Hey gang, Brad Moore here with something a little different… Pimpy Thursday will now be known as Free Stuff Thursday! So, here’s the deal…

Scott is all about making sure his readers know about cool stuff and helping you get great deals on it. So each Thursday, not only will we be sharing the latest happenings and cool things that are going on, but we’ll be giving something away! To be entered, all you have to do is leave a comment on the post, and Scott will randomly choose a winner.

To kick things off, we’ve got a free ticket to…

Photo Pro Expo 2012
Let me just say right off the bat that this event looks crazy good, and it’s at a price that’s hard to beat… Photo Pro Expo 2012 is taking place February 2-5 in the Greater Cincinnati area and features instructors like Scott Kelby, Jerry Ghionis, Vincent Laforet, Joel Grimes, Syl Arena, and more. The regular price is $279 for the expo, but use the promo code PPESK12 when registering to sign up for just $149! And, if you stay an extra day through February 6, you can spend a full day with Jerry Ghionis for just $99!

There is a print competition on February 2, seminars February 3-5, and a big trade show on February 4-5. You can get the full schedule and register (if you’re not the lucky winner of the free ticket) at PhotoProExpo.com.

Scott (and myself) are hitting the road again at the end of the month for the Light It. Shoot It. Retouch It. Tour! On January 30, we’ll be in Austin, TX. On February 21, we’re heading to Dallas, TX, then over to Phoenix, AZ on February 22. You can get all the details and register at KelbyTraining.com.
