On Tuesday, the KelbyOne Flash Photography Conference 2020 kicks off (featuring the world’s #1 wizard of flash, Joe McNally), but the day before I’m doing a pre-conference workshop for people who are absolute flash photography beginners, designed to get folks up and running fast.

I’ll be literally starting from scratch, but I think what most folks will find surprising is how easy is actually is to make professional looking portraits with flash, and I’m sharing a recipe, camera settings, flash settings and all, that works every time (I hear from students all the time who tell me they’ve tried it and it worked perfectly even the first time they tried it).

Then on Tuesday it splits into two training tracks: one for beginners with me, and an intermediate / advanced track with Joe. Although the whole event is live (with Joe up in a studio in Connecticut and me down in Tampa), but we archive the entire conference for six full months so you can go rewatch any sessions, or catch any sessions you missed on either track. I’m putting the official trailer below (it’s really short — it’ll help a lot in you deciding if this is for you).

Photographers from all over have already signed up, and it’s not too late if you want to join us next week.

Here’s the link for tickets and more details.

This is incredible opportunity for anyone whose ever wanted to learn flash, or for existing flash photographers who want to take their skills to the next level fast. Hope I’ll see you online starting Monday, and then all day Tuesday and Wednesday.

Have a great weekend, everybody. Safe safe and sane, and we’ll catch you next week. :)
