Do you guys remember a while back when I had concert photographer Alan Hess here as my guest blogger? He did a kick-butt article on how to shoot concerts, and it was a huge hit.

Anyway, that got me to thinking; we’re always trying to bring new really cool things to Photoshop World—stuff you wouldn’t find at any other conference, and that’s why I’m psyched to tell you that Alan himself will be teaching a pre-conference workshop at  the upcoming Photoshop World Conference in Las Vegas.

Here’s how we have the day structured:

  1. It starts in the Classroom, where Alan will show you the ins and outs, tricks of the trade, and all the inside stuff you need to know (everything from which gear to use, to shooting under ever-changing concert lighting conditions, to “getting the shot” when you’ve only got the standard three-song limit to get a killer shot).
  2. Then the class heads to a live concert shoot where they get to take the skills they just learned in the classroom and put them to use.
  3. After the shoot, it’s back into the classroom for more learning, and critiques of the work from the day’s shoot.

If you’ve ever wanted to shoot concerts, this is an incredible opportunity to learn from a seasoned pro, and actually get some hands-on experience in the process.

This optional pre-conference workshop is limited to just 40 participants, and takes place on Sept 30th (the day before the actual conference kicks off). Here’s the link to the Photoshop World site to sign up (by the way; if you’re already registered for Photoshop World, just call 1-800-738-8513 to reserve your pre-conference class spot).
