About The Author


  1. I’ll take it if nobody else does.

  2. Wow! Wasn’t familiar with the BT Journal but took a look at the free PDF issue and was blown away. Thanks for the lead.

  3. Any trips to Eastern Washington/ Northern Idaho planned?

  4. Would love the new iPhone book!

  5. 800 tricks in a bag. I’d love to have that

  6. 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!

  7. 1,2,3,4 books to improve? Please count me in!!!

  8. Ooo love free stuff ;0)

  9. I would love the books! You guys are my photo university!

  10. Hello Mr. Scott,
    I am a huge fan of yours and I would gladly participate in this small “competition” for your books :)Greetings from Lithuania!

  11. A mini-Scott? I’ll take one of those. Does it come with a mini-Brad too?

  12. Please include me in the drawing for Scott’s Digital Library.  Thanks

  13. Scott I’d love to put my hands on Digital Photography Library, especially when it involves all four of them  :)

  14. Throw my name in the hat for the Iphone book.

  15. Where is the free chapter 3?

  16. I would love if the Easter Bunny brought the Digital Photography Library, but I promise not to snap his picture.

  17. I like the idea of the Digital Photography library. I would appreciate having all that education in one place.

  18. In for the books! :-)

  19. 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.

  20. 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 :)

  21. D4 pix are amazing!

  22. Congrats on the new book; LR4 is doing a fantastic job with my photos.

    Would love a London LISIRI ticket please..

  23. I see Braddo has not been disposed of for taking your D800 Scott! Thanks for letting him stick around to do free stuff Thursday. :)

  24. Great book(s), great contest – as allways ;-) Thanks for that

  25. Happy Easter guys.

  26. I’m a big fan of Scotts other books, I’m sure this set of books iare great also

  27. Include me in the library draw please!

  28. 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?

  29. 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.

  30. Brad, there isn’t a working link to chapter 3 of the iphone book.

  31. 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! 

  32. All 4 Scott Kelby book’s in one slipcase? Amazing! It would be like having instant access to Scott’s brain on all things digital!

  33. Winning isn’t everything, but it’s better than paying full price!

  34. Can’t make it to London but winning any of the books sure would be great! Sign me up.

  35. 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.

  39. Books are meant to be read, and they can surely help me in teaching my peers and members of my photog soc in taking better snaps!

  40. Scott Kelby Digital Photography Library – Books 1, 2, 3, and 4 would make a great addition to my camera club’s (Merrimack Valley Camera club) library!
