Scott Kelby Workshop – BTS from Dave Cross on Vimeo.

Last week, I had the opportunity to do something I rarely get to do; an intimate hands-on class where my students and I get to shoot and retouch alongside each other all day long. Dave Cross (Canadian Photoshop Ninja) invited me to teach this one-day workshop at his new studios just outside Tampa, Florida, and I have to say, it was a really wonderful experience.

I was following Joel Grimes, who had just had his workshop at Dave’s place the week before (if I hadn’t been in Canada, I would have paid to be in Joel’s class myself), and I have to say—Dave’s studios is really set up perfectly for this type of intimate workshop; with a good-sized fully-equiped studio, a really comfortable set-up for both the students and instructors, and he even brought in a yummy lunch for everybody.

Dave put together the “behind-the-scenes” video you see above, and I thought I’d share it with you guys to give you a glimpse into the day (I had such a great group of students that day. Totally engaged, totally into, and they made some totally awesome images!).

Dave’s got some incredible workshops coming up (including some world class wedding photography instructors), so if you want to learn up close and personal, visit Dave’s site  (Here’s the link).

Thanks Dave for having, and being such a gracious host to me and my students. Your place rocks!

  3. Scott and Dave, thank you for a perfect workshop experience. It was truly perfect! I feel truly blessed for this incredible opportunity to be in a Scott Kelby small group workshop! It was incredible! It exceeded all my expectations–which were high–Scott Kelby–workshop! We had the opportunity to shoot 3 models in various sets, and then retouch right after. Perfect!

    Thanks again!

  4. Wow, looked like an awesome workshop, wish I could have been there! One quick thing, where it says “(Here’s the link)” there is no link.

  5. Hey Scott, What was the fan you guys were using ? I’ve been looking for a small powerful fan for shoots but they are all pretty big and that looks like it would just be the treat :)

  8. It was a great class. Dave’s studio is perfect. Has everything you need and more. Very comfortable, great artwork all around and a very creepy mannequin that was right next to my seat.

    We had a great group of people attending the class, everyone got their shots without holding up the others and we actually finished all of the scenarios.

  9. Expected the famous Matt high kick in the video ;)
