Light It. Shoot It. Retouch It. LIVE! in London
This is it… Scott Kelby’s last ever, Light It. Shoot It. Retouch It. LIVE! seminar in the world. Come be part of this once-in-a-lifetime, history-making event! Think of the stories you’ll have to tell your children… “There I was, just mere yards away from him, watching Scott Kelby explain the importance of using eggcrate grids with strip banks, and, all at once… it… just… CLICKED.” ;-)

Okay, seriously though, we would be delighted for you to come spend the day with us in Islington, London on Saturday April 28. We’ve had tons of great feedback from attendees, and it’s been a really fun tour to do. We hope you’ll join us for the finale of this highly informative, yet fun and entertaining tour!
