Hey gang, Brad here with this week’s pimpy stuff. We’ve got prizes, discounts, some exciting news, and more!

If you’re debating signing up for the Real World Concert Photography pre-conference workshop with Scott Diussa and Alan Hess at Photoshop World, here’s something that might help with your decision…Someone from the class will be going home with a brand new Nikon D7000! The person who gets the best shot from the workshop will win the camera that’s been called the Camera of the Year by Engadget, PDN, and Photo Focus, and received CNET’s Editor’s Choice Award!

There are only a few spots left, so sign up now if you want a chance to win, or even if you don’t… It’s a really fun way to spend a day!

If you’re headed to the Photoshop World Conference & Expo at the end of this month (March 30 – April 1) in Orlando, Florida, here’s a quick heads up: a few more of the optional pre-conference workshops are about to sell out. Here’s where we stand as of yesterday close of business:

>> Jim Schmelzer’s “Quality of Light” workshop only has 5 seats left
>> The Real World Concert Photography workshop has only 8 spots left (and they’re giving away a new Nikon D7000 to whomever takes the best shot during the workshop—more on this on Thursday. That’s a shot from the workshop above).

Here’s the link for more details, but if you’re going to conference, I would nail down one of these pre-conferences fast before it’s too late. See you in Orlando!

(1) Do me a favor: take 2 minutes and 9 seconds to watch the quick video above. It gives you the Photoshop World experience better than I ever could.

(2) Now it’s decision time. You’ve been dying to finally make it to a Photoshop World Conference. It’s coming up at the end of next month, and know the stuff you would learn at the conference would pay for itself many times over.

If you register today, right now, you can still save $100. This could be the year. Your year to experience one of the most amazing training events in any industry.

But do it today. Don’t pay $100 more for the same seat on Monday, because you couldn’t make up your mind. That’s silly. Save the money. Be at the conference. Learn more in less time than you ever have before. Come back recharged, refocused, inspired, and faster and more productive than ever.

(3) If you sign up today, and you don’t think the conference absolutely kicks a$@, and it’s not the best money  you’ve ever spent on Photoshop training, I’ll refund your entire conference fee on the spot. Here’s the link. Make sure you come up and say hello when you see me at the conference. I want to shake your hand for making the right decision. See you in Orlando.

Hey gang, Brad here with this week’s pimpy!  Got a few important posts today, so let’s get started:

Why You Should Bring Your Camera To PSW Orlando
First off, MAKE SURE you bring your camera to Photoshop World next month!  Westcott will once again be setting up their “shooting stations” which feature models in various setups lit with Westcott Spiderlites.

It was a huge hit in Vegas, and I’m sure they’ll take it up a notch in Orlando.  The LA Times even did a write-up about them in Vegas!

Early Bird Special Ending TOMORROW!
If you haven’t registered for Photoshop World yet, today and tomorrow are your last chances to save $100! Head on over to and register now!

While you’re registering, make sure you grab your After Hours Party ticket for BB King’s on Thursday Night and upgrade to a Pro Pass.

There are also a few spots left in some of the pre-conference workshops, including Real World Concert Photography, HDR Crash Course, Photoshop for Beginners, Quality of Light In Depth, The Art of Contemporary Painting in CS5, and Photoshop Channels & Masks.

And make sure you book your room at the Rosen Centre Hotel so you can stay where the instructors stay! The cutoff day for the special rate is March 7, or as soon as all the rooms are gone.

That’s it for Photoshop World news today, but there’s more pimpy coming your way! Read on…

Just realized there’s only 5 days left to register for next month’s Photoshop World Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida and save $100 with the Early Bird Registration discount.

Here are 10 reasons why you should be there:

– 100+ classes all aimed at helping you hone your skills (link)

– Learning and interacting with seasoned “pros” willing to share their knowledge (link)

– Hands-on pre-conference workshops that will help kick start your PSW experience (link)

– Can’t-miss bonus classes to expand your knowledge (link)

– Beyond the classroom opportunities to network with fellow attendees and instructors (link)

– The chance to discover the hottest new products and services on the market (link)

– The opportunity to have your work recognized (link)

– PSW hotel rates that’ll have you living in luxury for less! (link)

– The Conference is open to everyone, and if you’re not already a NAPP member, a full one-year membership is included in your full conference pass. (link)

I hope I’ll get to shake your hand, and see you in my class sessions in Orlando next month. Ask anyone who has been to Photoshop World—it’s a career changing experience wrapped inside an awful lot of fun (we have a “Fashion” theme this year. That’s all I’m sayin’).

Remember to save that $100 bucks. Here’s the link to sign up. See you in Orlando!
