If you’re one of the lucky winners, we’ll be in touch soon. Have a great Thursday!

  1. I’m always amazed watching Corey’s classes on Kelby One. I feel confident learning from him just by how proficient he is in Photoshop. His tips and tricks are brilliant and I find myself utilizing much of what I learn into my own projects.

    Well done.

  2. Scott – I’m willing to throw 2 more of my Night Photography Books into the mix as well as make sure they are all signed! Thanks for helping spread the word and let’s Seize the Night!

  3. I have the original book, and have used it to the extent that the covers have fallen off. I can’t imagine all the gems Corey has placed in #2… If you would be so kind to consider me for one of those copies, I would be very grateful. For those of you that don’t own the first book. Grab it. It’s a great addition to your options in your workflow.

  4. I enjoyed Corey’s last Down & Dirty Tricks Book, can’t wait to see what’s in Volume 11! He is an amazing artist and instructor. I’m also interested in Gabrieal’s Night Photorgraphy Book, since I can’t make it to any of the workshops. Love th opportunity to win either of these books! THANKS!

  5. I attended the Shot Like A Pro tour in Boston. Great day, lots of information and probably the best formatted event of it’s kind. NO NOTE TAKING REQUIRED!

  6. Fantastic book. If you are serious about graphic/print design I highly recommend this book. Picks up right where he left off in volume I. I purchased kindle version of Vol 2, which I found hard read. I would love to have a paperback copy.

  7. Hi Scott (and Brad)! As many others have echoed, I also have and love Corey’s D&DT book 1! I have an autographed copy and my tattered, torn and worn “work” copy of book 1, so, it would be awesome to pick up the next volume! Thanks for all you do!

    Take care!

  8. I’m a newby and subscribed to KelbyOne a month ago. I have learned SO much already and any additional tips via any of the offerings would be coveted.

  9. Would really appreciate Corey’s new book. Had a chance of a lifetime and attended PSW in Vegas last year and actually met Corey and the rest of the Kelby Training community, and wow what an experience!

  10. Mentoring some young Moms just getting into photography and Photoshop. Took a couple to The Lansing seminar. Any help with free training information will help me teach these young Mom’s who are working hard at their new craft which supports them financially so they can be stay at home Moms. Thanks for your consideration.

  11. i’d love the book, i’m still looking for that jaw i dropped when i saw Corey use a picture of lightnings to make cracks in cement on a special shows months ago!

  12. Hello Scott, Brad & the rest of the team! :D
    I would love to win the night photography book or Down & Dirty Tricks. I was fortunate enough to be out in Zion for a day a few years ago & have been DYING to go back!! It was the first time I’ve ever truly seen the night sky (I grew up just outside NYC). Corey is also amazing! I met him (& was slightly terrorized by lol) during my first Midnight Madness at PSW in Boston. Thank you to everyone at Kelby One for such an amazing experience at that PSW & all the ones that I’ve attended since. It has been such a pleasure to learn from all of you!
