If you’re in the Chicagoland area, I’m bringing my “Photoshop CS4 for Digital Photographers Tour” to town, next Friday (April 9th) and I hope you can join us.

There are nearly 500 photographers already signed-up for the one-day workshop, but I’m saving a seat for you, so I hope you’ll come and join me for a fun day of learning. Here’s the link with all the details.

If you read the blog, and you’re going, make sure you stop me and say hi (I always get a kick out of meeting people who read the blog). Hope to see you in person there!


Thanks to the nearly 800 photographers who came out to spend the day with me in Washington DC yesterday for my “Photoshop CS4 for Digital Photographers Tour.”


The DC crowd is just absolutely a blast to present to, and I had such a fun time teaching the class, and meeting lots of new people. Jeff Revell stopped by the seminar, as did Rob from Towner Jones photography (Got an update from Rob on the final numbers for the Worldwide PhotoWalk T-Shirts sales that he coordinated, and it’s amazing—$7,000+ raised for the Springs of Hope Orphanage just from those t-shirt sales).


Anyway, I had such a wonderful time, and I hope you guys did, too. Thanks for hospitality and hope to see you guys again soon!


Just a quick update on where I’ll be teaching seminars and stuff:

(1) Washington D.C. on this coming Monday (at the Washington Convention Center) for my “Photoshop for Digital Photographers Tour.” There are only about 40-something seats left at this point. I hope you snag one of them! Here’s the link.

(2) I’ll be giving the Keynote and teaching both Photoshop and Lightroom classes at Professional Imaging 2010 in the Netherlands week after next, March 7th and 8th in Utrecht (just outside Amsterdam). You can get all the details (and watch a little intro video from me) right here.

(3) I’m teaching three classes, and hosting the Keynote at the Photoshop World Conference & Expo coming up in Orlando, March 24-26, 2010. Here’s the link. I’m also teaching a lighting session in the Bogen Imaging booth on the show floor as well (details on exactly when coming soon).

(4) I’m taking my Photoshop for Photographers Tour to Chicago on April 9th, and then on to Atlanta on May 28th. Here are the details.

Hope to see you at one or more of these upcoming classes. :)


OK, it was really just supposed to be just Dave and Corey splitting the day, but they were kind enough to invite me to do one of my favorite parts of the day—the session on Typography and Designing with Type, so now it’s the three of us.

The seminar is coming up on Monday, February 22nd at the Tampa Convention Center, and if you haven’t had a chance to catch the tour yet, it is just one of those days that really opens your eyes to the power of Photoshop, and all the cool stuff you can do—stuff that really looks hard, but is actually easy once you know the secrets.

It’s not too late to register—follow this link, where you’ll find out the full class schedule, and how to reserve your seat (It’s only $99, or $79 if you’re a NAPP member) for a day of nothing but the latest Photoshop special effects (these are real commercial effects—the same ones you see in print, on the Web, in ads, on TV, and in Hollywood—-techniques you can really use in your own everyday work). I hope Dave, Corey, and I will see you there!





A big thanks to everybody who joined me for the Dallas stop on my “Photoshop CS4 for Digital Photographers” tour. We had a blast that day, and saw lots of old friends (Mike, Big Daddy Don, Austin Mann, and even Frank Cricchio was there), and as always, made a few new ones, too! (photos above by Dave Gales and Jeff Leimbach)

My next seminar stop with this tour is in Washington D.C. on Monday, March 1st, and I hope you can join me there, because I’ve got some way cool stuff to share with you. Here’s the link with all the details. See you in D.C.!


There’s a bunch of training news that’s been stacking up, so I’ll quickly get right through it all in one post:

(1) My Dallas Seminar is Sold Out!
We have nearly 700 photographers registered for my “Photoshop for Photographers” seminar in Dallas tomorrow, so we are sold out (even after expanding the room). I’m really looking forward to seeing everybody, and if you read this blog, make sure you stop by and say hi!

(2) My Next Tour Stop: Washington DC on Monday, March 1st
I love DC (plus I get to hang out with Jeff Revell), and I’ll be there 1st of March with my seminar, so I hope you’ll come and spend the day with me. I’d sign up early, and reserve your seat. Here’s the link.

(3) Jim Smelzer’s “Senior Portraits Outdoors” Class Now Online
Jim’s other two classes on Senior Portraiture have just absolutely kicked butt, and I’m thrilled to let you know we just posted his new one this week (By the way—we post a new class every week now at Kelby Training Online). Here’s the link to his class (Jim is an absolutely fantastic teacher, and people are just lovin’ his stuff!).

(4) I’m Teaching At Professional Imaging 2010 in the Netherlands
I’m heading to Holland again, and I can’t wait! This time it’s to do the Keynote presentation, and a series of classes at the Professional Imaging 2010 event, Sponsored by Adobe, at the Nieuwegeins Business Center, Nieuwegein, Utrecht, NL on March 7-9, 2010. Here’s the link with details about the conference (by the way: I presented there a few years ago, and this is without a doubt one of the best run, best attended events I’ve ever been to anywhere!!!!).

(5) Want a kick-butt Lightroom Production Tip?
Although I’m doing a class at Photoshop World called “Lightroom Killer Tips” I came up with this tip after I finished the workbook for the class, so I did it on this week’s episode of Photoshop User TV. It’s really handy (hey, even Matt had to comment on it), so if you’ve got a sec, check out this week’s episode right here.

(6) Our “Photoshop 20th Anniversary Party is Sold Out”
We had seating for over a thousand people for the Photoshop Party of the Year, but those seats are now long gone as we’re sold out in advance. However, we’re looking at all sorts of ways to webcast, simulcast, podcast, and everything cast the event so no matter where you are in the world, you can join in the fun (and the tips), and it should be an incredible night, celebrating an amazing milestone, and I’ll have more details soon, but for now, keep the evening of Feb. 18th free, cause we’re going party like it’s….wait…that’s doesn’t work. Well, you know what I meant.

That’s it for now. Lots more to share soon. Hope to see you in person at one of these events, or online! :)
