Hey everyone. I wanted to give you a quick run down of where/what/when I’ll be teaching in the coming months.
The International Society of Aviation Photographers is having their annual symposium this week and I’ll be heading out to Seattle to teach there. I’ve heard amazing things about this conference so I’m really excited to be there. I’ll be teaching some Lightroom classes there on Thursday, but they’ve got a great few days planned so if you’re going make sure you stop in and say hi.
Norway Photoshop Conference
If you live in, near or around the Norway area I wanted to let you know I’ll be teaching at a conference there later this month (May 30th). Here’s a link to the conference website. I’ll be teaching Photoshop along side 3 other gurus (Kenneth Sortland Myklebust, Tommy Luhtanen, and Guy M Huste). I personally can’t read the website but I do know that I’ll be teaching my Photoshop compositing classes there.
Landscape Workshop In The Palouse
In early-mid June I’ll be teaching a full week landscape photography workshop in the Palouse (Washington state) and Olympic National Park (with a quick one-day stop at Mt. Rainier) with my good buddy Bill Fortney. I wrote about it on the blog here. It looks like there was one more last minute cancellation, so if you think you want to join us then make sure contact Bill ASAP to grab that last spot and get details.
Cape Code/Orleans Camera Lightroom Workshop
I’m teaching a Lightroom workshop in Cape Cod at Orleans Camera on July 20th and 21st. It’s a two-day workshop and you can go to either part (or both), but I believe the Sunday portion is filled or close to it. I’ll be teaching Lightroom from the ground up as well as some classes on going further into editing your photos with Photoshop and Lightroom. Here’s the link to sign up. Oh, and I’ll be in Cape Cod for 5 days so if you know of any great shooting locations please let me know
Seminars and other workshops always get added but this is all I know for sure at this point. I’ll keep you posted. Have a good one!
I’ll be going live with Adobe and Scott Kelby on our weekly talk show, The Grid, to talk about their plans for photographers in the Adobe Creative Cloud.
If you’re a photographer (pro or not, that uses Lightroom and Photoshop) and been wondering if the creative cloud makes sense for you then you’re not alone. I hear it in just about every seminar I teach. Well, Adobe is sending one of their guys here so we can grill him live about what they have in store for photographers in the cloud. Plus, he’s going to give a few sneak peaks about some technology to come. I hope you can join us live and jump in with your questions.
When: 4pm ET Today
A couple of weeks ago I posted about a new online training class (for Kelby Training) that I’m doing on Landscape Photography. Your responses were so helpful, and it really helped fuel me for this trip that I’m leaving on today. The Kelby Training crew and I are heading out to Moab, Utah to Canyonlands National Park for the first class. I’ve got a lot of great stuff planned and I’m really excited to dive in. Again, I owe every one of you who left a message that day because your feedback will definitely help make the class better.
Next up, for all of you Lightroom fans, I wrote an article for SmugMug called 5 Ways to Kickstart Your Lightroom Workflow. It’s free and you can check it out over on Smugmug’s website right here.
I’m sure things will be pretty crazy shooting and filming this week but I’ll do my best to keep you posted from Moab and post some photos along the way. Thanks and have a good one!
Hey everyone. If you live in, near or around the Norway area I wanted to let you know I’ll be teaching at a conference there in late May. I was contacted last year to teach at the same conference and was so incredibly bummed that I already had a commitment. But there was no way I was letting it pass by again this year, so I’m in!
Here’s a link to the conference website. I’ll be teaching Photoshop along side 3 other gurus (Kenneth Sortland Myklebust, Tommy Luhtanen, and Guy M Huste). I personally can’t read the website but I do know that I’ll be teaching my Photoshop compositing classes there.
I Need Some Photo Locations
I actually only teach for a day, but I’ll be there for 7 days so if anyone knows some great photography spots or a good photo guide (yeah, I know, it’s Norway – the whole country is a great photography spot), please let me know. I won’t really be able to make it that far north, but I’m going to be shooting my ass off for 7 days, so I’m open to anything. I’ll fly into Oslo, stay there for a few days and then my flight leaves from Bergen 5 days later. Everything in between is open.
I’m so excited to be a part of this conference and if you’re in the area I hope you can attend. I’ve heard such great things about the people in Norway, and I can’t wait for this trip to get here. Have a good one!
I just got word that the latest issue of Lightroom Magazine (issue #4) is up on the App Store. If you’ve got an iPad, here’s the link to the free app where you can download the first issue for free. Each issue after that is $4.99. I’ve also included a few screen captures from the app (Cover, Table of Contents and my Editors Note).

The magazine app has been getting rave reviews from everyone I come across so I hope you’ll check it out. Here’s the link to the app on the App Store. Enjoy!
Happy Good Friday! I’m taking the day off to eat lots of pizza (not that I’m a practicing catholic, but any excuse to eat pizza is a good one ), and go see GI Joe with my kids. But I thought I’d leave you with a couple of things to do today in case you’re not spending an exorbitant amount of money on candy at the movie theatre.
First, Hunt’s Photo and Video and ILFORD are sponsoring a very cool free webcast called “Tools and Techniques For Creating Gallery Quality Fine Art Prints”. I actually really want to watch this one. Hunt’s is a highly reputable camera store in the northeast and ILFORD has some of the best papers out there. Put them together and I think anyone printing their photos will get a lot out of it. It starts at 1:00pm EDT. Here’s the link if you want to join in.
Next, there’s a new video on LightroomKillerTips.com on customizing Lightroom’s interface to make it your own (with your own graphics or logo). It’s of course free and will only take about 4 minutes to watch. Here’s the link to check it out.
