Hi Gang: I know a lot of you are heading to Photoshop World in Washington, DC at the end of this month (It's kicks off on the 24th), and I was hoping you might consider checking out some of the sessions I'm teaching at the conference. (by the way ---- those shots above are from previous Photoshop Worlds). (1) Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it This is a mini-version of my live tour, but I didn't want to do the same lighting set-ups that I do on the tour (since a lot of you have seen the tour live), so I'm doing three different looks using just one single light; I'll be doing the shoot live on stage (as always), and then I'll take one or two of those images and take you through the entire start-to-finish retouch. (2) Photoshop for Travel Photographers When I…


Tomorrow is the LAST DAY TO SAVE $100 on Photoshop World Washington DC registration! The conference is March 24-26, which is just around the corner. Don't wait around and spend more money next week. You can put that $100 toward collecting snow globes with all the monuments and government buildings! While you're at registering, go ahead and book your hotel room as well! The travel page has direct links to hotel websites that automatically apply the Photoshop World discounted room rate, so make sure you take advantage of those links.


I’m going to be giving away a FREE full-conference pass to next month’s Photoshop World Conference & Expo in Washington DC to some lucky commenter here today, but before you rush down and enter (just leave a comment here of any sort, and you’re entered), watch this short video (only 1 min: 31 seconds), to get psyched up for it. It pretty much shows you why you gotta be there (and why you should enter today to see if you win the free ticket!).

We’re going to have an all-time record-breaking attendance for our East Coast show, and you’re invited to be there when Joe McNally, Dave Black, Moose Peterson, Jeremy Cowart, Joel Grimes, Ben Willmore, Jay Maisel, along with many of the best known names in the business (like Bert Monroy, Vincent Versace, David Ziser, Calvin Hollywood, Gregory Heisler, and John Paul Caponigro) and of course “The Photoshop Guys” (Matt Kloskowski, RC Concepcion, Pete Collins, Dave Cross, Cory Barker, Cliff Mautner, and me),take the stage to teach you our very latest techniques.

PLUS: Learn directly from Adobe, as their own gurus will teaching sessions, including Terry White, Julieanne Kost, Russell Brown, and Photoshop Senior Product Manager Bryan Hughes.

If you’re planning on going (ya know, in case you don’t win the ticket), just remember: there’s only FIVE days left to save $100 on the Early Bird registration, so sign up now, and I’ll see you at the world’s largest Photoshop and photography event: The Photoshop World Conference & Expo, March 24-26, 2012 in Washington DC. Here’s the link with more details and how to sign up. 

I didn't think we could top Orlando, but thanks to an incredibly energized crowd in Vegas, I think they took it over the top. Amazing energy the whole week, and I couldn't walk 2 feet without someone stopping me to tell me this was our best show ever. Sometimes, it's just a vibe in the air, or the fact that with the economy like it is, everybody needed to get away and get totally immersed in learning and creativity and that's exactly what they did. Here's my take on the show (photos by official PSW photographers Brad Moore, Jim Sykes, and Josh Bradley): Totally Cracked Me Up I sat down at the instructor table for my "Photoshop for Travel Photographers" class, and I'm setting up my laptop when I hear a text message alert on my phone. It says "I'm in this class. Make…

What a fantastic week!!! I heard it again and again for attendees who've been to multiple Photoshop World's in the past---this was the best one yet!!! It was a total attendance record breaker for us, with big crowds showing up for the two days the expo was open to the public, and with new products being introduced at the show from Adobe, OnOne software, and Nik Software (among others) the excitement on the show floor was a full blast! Lots to share (tomorrow), but in the meantime, here are some images from the week that was (Photos by official PSW photographers Brad Moore, Jim Sykes, and Josh Bradley). Thanks to all the instructors, attendees, vendors, and staff who all came together for a very special event. Can't wait to our next Photoshop World---the first time ever in Washington D.C. in the spring. (Above: The…
