    Dave who?

    As humbling as it is to be here, I can’t wrap my head around the fact that I have been asked to be a guest blogger on Scott’s site. It’s an honor to have this opportunity and be the little guy standing in line next to such ‘big leaguers’ as Jeremy Cowart, Joey L, David Hobby, Drew Gardner, Zack Arias, David duChemin, Joe McNally and so many others I look up to. Needless to say I have some big shoes to fill. It goes without saying, I’m truly grateful to be here. I really am.

    Some people may ask themselves, ‘Who the heck is David Jackson?’ In fact, it’s a question I’ve been asking myself for a long time. Well, I’m just a regular dude from a small town in Wisconsin, who pays his bills with a camera, trying my best to make a living for my family. You see, I haven’t spent time on speaking circuits or been featured at international trade shows. I don’t have a timeless success story to share, a marketing tip or harrowing tale from behind the camera. I don’t have a lengthy client list riddled with celebrities and acclaimed publications. Heck, I’ve barely made a name for myself in the creative industry. Who I am however, is an emerging photographer struggling to have my voice heard over the roar of a very intimidating crowd. I’m standing in line to get on the roller coaster of my career and I need to find a seat before they’re all spoken for.

    A few years ago a friend of mine called me out;

    Want to love coming to work every day? I have three awesome jobs we're hiring for right now that could be the job of your dreams. Here's who we're looking for: (1) Photoshop Guy (or Gal) We're looking for the next Photoshop superstar to join our team (you'll have the same type of job here as Matt, Dave, RC, and Corey, except Matt would be your boss, and he screams a lot. Mostly at me, though). You'll need mad Photoshop skills, but I already know a ton of people who are incredible at Photoshop. I'm looking for more than that. I need a world class teacher, a passionate instructor, a creative genius, a gifted communicator, someone who can captivate a room with 500+ Photoshop students, and someone's whose dream is to be one of "The Photoshop Guys" (even if you're a Photoshop Girl). The…

    Just realized there's only 5 days left to register for next month's Photoshop World Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida and save $100 with the Early Bird Registration discount. Here are 10 reasons why you should be there: - 100+ classes all aimed at helping you hone your skills (link) - Learning and interacting with seasoned "pros" willing to share their knowledge (link) - Hands-on pre-conference workshops that will help kick start your PSW experience (link) - Can't-miss bonus classes to expand your knowledge (link) - Beyond the classroom opportunities to network with fellow attendees and instructors (link) - The chance to discover the hottest new products and services on the market (link) - The opportunity to have your work recognized (link) - A VIP Experience like no other (link) - PSW hotel rates that'll have you living in luxury for less! (link) -…

    This are just some of the dates from the first leg of my new nationwide "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch It" tour, but since we have these dates already locked down, I thought I'd share them. ·  Boston, MA – Thursday, March 24th ·  Minneapolis, MN – Monday, April 4th ·  Indianapolis, IN – Wednesday, April 6th ·  Chicago, IL – Thursday, April 7th Here's how each session is structured (1) I start each session with an empty stage and then I build the lighting set-up for a particular kind of lighting look from scratch, explaining everything as I go, all step-by-step. (2) Then, I actually do a portrait shoot live in each class, sharing all the camera settings, lighting settings, and exactly what you need to do to nail that type of look. (3) Finally, I take those images into Photoshop to show…

    Big, big biggitty-big news: the new season of D-Town TV (the free weekly show for DSLR shooters) is back (watch it right here), and: (a) We have an all new roomier set (b) We've got lots of new tips and techniques to share this season (c) We've got two new hosts for the show (Larry Becker, who does our Cheap Shots segment in every episode), and RC Concepcion (cool photographer and Photoshop Guy who has done a number of guest tips on the show). Matt and I will still be on D-Town TV as guests, doing tips and studio stuff and location stuff as well, but we're handing over the hosting duties to Larry and RC because (drum roll, please), Matt and I are launching a brand new weekly show called "The Grid" (starting as soon as they finish building the set, which they…

    First, I just wanted to thank everyone who posted a comment and shared your thoughts on tweaking the timing and days for my upcoming Worldwide Photo Walk. Your response was overwhelmingly Yes to moving the day to a more temperate time of year, and to expanding it to Saturday or Sunday, which will give more people a chance to participate (that's a photo of my walk last year, held in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Photo by "Fuji" Ramos). So, although this is not the official announcement, I'm looking at Saturday, October 1st, and Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 as the walk dates for this year. I have to make sure these dates don't coincide or overlap with anything that would make them a bad choice, so for now if you could just pencil it in on your calendar, and I'll firm it up once we do…
