Here’s a quick look at what’s up on this glorious Monday in April:
SmugMug buys Flickr (What!!??!!)
I don’t know exactly what they’re going to call it, but I’m just glad they did it. Just in case you missed it this weekend – the folks at SmugMug bought Flickr. That’s right! Whoo Hoo!! There’s hope for Flickr at last! SmugMug is a great company, and a class act in our industry, and I can’t wait to see what they do with Flickr — one whose future just got a whole lot brighter. Congrats to the SmugMug crew. Well done, lads! :)
Our first instructor gallery show was a hit!
We were honored to feature KelbyOne instructor Moose Peterson for a solo exhibition in ‘The Gallery at KelbyOne’ last Friday night, and people were absolutely LOVING his aviation images (Moose, who is a print master himself, even gave a big shoutout to the folks at Bay Photo Lab for their big beautiful prints, displayed in the gallery using their Xpozer system). It was such a fun night, and Moose’s talk (broadcast live) afterward was funny, insightful, and often touching. We’ll be re-broadcasting the event, free to everyone, streamed on my Facebook page.
Who: Moose Peterson, with host Larry Becker
What: A talk with Moose about his aviation photography
Where: My Facebook page
When: Tuesday, at 2PM ET
Hope you can tune in – you’ll dig it big time.

How to be the first to get my new Lightroom Classic Book (spoiler alert: it’s already on-press)
It’s my biggest update to the book yet and has all the new features from the just-released update (including all the new Profile stuff). You can get yours first by pre-ordering right now from Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
Spend the day with me in Cincinnati / Covington next week, or Hartford the week after
I’m teaching my full-day Lightroom seminar (it’s just $99 for the full day) and I want you to come out and spend the day with me learning Lightroom. Lots of fun, useful, practical stuff to share, so come on out. Details and tickets here.
Don’t forget Travel Tuesdays with Dave, here tomorrow.
Here’s wishing you all an absolutely rocking week!
P.S. I finally (finally!) got around to updating my gear page here on the blog – here’s the link if you’ve got a sec.
Thanks, Scott. I really enjoyed looking through your gear page. I now have a few more things on my wish list.
I also noticed you labeled it a Canon EOS 5DS R, but the image look exactly like my Canon EOS 7D Mark II. :-) Only pointing it out because I thought you me want to fix it.
Thanks for updating your gear page, Scott! I can finally sleep at night! ;-)
I would come to see you in Hartford, but it’s a bit of a drive for me from the Boston area. You’ll have to wait until Orlando to see my smiling face again!
