Moose Peterson Workshops
Short Lens Wildlife Photography Course is for anybody with any brand and any focal length lens. But the goal is to teach basic and advance wildlife photography techniques and strategies using lenses no longer than 400mm. Just how do you fill the frame with your subject with just a 200mm or 300mm lens? That's one question we'll answer in this two day class. In that answer is such information like finding the critter, light, flash, biology, approach and a few other essential pieces of the puzzle. August 18-19

Photography Biz Course - The business of photography, it seems to mystify, frustrate and baffle most. I can understand why, there is a ton of really bad information out there! For a long time, we held a business course in our office but the response died so it stopped. Then with the web getting hot, the "need" seemed great again so we offered a class but it too soon died off. Now in the first half of this year we've been pounded with the question, "DO you offer a photography business course?"  November 17-18

To register, call 760.924.8632, and leave a comment for your chance to win a copy of Moose’s book, Captured!

We’ll be in touch with you today to coordinate your prizes with you. Have a great Thursday!

  1. Cool, definately signed up for Alan’s webinar on Color Efex 4 (my favorite plug-in). The 2 presets Matt K has on his website are great, I’ve used them several times already. Put me in the hat to win please!

  2. Photoshop World in Las Veagas sounds like a great time. I would love to learn new skills for some of the top teachers in the industry. Great blog Mr. Kelby!

  3. I guess I should have started out by spelling Las Vegas right oops. It’s late and I’m typing on a cell at 1AM….and yes I would still like to go to Vegas Photoshop World. Thanks Scott and Brad!

  4. Scott, you guys are so generous! I’m sure everyone here is so very thankful for things you do to help us become better photographers. Thanks!

  5. If only I didn’t have two trips planned… I’d go on that one with Moose! But I hope he’s doing some stuff next year because I’ll plan to go. :)

  6. Brad, your photos of Scott playing the “It’s not my reunion tour” were fun.  I’d love to go to Las Vegas or anything else.

  7. I’ll challenge Scott in foosball for some free stuff! He wins he can have all his books I’ve already purchased back and I’ll even sign them for him.


  8. I just wanted to say that Scott’s course “Crushing Composition” inspired me. I have been struggling to improve my % of “Keepers,” but now realize that my approach and “Working a scene” are just fine. I’m free to shoot, shoot, shoot!

  9. I love this site! I am new to the Kelby training but have learned tons of stuff already.
    Winning any thing here would be awesome!

  10. Big fan of your Crush the Composition seminar and Brad’s appearance. Had no idea he worked for Joe McNally, too! BTW, I’m surprised the Grid episode with Joe McNally doesn’t have more views. It was mind blowing!!!

  11. Check out the CEO of Drobo Tom Buiocchi in his own blog not able to respond about standard performance numbers of the Drobo Thunderbolt.  Sounds like another SLOOOW product coming up – for $850 empty with 2 year warranty so they can still charge the add-on

  12. I’d love the Photoshop World pass. I went last year for the first time and it was great. Funds are a little tight this year so it would be very much be appreciated!

  13. Vegas PSW is the best! I went last year and was blown away. I came back with so much amazing information that really advanced my photoshop and graphic design skills. I would LOVE to go back for free this year!!!

  14. Man, how I need to get that pass to Photoshop World!  Would love a chance to go to that.  Thanks for all the other great information!

  15. Hey Brad, I won the photoshop conference pass at the Nashville Scott kelby live tour. They said I could use it for Vegas in september or Orlando in march. Do you have dates for march? Orlando is much better for me but I have some prior commitments in march and want to make sure there is not a conflict. Could you email me at
