.
Here’s a closer look at where we’re headed in early 2018—and the photo-ops and unforgettable memories that await.
