Lots of cool stuff to share today, about some great folks, and friends of the blog:

> First, my buddy, and aviation photographer, Jose Ramos (better known by his call sign “Fuji”), just got a two-page spread (shown above) featuring his photography, including air-to-air shots, in the upcoming Winter issue of “Hook Magazine.” Congrats Jose! (Disco, out).

> You guys who read this blog regularly are already familiar with the incredible automotive photography of UK-based photographer Tim Wallace, and as much as we so know he’s among the world’s best, it’s great to see him getting some of the public accolades he so richly deserves, as Tim recently won the Professional Advertising Photographer of the Year Award for 2010. A big congrats to Tim!!! Here’s the link.

> Last week I ran a short video by our friend Glyn Dewis on a look back at his photography shoots for 2010 (link), and this week I ran across an interview with Glyn that’s really a great read, and there’s lot of great photos as well. It’s over at the BrandonJFX blog (link). If you’ve got a moment, check it out.

> This week we have German retoucher, total Photoshop shark, and all around cool-guy, Calvin Hollywood here at the Kelby Training Studios down in Florida. Calvin’s here taping a series of Photoshop classes he’s doing for Kelby Training Online. He’s doing some really amazing stuff (he’s here with a studio lighting wizard from Germany, and the two of them work together as a team, staging the shots (all live for the cameras), then Calvin takes over with the retouch. Amazing stuff! We had Calvin as a guest on Photoshop User TV as well, so keep an eye out—he may be on this week’s show, or if not, next week’s for sure.

That’s it from here; have a great Tuesday everybody!
