What Happened To RC?
RC Concepcion and crew went to Gary, Indiana to record our highly anticipated Exposing HDR course.

Sounds great, right? Well, it was going great until something went terribly wrong (we think), but we lost the feed and this is the only footage we have.

What happened to RC and crew? Are they in danger? Will we ever see them again? Will we have to get another instructor for our Exposing HDR course? We don't know, but you can check in at KelbyTraining.com on Thursday, October 31st at 4pm EDT to find out! You have no idea what will be unveiled!

About The Author


  1. Would love to win the 1-month subscription to kelbytraining!! Cheers guys!

  2. I always thought there was something fishy about Gary Indiana. :)

  3. With the lack of a new Paranormal Activity movie this year, it looks like RC’s exploits will have to do! Let’s hope he’s ok. ;-)

    Put me down for a chance to win a ticket to Scott’s Boston seminar.

  4. Hope RC and the crew are okay, but who is this Gary Indiana guy, very mysterious :)
    A free month’s subscription would help, ease the pain, whilst I worry about RC and the crew.

  5. Love all that you do. You’re my “go to guy”! And I sure would love to “go” to Kelby Online Training free for a month! Lol

  6. I live close to Gary…Weird things happen there this time of year. I also live very close to Chicago and would love to see the Lighting Master himself!

  7. It would be awesome to win the 1 year free subscription, thanks!

  8. Kelby Training rocks! Would love to hang out with you guys for a month.

  9. I always learn something from Scott and the gang! Would love to see Scott in Boston!

  10. Hi All, Second to last Thursday freebie before the event in Chicago 10/23
    . Kelby Live ticket so I can see Joe in person. Had a blast at the photowalk and would like to learn lots more from an instructor.

  11. Would love to see Scott in DC! Live training rocks.

  12. You guys are awesome! I would love to see Joe McNally in Chicago!

  13. I seen Scott in LIvonia Michigan, Awesome seminar, I would love that month of extra learning by the best in the business. Cheers. :)

  14. See, that’s why I don’t do URBEX photography.

  15. Well RC may be dead in Gary, Indiana, but I see his ghost will be alive and well in Phoenix on November 1. Now if you had put a cancelled sign over the Phoenix training, then I would have worried.

  16. great stuff, I love the teaser, fits so well with the subject.

  17. Brad, Question: When you guys post about ‘Free Stuff Thursday’… Exactly when is it the ‘free stuff’ is decided? As sometime the new page is posted very very early on a given day, and winners are already listed at the bottom of the page.. Like 7:00 AM..

    It’s just a clarification, maybe other wonder this too..

    I’d be in for the 1 month on training, if I’m not too late.

    • Hey John – The winners posted are last week’s winners, not this week’s. The post usually goes live right after midnight, but I put it together the day/night before. That’s when I pick the winners from last week’s post, then I email their info to our customer service team to set them up with their prizes. Hope that clears it up a bit!

  18. Would love another month of Kelby Training – it is simply the best!

  19. Would love to win some books for my Photoshop students! :D

  20. Scott,
    I just tried to convince Adobe to sell me the Photoshop Photography
    Program (Photoshop CC + Lightroom 5) at the $9.99/month rate being
    offered to owners of previous versions of photoshop… No go! Tried
    everything I could think of, even tried appealing to their patriotism
    (I’m a member of the armed forces), Nada! That package is PERFECT for

  21. Would love love love to win that subscription…. Just crossing my fingers and relying on the luck of the Irish :)

  22. You guys and gals are great. Would love to see Joe in Orlando.

  23. Any of those books would be great especially Arias one.

  24. In the shutdown category: Red Rock desert where I believe there was a pre-conference day at Photoshop World in Vegas this year was closed by the shutdown with No Trespassing signs. A $250 + $20 fee citation will be issued is caught. Yes, the US Government closed the desert.

  25. When i click on the video it says it is private. Oooooo scary stuff kiddies…..8>)

  26. Poor RC
    A book is so cool!

  27. I’d love to win one of the books, particularly the Martin Evening one. His books and Scott’s make a nice balance.

  28. You can never have too many books – that’s what I say. Please enter me to win one of the books. Thanks!

  29. Oh wow! RC lost in Gary Indiana! He may turn into a fellow ‘Hoosier’! :)
    And I would love to win your Lightroom 5 book. My Kelby Lightroom 3 book is much like the Velveteen Rabbit …. very worn and threadbare from all the love!

  30. I’d love one of the books. What a great selection!

  31. I’ve been to the Church in Gary a few times, this mouth. And it a terrible place. You would not like it at all. I would thing you would want to go some where else and stay away from here.

    No, seriously. the Church is awesome. And if your thinking of making a trip to it. Please take care of it. Seem like this year there has been a lot of traffic through the old Church. The Church is taking its hits. If you bring things in, take them out! Don’t mess with the perfection of the mess. Just saying respect it. I would like to visit it for a few more years.

  32. It would be great if I can win one of the Peachpit books. Happy Thanks Giving!

  33. I LOVE photo books! I hope I win one – fingers and toes crossed (yep, I can do that!). Kelby Training rocks!!!
