Hi everybody. Hey, next week it’s my last “Shoot Like a Pro” full-day seminar of the year and I hope you’ll come out and join me for the day. Here’s the details:

Who: Me and Braddo!
What: My Shoot Like a Pro Seminar
When: Monday, December 1st (who wants to work on Monday anyway? Can I get a Woot! Woot!)
Where: The Broward County Convention Center
Why: Because you’re going to learn a whole bunch, laugh a little, and get totally energized and inspired. Perfect way to wrap up the year, and get pumped for 2015.

It’s only $99 for the full day, which includes a detailed workbook (written by yours truly), and you get a digital download of my entire “Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It” full-day seminar as a bonus (it normally sells for $69 all by itself).

Here’s the link to sign-up or just to get more info.

Hope to see you all there in Ft. Lauderdale next week! :)

Best,

-Scott

P.S. Make sure you check back here tomorrow for my 9th Annual Gonzo Holiday Gift Guide, which I actually planned to release today but as you can see, this ain’t it. Had some blog problems, but should be up and running by tomorrow, so check back then for extreme gonzoness.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to being sick, my schedule for all of Wednesday is CANCELED.  I will resume my schedule, as planned, on Thursday.

I've got a busy week coming up in New York at the big daddy of all photo shows here in the USA, and I hope at some point our paths cross in on my presentation. Here’s my schedule:

WEDNESDAY:

First, I’m moderating a panel on how technology is leading the storytelling revolution (details below) on Wednesday at 5pm (don’t worry â” the panel doesn’t go for three hours â” there’s other stuff after our talk).

Above: I did have to giggle at how they listed my title as just “Kelby” (as in Scott Kelby of Kelby) and they didn’t list any title for Jeremy. I wish they had even left his last name off, so it’s like “Cher” or “Seal.”

THURSDAY:
Canon has invited me to speak in their booth’s theater again, and it’s on one of my favorite topics: Sports Photography, and it's open to anyone at the Expo, so come on by:

> I'm on Thursday at 2:30 pm on Canon’s main stage

I’m also speaking at the Mylio booth:

> I’m on Thursday at 12:30 pm in the Mylio booth (#273) on the expo floor.

Note: if you’re wondering “what is Mylio?” — they are launching at the show, and by next week everybody will know about Mylio. Really super cool stuff!

I’ll also be speaking at the Mylio launch party on Thursday night, but I think that one is a press event.

FRIDAY:
I’m at the Canon booth on the Expo floor, talking about sports photography.

> I'm on Friday at 10:45 am on Canon’s main stage

We have a KelbyOne theater on the show floor and I’ll be doing a session called “Photo Retouching Secrets”

> I’m on Friday at 12:30 in the KelbyOne Booth: #473

Right after that I head straight for the airport to get home in time to go trick-r-treating with my daughter (this year she decided her costume would be a throwback outfit from the 1950s, so she’s got the pink poodle skirt and the whole nine yards. So cute!

Hope you all have a great Monday and I hope I get to meet you at some point, later this week. :)

Best,

-Scott

â¦we’re streaming the Webcast continuously at this link: bit.ly/1rMUkWR 

Above: That’s Matt and me, right before airtime.

Thanks to everybody who tuned in last night â” we had lots of great questions and discussions, plus RC did an amazing job handling the biggest number of giveaways we’ve never done (including two Wacom tablets, four $100 B&H Gift Cards, loads of books from Peachpit Press, A Canon Pixma Pro 1 printer, and a Canon point-and-shoot, and more). Really a great night and we got loads of great feedback from people who are now ready to make the jump to Lightroom.

Here’s the link to the free streaming rebroadcast: bit.ly/1rMUkWR 

Hope you all have an awesome Tuesday (and don’t forget, “The Grid” tomorrow at 4:00 pm LIVE).

Best,

-Scott

Greetings from freakin’ cold Minneapolis!!!
Look, I was born and raised in Florida — I’m not sure I can function in temperatures below 60° and I have a seminar to do today here, so can somebody please call the convention center and make sure they have the heat turned on? ;-)

Looking forward to meeting everybody (over 300 photographers signed up for my class here today).

How to take a big leap in your portrait photography in just 64 minutes
If you thought you could really make a big improvement in the quality of your portraiture in just a little over an hour of your time, and it was totally free, you’d do it, right? Of course! Then sit down today, or this weekend, and watch Gregory Heisler from his appearance on our “Blind Critiques” episode of “The Grid” from this past Wednesday (posted here above). He just absolutely crushed it! I’ve already seen people on social media calling it our best episode ever, and you will be amazed at the way he communicates the how’s and whys of getting great portraits — it will change the way you think and shoot. Just brilliant! I say “Gregory Heisler for President in 2016!”

Two Tickets to Paradise!
OK, how about a chance to win a free ticket (for two lucky people) to my Salt Lake City stop for my “Shoot Like a Pro” tour? I haven’t been to Salt Lake City in about 10 years, and I’m excited about going (and catching lunch the day before at Crown Burger — I still remember it — it was that good!).

Anyway, I’ve got two FREE tickets (one ticket for two separate people). Just leave a comment here and you’re entered. I'll pick the winners on Monday. Good luck and I hope to see you there on April 14th (at the seminar. Not Crown Burger).

Here’s a quick video that explains the seminar (below):

OK, I’d better head over to the Convention Center. Looking forward to see a lot of you today (bring me some hot coffee and a blanket and maybe a snow plow!). ;-)

Have a great weekend!

-Scott
Brrrrrrrrrrr!

P.S. If you haven’t signed up for the Photoshop World Conference & Expo coming up in 10 days in Atlanta, there’s still time. Here’s the link. 

I am psyched to be back at WPPI this year (the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) Conference & Expo in Las Vegas next week. Last year was my first time ever speaking there and I had a really great time, and excited to be back again and expanding my classes.

Here’s my speaking schedule: 

(1) WPPI Conference Track:

"Portrait Retouching Secrets for Photographers"
Tuesday, March 4
4:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Portrait Track

Canon Theater
I’ll be teaching sessions on Lighting and Portraiture in the Canon booth:

> Monday at 10:45 am
> Monday at 3:15 pm
> Tuesday at  11:30 am

B&H Photo Booth
I’ll also be teaching a session on “Shooting it with Just One Light” for B&H Photo at their booth/theater:

If you're at the show, I hope you'll catch one of my sessions (and if you see me wandering around, make sure you stop me and say "hi").

Hope you have a great start to your week!

Best,

-Scott

P.S. I’m up here in Atlanta today for my “Shoot Like a Pro” tour stop and I’m looking forward to meeting everybody (and making some new friends). My next tour stop is in Phoenix on March 12th.
