Category Archives The Gallery at KelbyOne

One of our recent winners works for the police dept. in the UK. One is an Anesthesiologist. One drives trains on the Long Island Railroad. Our next winner could be you.

I’m happy to announce that entries are now open for our gallery competition, and the winner gets their own solo gallery showing at The Gallery at KelbyOne, in Tampa, Florida, (including airfare and hotel for you and a guest).

If you’re thinking there’s no way you could win, that’s exactly what all over previous winners said. The only way you don’t have a chance is if you don’t enter.

Here’s a quick one-minute video with some details:

Here’s how to enter: 

  1. Here’s where you submit a link to your portfolio, or Facebook album, or Flickr page, or online gallery – (we’re looking for a body of work – at least 20 images) Note: this competition is only open to KelbyOne Pro members.
  2. From the submissions, we will choose a single winner. It could be you. If it is, we’ll fly you and a guest (from anywhere in the world) to the gallery in Tampa, Florida for a solo gallery showcasing your work, where we’ll feature approximately 18 of your images, beautifully printed and displayed by Bay Photo Lab using their amazing Xpozer system.
  3. The evening of the opening, you will welcome the crowd to a wine and cheese reception held in your honor that evening in the gallery where they can see your work, and get a chance to chat with you in person.
  4. Following the reception, we’ll move to our theater for an interview with you about your work, your life, your inspirations, and well…you. It will be streamed live around the world (along with behind-the-scenes images of the opening, and photos of your work).
  5. When it’s all over, you will receive all the prints from the exhibition (courtesy of Bay Photo Lab), and one of your images will be added our permanent collection, so future visitors can get see one of your winning gallery images.

One more thing…

P.S. I’m in Atlanta tomorrow with my ‘Photoshop for Lightroom Users’ full-day seminar. It’s not too late to come out and spend the day with me learning some really cool Photoshop stuff. Tickets and details here.

Saturday night, we were honored to feature the outstanding landscape photographer of KelbyOne member Ramtin Kazemi in his own solo Gallery Opening, and wine and cheese reception. Ramtin (“Rami”) was awesome — so gracious to everyone, answering questions and chatting with everyone and his artist chat, hosted by the always awesome Larry Becker, was just fantastic — he was so inspiring, informative, and fun.

And, just like every other opening we’ve had at the gallery, there are so many questions about the system we use in the gallery for displaying the prints. First, there are all kinds of questions of the paper and printing process, and then how they are displayed on the walls where they stand out from the wall. I was chatting with some folks about the system and I went into our storage room and found a print from a previous showing, and I brought it out and everybody rushed over to see how this is all done. That got me to thinking — I had recorded an interview with Glen Clark from BayPhoto Lab (the inventors of the Xpozer system we use in the gallery) back at Photoshop World earlier this year, and I wanted to share it with you here so you can see how it all works.

After the short video below, I want to share some shots from Saturday’s opening with Ramtin.

Pretty amazing — and it’s so lightweight. Anyway, Hope you found that helps.

Here are a few shots from Saturday’s gallery opening for Ramtin Kazemi:
Such a great evening! (Event photos by Rachel Scott. First two by Kalebra).

Thanks to everyone who came out to our Gallery Opening for Ramtin, and thanks of course to Rammy himself, and his super fun, super supportive girlfriend Amanda who was such a joy — it really was a wonderful night. I hope you can make it to one of these openings in person — it’s really something special to see. The wine and cheese aren’t bad, either. ;-)

Have a great week everybody — let’s make it a great one!

Best,

-Scott

P.S. If you missed Rami’s artist talk Saturday night – we’ll be replaying it in its entirety, this Tuesday. Keep an eye on my Facebook or Twitter accounts for the link to the free rebroadcast. :)

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.

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. 

 

British Photographer Ian Munro will have his own solo show tonight at “The Gallery at KelbyOne”
Tonight, at a special wine & cheese reception we’ll be celebrating the photographic work of Ian Munro and you’re invited to be a part of the opening, no matter where you are in the world.

Ian won a competition we hold several times a year for KelbyOne Pro members where the winner gets a solo gallery show with images beautifully printed on Vivid Satin by Bay Photo Lab using their unique Xpozer print display system.

We’re live-streaming our interview with Ian tonight, and you’ll get a peek at the gallery, and his witty, wonderfully inspiring work.” It will be a night to remember, and you’ll see it all unfold live.

Details: 

Who: Photographer Ian Munro and our host Larry Becker (Plus, a bunch of people enjoying wine and cheese). Mmmm. Cheese.
What: 
The Opening reception and interview from Ian’s solo show at  “The Gallery at KelbyOne”
When: Tonight – Friday, March 16th – the live broadcast with Ian starts at @8pm ET
Where: My Facebook Page, or at http://kelbyone.com/gallery-webcast
Why: To showcase the amazing work of our KelbyOne members, and share their work with a worldwide audience

The presentation starts at 8 PM ET (Note to International viewers: the US observes Daylight Savings Time so we recently moved our clocks forward 1-hour). Hope you can join us. :)

For more details about the gallery competition (including how to enter when we open the next round of entries shortly), jump over here.

See you tonight – you will enjoy meeting Ian, and you absolutely love his work.

Best,

-Scott

Once again, KelbyOne Members all over the world sent in entries, and these entries keep getting better and better, which makes the judging harder and harder. Nevertheless, we found an incredible photographer to honor with this own solo gallery show opening, and we’re excited to announce that our latest winner is UK-based photographer/Photoshop artist:

Ian Munro

Ian (and a guest of his choice) will be flown to Tampa, Florida to be there for the wine and cheese reception celebrating his own solo gallery show at “The Gallery at KelbyOne.” (Note: If you’re like “What’s this whole gallery thing?” check out this quick Q&A)

Ian’s fine art conceptual storytelling and his masterful post processing style really captivated the judges. We kept coming back to his images again and again, because of their understated humor, wonderful composition, and an overall sense of taking you to a fanciful, peculiar, and distinctively different time and place.

One thing we’re really excited to see is how amazing Ian’s images look printed big on the walls of the gallery (the images are printed using Bay Photo Lab‘s ‘Xpozer’ system for exhibition printing, and Ian’s images are going to rock printed in this medium).

You’re invited to Ian’s gallery opening:

7:00 pm on Friday, March 16th at the Gallery at KelbyOne (in the Tampa, Florida area). 

Immediately following the reception, we’ll move into the theater where we’ll be broadcasting a live 1-hour interview (hosted by Larry Becker) with Ian at 8:00 pm ET that evening (streamed live and open to everyone).

More details and a link to RSVP as we get closer to the opening.

I want to once again recognize my awesome wife Kalebra for coming up with this idea of honoring, uplifting and celebrating the work of the talented photographers, illustrators and artists in the KelbyOne community by providing them with added recognition and a new audience to enjoy their work. Who knows what doors this could open, and I’m thrilled we get to be a small part of it all.

Congratulations Ian – we can’t wait to share your fun, fascinating storytelling images with the world. :)

Best,

-Scott
