    I recently co-taught a Landscape/Adventure Sports workshop out in Moab, Utah with famous adventure photographer Tom Bol (and just all around nice guy). The class was great, the weather was great and we had a blast. But on the way back I started thinking about some lessons I've learned along these trips so I figured I'd share them with you today. NOTE: Click on the photos to see them larger Lesson 1 - Get up earlier than you think The formula is simple. Get there 1 hour before sunrise. Plain and simple. You never know what snags you'll hit (road blocks, detours, equipment). What happens if you're on your way and you realize you forgot a lens or your tripod. If you have to turn around you're screwed - you've missed sunrise because you left no extra time. But there's another big reason to…

    For quite a few years now at my live seminars I’ve been saying that one of the challenges with learning new techniques in Photoshop is that we are creatures of habit. We tend to do things the way we always have, because, well, we just do. In an effort to figure out how to our Photoshop habits are formed I went looking for more information on habits, and found the following (interestingly enough on a blog by Ian Newby-Clark called “Creatures of Habit”). “As creatures, we have needs. We need to eat, and so we eat. As rather intelligent and social creatures, we like to chat with one another, and so we do. We take turns and finish our conversations gracefully. And there are dozens and dozens more behaviors that are just as complicated, if not more so. How on Earth do we get…

    We all like Scott's Q&A posts right? You know, the ones where he asks questions to himself? Well I thought it'd be cool to do a Scott Kelby styled Q&A post about Scott himself. Here goes: (Warning - My jokes are much worse! ;)) Q. Come on Matt, you're not as funny a guy as Scott is. Do you really think you'll be able to pull off a Scott Kelby-styled Q&A? A. (Cat sound!). Hey! Starting off by insulting me won't get you anywhere. You're probably right though, but I'm gonna give it a try anyway. Q. OK, I'll give you a shot and continue reading. A. That's not a question, but thanks - you're all heart. Q. So is Scott really as funny in person as he is on the blog and on your podcast? A. Absofreakinlutely! Actually I think he's funnier. Whenever…

    Rack of Lamb Photo by Scott Kelby // Camera Photo by Brad Moore [Note: This is a slightly edited recent post from my blog. Scott liked it and suggested I share it here as well!] If you've been in the photography business very long, you know it's about way more than just being able to work behind the camera. There are tons of moving parts that you have to maintain in order to be successful. Lately I've been watching Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. In this show, Chef Gordon Ramsay (also of Hell's Kitchen fame) goes into failing restaurants and helps turn them around. After watching a few episodes, it's easy to pick up on the key things that make for a successful restaurant. But these things aren't just what make restaurants successful, they're what make businesses successful. And many of these things can easily…

    Thanks to Scott and Brad for inviting me to write a post on this blog. It's an honor to share the stage with so many talented photographers. On my own blog, I normally write about the nuts and bolts of each photo shoot. For this special post, I'd like to share the key to making a living in this crazy business of photography: You need to separate yourself from the pack. But how do you do that? I've realized that there are a few things I consistently do when preparing for a shoot. 1) If I see a group of photographers standing together, I run the other direction. At most of the events I cover, there are a lot of other photographers. The wire services and local newspaper shooters always do a great job covering the event. So what can I bring to the…

    Hi everybody: I'm going to be doing a lot of catching up these next few weeks, and to do that I'm going to need to take a little break from writing the blog here every day. Of course, I wouldn't leave you out in the cold, so I've asked the crew here to pitch in and help me out by writing daily posts for you guys starting here on Thursday. Of course, each Wednesday we'll have our guest blogger (and tomorrow we have a really great one), and then you'll be hearing from Matt, Dave, Corey, RC, and Brad (and anybody else I can scam into taking a day for me). They won't be doing "Guest Blogs" per se (I don't want to put that kind of pressure on them) so they'll be doing the same type of news and commentary stuff I do…
