Congratulations, and we’ll be in touch soon!

  1. I would love this – I keep checking the books out from my local library – but I have to wait because they are so popular – I need to get on a wait list.  would love to have my own!

  2. Tickets to the Light it. Shoot it. Retouch it event in London would be a dream come true, it would also be an honour to meet you for the first time. Fingers crossed.

  3. I want to add vol 4 to my library also your new LR4 book. I hope you will have a range of your books for sale in Islington!

    Balliolman :)

  4. Who wouldn’t want a miniature Scott Kelby in their photo backback!! And if the book set came with an official Scott Kelby bobble head it’s off the charts! Just think, you’re shooting something and don’t know what to do. Whip out your Scott Kelby bobble head, swivel his head right and left and he gives you some suggestions just like if he was standing there with you. Or maybe he just gives you the book number and chapter to read.
    Brad and Scott I smell a marketing bonanza here, don’t you?

  5. I preordered the Stacy Pearsall book after reading Scott Bourne’s blog post from 4/2. Just from his description of her and her commitment to and sacrifices for our country, I felt obligated and excited to place my order.

  6. Man I would so love to win a ticket to the London LISIRI event! I took up photography 3 years ago here in Ireland after reading Scotts Digital photography trilogy. These books ignited a passion in me to learn more about a little part-time hobby and it’s been full steam ahead since. I recently shot beauty head shots for a top makeup artist’s website, using the retouching techniques I learnt from Scott’s LISIRI book as well as his Professional Retouching Techniques book. The client was ecstatic with the results!
    Through Scott’s books, his online Kelby Training and his introduction to the greats like Joe McNally I now earn a crust by doing something I am in love with! Even if I don’t get that coveted ticket ;) I just want to say a big THANK YOU for the invaluable resource and the passion you guys inspire! 

  7. Random random random, keep them doggies random, rawhiiiiide! I like free stuff, but can’t make it to London. But I am getting my first iPad.

  8. Please enter me for tickets to the London event. Would love to go but just don’t have the cash at the minute. As always thanks for all the stuff you give us free of charge anyway

  9. You say you are giving away Scott’s Books numbers One, Two, Three and Four,
    I say AWESOME, there is nothing that I could ever want more!

    “But wait,” you say– “…it even comes with a SLIPCASE”‘
    Well now, knock me to the floor with a feather and watch me smack my face!

  10. I have the set and they are great. I would love to win a set because I have a friend I would give them too who would get some use out of them.

  11. I always enjoy Scott’s books.  Like so many others, I would share with several other starters and even some advanced shooters.  Way to go.

  12. Would love the full set of Scott’s Digital Library. I have the first 3 books but not the new edition. If I win I can give 1-3 to my daughter. Also my next phone come summer will be the iphone so I wouldn’t mind the iPhone book ….Thank you for the chance to win,
    Jan Gemeinhardt

  13. Scott you are the best!!!! Thanks for constantly inspiring all of us and keeping us in the loop with new technologies.  I also took one of your classes @PSW12 and enjoyed it tremendously.  You always do a great job!! Hope the London training goes well!!

  14. Glenn N from Chi-town here.   I would love to be able to get my hands on any of these books.   I just placed my order for the New lighroom book.

  15. I have the books already and tell everyone about them.  I’d love to be able to give a set away to an outstanding student in the HS photography club I work with.

  16. Loved the Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It stop in NYC and the G+ hangouts I’ve been able to take part in (in addition to my NAPP & Kelby Training memberships) – I’m hooked on Kelby Media! And, I can’t get enough. Bring on that prize! 

  17. I highly recommend anyone who can get to London for the LISIRI-Live event to do so. I caught the even in Houston and it was a blast. Would love to score the 4th book in the SKDPL. I’ve learned a bunch from the first 3!

  18. Soon I will be traveling across country trapped in the middle seat between, what I’m sure will be, two of the most ideal travel companions ever.  Winning would give me something to read and thus keep me sane.  Help please!!

  19. I’d love to have Volume 4 and the slipcase, although I’d have to hang on to my autographed slipcase from the 3 volume set as well!  I’d be sure to pass on the duplicate volumes to a photographer friend to share the wealth!

  20. Oh wow  . . would love to win  your library! I have just one of the books (kindle version) and love it. Actually I have several Scott Kelby books . . my most loved is the Lightroom 3 book. That sucker made Lightroom my favorite tool, the poor book is dog-eared and bookmarked and loved to death! :D
