Hi Gang: Happy Monday. It's President's Day here in the US, which is a holiday we love because a lot of folks have the day off and that's pretty much all we know about this holiday (but don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, right?). Anyway, here's what's up:
> I'm back, baby!
My wife and I snuck off Thursday for a Valentine's Weekend Getaway to Portland, Oregon with our friends Moose and Sharon Peterson. Had a total blast, and even had some pretty good weather the whole time (the shot above is from this weekend, but I shot the same lighthouse 5-years ago but on a really gray overcast day). Lots more about this trip later, but I've gotta hit the sack, so hit me up on social for more photos and stories.
> I posted #9 of "What I'd Tell a New Lightroom User"
If you've been following my series, I posted the latest one over at LightroomKillerTips.com – here's the link if you have a sec.
> Thanks for the feedback on "The Lightroom Show"
Just a shout out to everybody who posted such kind comments here on Friday after the debut of our new weekly show. Thanks so much for all the support and kind words. The next episode comes out this Friday. If you missed the premiere episode last week, here’s the link.
> Sacramento, here I come!
The final tour stop of my "Shoot Like a Pro" seminar is coming up next month (Monday, March 9th) in Sacarmento (come join me for the day â” here's the link).
Then in April I'm launching a totally new from the ground up full-day seminar called "Shoot Like a Pro: Reloaded" and I'll have tour dates shortly, but my first two stops are Salt Lake City and Los Angeles (both in April).
> Rick Sammon and my "Guitar Wall"
Last week Rick and his wife Susan stopped by our new offices, and Susan got this shot of me and Rick posing in front of the left wall of my office, which is a bunch of guitars (I'm holding a Parker Maxx Fly in the photo you see here, but I just got in a Paul Reed Smith SE Custom 24 right before I left for Portland. Hardly even had a time to play it. Anyway, thought I'd share this shot to wrap up this quick look at what's going on this sunny warm Monday here in Florida.
Hope you all have a great day. We'll catch you here tomorrow. :)
P.S. In case you missed it, the incredible Joel Grimes is launching a new full-day seminar tour with us, called “The Photographers Creative Revolution” tour. His first stop is Indianapolis on Feb 23rd, then he’s on to Washington DC on March 25th. Here’s the link with details.
