Today, starting at 10:00 am ET and running until 5:00 pm at the top of every hour we’re doing LIVE 10-minute screaming deal Webcast where we convinced one of our partners to offer an insane discount but just for one-hour (and ONLY1-hour) but you’ve got to watch to get the Discount code.
Here are the details:

Of course, our KelbyOnePro Membership deal is running all day today, too, so for goodness sake don’t forget about that mega-deal!

Lots of great stuff for photographers, from Stocking Stuffers to gifts that will totally blow their minds! Here’s the link.
OK, that’s the Cyber Monday scoop! The deals are here, but only for today!
…it was just incredible (truly one of the best ever), and I’ve got a bunch of pictures and stories to share but I couldn’t get them ready in time to post them today. I’ll have ’em together pretty soon and post a link to them here, but for now…I’ve pretty much got nuthin.
Over on my other blog, Lightroom Killer Tips, I have a pretty cool skin smoothing technique I picked up from Frank Doorhof when I was at the conference, and it uses the new Texture slider along with two other sliders to give the best skin smoothing I’ve seen in Lightroom yet. Here’s a link to that post.
Dave Williams at Photoshop World
Dave was teaching at Photoshop World for the first time, and I stuck my head into his travel photography class and it was absolutely packed. From all accounts, Dave rocked it, and I was thrilled to see him up on that stage! Congrats Dave. Don’t forget to catch his column tomorrow here on the blog. :)
Wednesday I’m off to Boston for my seminar there Thursday, and then Friday I’ll be in Philadelphia for my new “Ultimate Photography Crash Course” seminar. If you’re in either one of those cities this week, come out and spend the day with me. Tickets and details here.
Photoshop World is coming up soon, and with two events this year it’s set to be amazing! I’ve said of Photoshop World before: –
You should never underestimate the power of networking provided by Photoshop World, as well as the learning, inspiration, motivation, and everything else on offer! You never know who you might be talking to and everyone there is your friend.
Dave, last year
It’s because of the people at KelbyOne and Photoshop World that I have gotten where I am today. I started my journey as a travel photographer a few years ago and developed my skills as a writer and instructor as well, partly due to what I’ve learned and experienced at Photoshop world. I’m proud to be a KelbyOne instructor, a writer for Photoshop User magazine, the editor of Layers Magazine, and the dude who writes for you every Tuesday for #TravelTuesday on ScottKelby.com.
Photoshop World is the best place in the industry to make and maintain connections, bar none. It’s funny because when you learn to write for editorial there are a whole bunch of rules, one of which is that when you want to emphasise something you put it in italics—you don’t make it bold and underline it, but I just can’t make this point strongly enough!
Photoshop World is much, much more than a conference! Aside from the fact that you can attend a ton of classes on a range of tracks led by the cream of the crop from the creative industry. Here’s the real deal, let’s go!
First off, you know all those names you see on the KelbyOne Facebook Page? The members’ images shared on the KelbyOne Instagram feed? The names you hear mentioned when the comments are read out during The Grid? The names you see commenting on your Instagram posts because you’re both members of the KelbyOne community? You get to put faces to those names!
So, what else?! I mean, surely life-long friendships alone are a pretty good reason to look forward to the other side of Photoshop World, but what else?
The Partner Pavilion’s pretty sweet. You know that there’s a huge gathering of awesome creatives showing their wares there too, right? So, the likes of B&H Photo and Platypod Tripods are joined by so many other awesome companies that we all love right in one place, waiting to meet you too! That’s a pretty “mainstream” thing about Photoshop World though, and that’s not the point of this post. It’s meant to be the other things!
And then there are all the extra-curricular activities! There is a whole load of things going on in the evenings. When you hear about a party being announced or “tickets being released tomorrow morning” or anything like that, jump on it!
So, there’s all that, there’s the t-shirt toss, there’s the shipment of the biggest pile of Krispy Kreme donuts you’ve ever seen at Midnight Madness, and I feel like I’m laying down a sales pitch now, but there’s good reason for that—Photoshop World is the creative event of all creative events!
Live events, in general, provide unique learning and career building opportunities that aren’t matched anywhere else. Taking a break from your day job, particularly when in our creative and ever-evolving industry, to sharpen your skills and pick up new tips and techniques will always make us more effective and efficient. Not only is it an opportunity to meet your business idols, making connections can lead to finding your next mentor and your chances of learning are greatly improved among an actively engaged and like-minded crowd. Hands-on demos and workshops afford an opportunity to ask the questions you want to ask. Breaking out of your comfort zone, albeit in comfortable surrounds, engages different parts of our minds and that’s exactly what we sometimes need to break out of old ways of thinking and step into new ones. There are just so many reasons to attend Photoshop World, which I have personally experienced and benefited from, that I could make this list last forever, but ultimately, if you want to improve yourself, invest in yourself at Photoshop World!
