  1. Brad:

    Is RC doing book signings if you order through Kelby Training, like he did for his last book?

    Thanks for all the Pimpy today! CAKB, as usual.


  2. I signed up for the “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it” tour stop in Orlando yesterday. However, I didn’t see the check-box for my club level seating options with catered cupcakes. Please let me know when that’s available.

  3. Danke schön Calvin!!! Absolutely a superb training video!!! It was like a great movie that I dd not want to end. You made every technique easy to follow and the results are magical. I am doing two shoots this weekend and I will surely apply all this new knowledge. I am already looking forward to another training video from you!!!
