Kelby Training Live Ticket

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

  1. Was at your seminar in Livonia yesterday. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. It was very entertaining and I learned a lot ! You kept my attention the whole day, which is no easy task lol. Looking forward to making it to another when you are in the area again. Now I just have to practise what you preached !! Thanks again Barb

  2. I would love to win the rental of Matt’s Landscaping Photography class. I’ve caught the Landscape and Travel photography bug pretty hard and would love to sharpen my skills.

    Thanks for making this available in this contest.

    1. That was totally my bad. Not sure how I missed putting that in there before, but thanks for mentioning it. I’ve added it in and it will be included in future posts :-)

  3. That Photoshop Design Challenge looks like a great way to test your skills in composition. I wish had the skills to even try! I watched Matt’s beginner’s class last night and I was surprised at how much I had written down as tips and tricks; I have been shooting landscapes for at least the last decades.
    Shoot Like a Pro Tour ticket in DC would be a treat! Thanks!