It’s the most exciting, fun, engaging thing I get to do all year — I love getting to meet everybody, and the whole event is a blast from start to finish. Teaching some cool sessions — can’t wait to share ’em with you.
“The Essence of Paris” Travel Photography Workshop
This is location travel photography workshop, taught with my dear friend and colleague, Mimo Meidany, and we’re both so excited to shooting in such an amazing city, with a group of awesome students. The workshop is sold out (we had someone who couldn’t make it, and we had a spot open, but last night somebody grabbed that last spot, so we’re sold out again.
June 7-10, 2019 | Paris, France
The World Modeling Convention, London
I’m really excited to be a part of this event. Here’s how they describe it:
“The World Modelling Convention is a ground-breaking event with a strong ethical side that helps models, photographers, fashion designers, makeup artists, and hairstylists to collaborate together in just one weekend. It offers a unique experience with thousands of photo shoots, fashion shows, paid advertisements, educational programmes and, job interviews.”
How cool is that!!! Plus, I’m really tickled to be teaching in London, England again where I have so many friends and folks who follow me on social and watch The Grid. I’m teaching portrait retouching techniques and can’t wait to share my latest techniques. Plus, Joe McNally will be there, so that makes it even more awesome!
June 15-16, 2019 | Business Design Centre, Islington, London
There our West-Coast Photoshop World in Vegas this August at our new Vegas home — the Mirage Resort & Casino. Plus, there’s my China Workshop in September, and more dates for my seminar tour, and well…there’s lots more to come, and I am lovin’ it!!! I love getting to teach live and meet new people, see new places, and find the best burger in those places. ;-)
Have a great weekend, everybody and I hope to see you someday soon, somewhere awesome. :)
If you want to save $100 on your Photoshop World Conference Pass, there’s only a week left!
I can’t believe it’s only a little more than a month away, and while the conference is almost here, the deadline for the Early Bird discount is even closer — this is the last week to save that extra $100 on a full-conference pass, so get your tickets right now (and don’t forget to snag a room at the official conference hotel, the Hyatt Regency Orlando — it’s where all the instructors and staff are saying, and the conference itself is in their convention center). First, watch this short (around 33-seconds) video to get you ready!
Here are the details:
Who: Landscape photographers, portrait photographers, Lightroom users, wedding photographers, designers, Photoshop freaks, creative people, newbies, pros, street photographers, social media content creators, Web developers, lighting lovers, and the best instructors in the world.
What: The Photoshop World Conference, produced by KelbyOne
Where: The Hyatt Regency Orlando Conference Center
When: May 3o-June 1, 2019
Why: Because we all need to keep learning, keep laughing, keep being inspired, recharging our creative batteries, and getting away from it all for three days where we shut everything else out and just focus on our passions, our career, and ourselves.
I am so, so excited about this new full-day seminar — and here’s what’s it’s based on; if I could spend just one day with a friend, and I only had that one day to give them a giant leap forward in their photography, what would I teach them that would have a real, immediate impact on their photography. What could I show them, that would change their photography from that day forward. That’s exactly what I put in this semimar.
Check out this video and you’ll totally get it.
Who should attend this new seminar?
It’s not aimed at pros (though there will be some pros there for sure); but it’s for landscape photographers, portrait photographers, travel photographers, flash shooters, natural light portrait folks, wedding photographers, and street shooters, fine art photographers, food photographers, and anyone who is just tired of struggling along, and knows there’s got to be an easier, faster, better way to make great images.
It kicks off next month in Indianapolis and Minneapolis
…and I want you to come out and spend the day with me. You have nothing to lose — it’s risk-free because it’s 100% money-back guarantee if it’s not the best photography seminar, you’ve ever attended, at any price ever. Period! Don’t spend the next five years “paying your dues” and learning everything the hard way, or not learning it at all. If you’re ready to make a big jump in your skills and start taking great images now, this is the one day that can change everything.
It’s just $99 for the full day of training and includes a detailed printed workbook (the biggest one I’ve ever written by the way) bonus videos and more goodies. It’s a kick-butt day and you’re going to learn a lot no matter where you are on your photographic journey.
Here’s the ticket info for Indy (Tuesday, May 7, and Minneapolis, (Thursday, May 9). I hope I get to meet you in person next month for a day that’s going to change everything!
Have a great Easter weekend, everybody!
P.S.More cities and dates to be announced soon, but we’re going pretty much everywhere in the US, so hopefully we’ll be in your hometown soon. :)
