Scott Kelby Workshop – BTS from Dave Cross on Vimeo.

Last week, I had the opportunity to do something I rarely get to do; an intimate hands-on class where my students and I get to shoot and retouch alongside each other all day long. Dave Cross (Canadian Photoshop Ninja) invited me to teach this one-day workshop at his new studios just outside Tampa, Florida, and I have to say, it was a really wonderful experience.

I was following Joel Grimes, who had just had his workshop at Dave’s place the week before (if I hadn’t been in Canada, I would have paid to be in Joel’s class myself), and I have to say—Dave’s studios is really set up perfectly for this type of intimate workshop; with a good-sized fully-equiped studio, a really comfortable set-up for both the students and instructors, and he even brought in a yummy lunch for everybody.

Dave put together the “behind-the-scenes” video you see above, and I thought I’d share it with you guys to give you a glimpse into the day (I had such a great group of students that day. Totally engaged, totally into, and they made some totally awesome images!).

Dave’s got some incredible workshops coming up (including some world class wedding photography instructors), so if you want to learn up close and personal, visit Dave’s site  (Here’s the link).

Thanks Dave for having, and being such a gracious host to me and my students. Your place rocks!
