I hope you’ll come and spend the day with me in New York on Monday learning all the cool new stuff in Lightroom 3. I just kicked the tour off in Ft. Lauderdale on Monday (had over 400 photographers there for the day, and we had a blast).

I can’t tell you how many people came up to me during the day, who didn’t have Lightroom at all yet, but were just blown away by what it could do. It’s really the kind of day that can change everything for your workflow, so I hope you can make it if you’re up that way.

It’s only $99 for the full day of training (including my step-by-step workbook), or just $79 if you’re a NAPP member. Here’s the link with all the details. Hope I’ll get to see you in person at the Javits Center on Monday. It’s gonna rock!

P.S. Don’t forget Matt is Boston on Friday. Use the same link above and see Matty K live!

Hey gang, Brad here with a few updates on books, events, and all sorts of stuff!

If you purchase through that link, you’ll also get a free Killer Presets CD from Matt Kloskowski! We haven’t gotten our copies just yet, but we’re expecting them ANY DAY, so order now!
  • Speaking of Lightroom, make sure you check out the dates for the Lightroom Live Tour. Scott’s coming to Fort Lauderdale and New York, and Matt’s coming to Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco all this month!
  • If you are a NAPP member, you will definitely want to check out the LIVE Members Only Webinar tomorrow, July 9th from 3:00-4:00 pm Eastern.  Matt, Dave, Corey, and RC will all be hanging out and answering your questions live, right on the spot. Nothing pre-planned, no mapped out lessons. Just you and them, getting through as many questions as they can in an hour!  All the info (and live feed when it happens), right here.
  • If you haven’t already signed up for Photoshop World Las Vegas, you can get registered right here.  Also, we have the best room rate we’ve ever had at Mandalay Bay at only $129 per night!
  • Have you checked out KelbyTraining.com lately? We’re adding new classes every week, including Moose Peterson’s “Nature Photography – Shorebirds,” RC Concepcion’s “Lightroom 3 for the Web,” Dan Margulis’ “There Are No Bad Originals,” and Matt Kloskowski’s “Lightroom 3 In Depth, Part 3 – Printing and Showing Off Your Photos.” Also, keep an eye out for upcoming classes from adventure photographer Tom Bol!

That’s it for today, and make sure you check out today’s guest blog from celebrity and fashion photographer John Wright!

Here’s a quick update on what’s going on with me and the crew here:

Killer Deal on Hotel Rooms for Photoshop World Vegas
The Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, right on the Vegas strip, has been the home for Photoshop World since we first brought the convention to Las Vegas years ago (and it’s connected directly to the convention center), but this year we were able to negotiate our best deal on hotel rooms, so you can stay right on property (at the same place, me and all the instructors and NAPP staff will be staying) for only $129 a night. Plus, this year they’re throwing in the “Resort Package” free (reg. $60), which includes everything from free in-room wireless Internet to free bottled water, and a whole bunch more. Here’s the link to snag your rooms now at this special rate, cause once our room deal is sold out, it’s gone! Hope to see you at the Mandalay Bay.

RC’s Taking Lightroom 3 Users to the Web
We released a new online class last week at KelbyTraining.com (new classes go up every week) from photographer and Web guru RC Concepcion, called “Lightroom 3 for the Web.” RC knows this stuff inside and out, and if you want to get your images from your computer to the Web using Lighroom, RC’s your man.  Here’s the link with more details.

Quick Photo Walk Update
Last year, we had 917 walks around the world, and we’re getting very close to breaking that number with about a month still to go, as we now have 878 walks and over 17,500 registered walkers. This is going to be big! If you haven’t signed up for a walk, search to see if there’s one in a city near you, right here.

I Gave the Wrong Date for my Lightroom 3 Live Tour in New York
I mentioned during the Photoshop CS5 Summit last week that I’d be back in New York City with my Lightroom Tour on July 12th, but I was totally wrong. That’s the day I’ll be kicking off the tour in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (that’s just a few weeks from now). I actually be in New York on Monday, July 19th. Sorry for the confusion, but I was…well…confused. ;-)  Here’s the link for more info (for either city). Hey, don’t forget, Matt is taking the tour out as well, and he’ll be in Boston on Friday, July 18th; LA on July 21st, and San Francisco on the 23rd.

Tomorrow’s Guest Blog is gonna kick butt!
I cannot wait for tomorrow’s Guest Blog, as it’s from Adventure Photographer Tom Bol. I met Tom at the Photo Plus Expo last year, and saw part of his presentation about location lighting over at the Elinchrom booth, and his stuff just kicks butt (Matt just did a workshop with Tom out in Moab, and Matt couldn’t say enough great things about him. Also, Tom just finished taping some on location adventure photography online classes for Kelby Training.com, which will be going live very soon—-I’ll let you know when). Make sure you check back here tomorrow to catch his guest blog. Can’t wait!!!!

That’s it for today, my friends
That’s a quick update on what’s going on here (there’s actually more, but that’s all I can say right now). Anyway, gotta run. Got a crazy busy day (but it’s all good!). Don’t forget Tom tomorrow (it’s gonna rock!). Have a good one!

When I announced my new Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers (shown above), I listed where you could pre-order the book, but at that time Amazon.com didn’t have it available yet, so I wanted to let you guys know that not only is it available now for pre-order, but I expect to have the first copies any day now (it’s just about off press, so it won’t be long now).

Here’s the link to preorder yours today from Amazon.com (Note: if you didn’t get the scoop on the new book, I did a quick video all about what’s different in this new major update to the book. Here’s the link to that video).

Well, it’s time to take the new show on the road! :-)  Today I’m officially announcing the kick off of my Lightroom 3 Live! Tour, and two more cities: Here’s the kick-off leg:

  • Monday, July 12th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
  • Friday, July 16th Matt Kloskowski will take the tour to Boston, MA
  • Monday, July 19th I’m back with the tour in New York City

We’ve totally updated the tour to take advantage of Lightroom 3’s new features, and we’ve tweaked the whole tour to make your Lightroom workflow faster, easier and more fun than than ever.

I absolutely love teaching Lightroom live, because as an instructor you can literally see the light bulb going on with photographers who’ve been doing things the hard way, and once they see Lightroom live, they realize that not only is this the future, but they can see firsthand how it’s going to change and improve their workflow. It seriously is just a blast to teach.

Plus, Lightroom 3 fixes so many things that used to drive me (you, us, we) crazy, that I can’t wait to get out there and show off all the enhancements, fixes, and just smart stuff they added.

Here’s the link to sign up for one of those three cities (a bunch more cities to be announced real soon as Matt and I take the tour on the road).

I’m happy to announce that my “Lightroom 3 book for Digital Photographers” is already on press, and should be in bookstores very soon, but one of the things people ask most is “What’s different in your new book, from the old Lightroom 2 book?” (which is the world’s #1 bestselling book on Lightroom).

Of course, I included all the new important Lightroom 3 features in the major update of the book, but I also added some other really important things to take the new version of this book to a whole new level. I did a short video (below) with all the new stuff, and I hope you’ll take just a moment and check it out.

You can pre-order the book, and be among the first to get yours, at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, KelbyTraining.com, or wherever cool Lightroom books are sold.
