It’s Free Stuff Thursday!

Lightroom Conference at Photoshop World
If you’re a photographer, chances are you’re using Lightroom in your workflow (and if you’re not, find out why you should be right here). Did you know that there’s a whole Lightroom Conference that takes place at Photoshop World? It includes three days of classes taught by the top Lightroom instructors in the world including those from Kelby Training (Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski, RC Concepcion, and Pete Collins), Adobe (Tom Hogarty, Bryan Hughes, Julieanne Kost, and Terry White), and more! It’s all taking place in Las Vegas from September 4-6 (or come a day early and sign up for the Lightroom 5 Crash Course workshop with Matt Kloskowski).

Find out more over at, and leave a comment for your chance to win a full-conference pass!

Copyright Essentials for Today’s Photographers
In the latest addition to the course library, Copyright Essentials for Today’s PhotographersMia McCormick is joined by special guests Jack Reznicki, a commercial photographer, and Ed Greenberg, an intellectual property attorney, to discuss the most pressing, need-to-know copyright information for photographers in front of a live studio audience. Over the course of 2 hours, Ed and Jack answer questions from the audience, do a live walk through of how to register your copyright online, and share a wealth of wisdom, tips, and stories that will inspire you to take the necessary steps to protect your work.

If you’re one of the lucky winners, we’ll be in contact soon! I’m off to Tennessee tomorrow to visit family for a week and enjoy the musical stylings of Milk Carton Kids and Josh Ritter tomorrow night with my brother, so we’ll be skipping Free Stuff Thursday next week (plus it’s Independence Day, so we’re closed anyway). See you right back here in a couple of weeks!


  1. Hello Scott, it seems the new courses of LR 5 by Matt Kloskowski will be available only on Napp website training. Don’t you think that since LR is the main software for photographers it should belong to Kelby Training? I think about LR as a tool for photographers like tripod and flash. In this moment there is some confusion since there are a lot of videos about LR 3-4 and PS on Kelby training webiste.
    And when you changed that without any sort of communication?

  2. Scott, I enjoy watching you on Kelby TV and it would be so amazing to win a chance to be at the Shoot Like A Pro with Scott Kelby July 29 – Colorado Springs, CO. My wife is a claims adjuster working the fires there right now and I may be up there in July… I would flip if I could get to see you in person and pick up some great training… Hope to see you there! Are the tickets in the mail??? Thanks for all Kelby Media does…

  3. No Peter Hurley at PhotoshopWorld? Anything on managing the Creative Cloud? Electric Cat? Tempt me to haul my rear to Vegas from LA. Maisel almost did it. Already a NAPP and Training subscriber. Enjoy Tennessee.

  4. I promised myself that this is the year I’m going to Photoshop World. And a chance to win a full-conference pass makes it all that much sweeter. So please put me in the drawing for PSW Vegas! Thanks much, and Happy Thursday!

  5. Scott and Brad, I’ve been to PSW several times, but nothing would beat being able to go for free. Pick me for the conference pass so I can do the LR conference at PSW!

  6. Hi Brad, Since I used Scott’s book to learn LR4, I’d love the chance to attend the LR5 Conference. I watch Matt and Scott all the time on The Grid and really appreciate all the help they offer.

  7. Okay Scott I really need to win the DPB Vol 1 second edition, I have the first edition, but need to be updated on the new stuff. I know where you live Scott so if I do not win I will be sitting outside your house waiting for you and then force you to read the book to me for bedtime stories…haha. Great post Scott I love the stuff you are doing over at Kelby and NAPP. Thanks

  8. Glad to see the Copyright class at KelbyTraining. It’s nice that all facets, beyond just taking and processing images, are explored. Also, thanks for reminding me about the August 21st date for Shoot Like a Pro. I signed up for the Seattle stop but had to travel out of town. As with Aug. 21, I had to be in . . . wait for it . . . Indianapolis.

  9. I love using LightRoom but there are things that still puzzle me. Your Conference here in LA was the best and has actually gotten me motivated to start learning more for photography Plus my mom was so impressed she cant wait to get her photography business rolling.
    I know we’ll benefit from PSW. Theres always something new to learn, or brush up on things you may have forgotten. I’ve never been there or to Vegas but it looks fun.

  10. Looking forward to the next big conference in the DC area again. PSW was a blast. Please pick me for Joe McNally July 31 – Virginia Beach, VA or Aug 7 – Charlotte, NC. Thanks guys!

  11. I’d love to win the Photoshop world. Not sure though if I could afford the trip and would love to win another live seminar. Both I have been to have been amazing! But none are in my area. Great prizes though if I win I would find a way. :)

  12. Hey Guys, please enter me into the drawing for Photoshop World tickets. I would love to meet all of you first hand and thank you for all you do in the photography and Adobe software community.

  13. Scott, Two things: First, I would love a full boat conference pass. I attended three times back when the western version was in LA and San Diego. This year it is finally time to get to Vegas — I really want to learn more about LR and this seems the perfect opportunity. Second ;-) I have been waiting for long years for you to come back to San Jose/San Francisco again and now that you finally do so I won’t be able to attend because three weeks before you arrive I will be moving to Boise, Idaho (will you ever come to Boise???)

    Anyway all the more reason for that free pass to Vegas.

  14. I’ve never been to Photoshop World, but I’d love to go – have enough points on Southwest for a flight – if I was fortunate enough to receive a comp pass, I would certainly sign up for the Joe McNally workshop the day before and buy all the Photoshop Guys drinks every night….well, okay, guess it would be less expensive to just buy the pass :) Cheers to Photoshop World!

  15. Might have to miss Vegas this year due to being out on a work injury, broke my hip responding to a call, (I’m a Paramedic) so extra cash is in short supply.
    So I will keep entering and see if I can win a pass, and keep trying to save up.
    I am already a Kelby training subscriber so if Iget picked for that prize, please giove it to some one who can really use it!

  16. I plan on being at Photoshop World this year! I’ve already purchased my plane ticket for a girls weekend that begins there when the conference ends! I’d love to win a conference pass!
