Here’s a quick update on what’s going on at the upcoming Photoshop World Conference & Expo, coming up March 24-26 in Orlando, Florida:
David Cuerdon joins Instructor Dream Team
One of the most popular instructors on Kelby Training Online, expert photo retoucher and photographer David Cuerdon, is teaching all three days of the expo in the Expo Theater. If you haven’t had a chance to learn from David online, this is a great opportunity to catch him live (where he totally rocks by the way!).
I’m teaching three classes—all of them brand new!
I’ve got all new classes this time around: (1) An all new “Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks” class, packed with Photoshop special effects, (2) Lightroom Killer Tips (with loads of little-known tricks, workarounds, and time-savers), and (3) Designing with Type for Photographers: a class for photographers on how to make type work with your photography and how to get professional-looking results for everything you design with type. I hope I get to see you in my sessions!
Flights are cheap!
I checked last night, and flights right now are a bargain. For example, round trip from:
- New York on Delta: $198
- Boston: $216 on Delta
- Atlanta: $174 on USAir
- Charlotte: $154 on AirTran
- Chicago: $205 on American Airlines
- London Gatwick: $675 on Delta
- Frankfurt, Germany $681 on USAir. Sweet!!!!
Stay where we’re staying
The instructors and Photoshop World staff are staying at the Omni Rosen Hotel right next door to the Convention Center, and they’re offering a special $125 rate for Photoshop World attendees. Here’s the link with more details.
There’s a Photoshop World Blog
To keep up with what’s going on, check out the Photoshop World blog (from Nancy Massé and company) because they’ve always got the latest stuff (I have to go there myself to find out what’s new), plus they usually have a contest or giveaway of some sort going on. Here’s the link.
There is no “In/Out Burger in Orlando”
Matt and I are totally disoriented because we don’t know where to go for burgers after Photoshop Midnight Madness. We’re open to ideas.
Free One-on-One Portfolio Reviews
This is one of those “Best Kept Secrets” at Photoshop World, and it’s free for any registered attendee. If you’re going, and you want to seriously take your career to the next level, you’ve got to take advantage of this (here’s the link).
Walt Disney World is right down the street
If you’re thinking of bringing the family with you, for a work/vacation visit, you’ll be happy to know that not only is Walt Disney World nearby, so is Universal Studios and Sea World. Sweet!
Some of the Pre-Conference Workshops are Selling Out Already!
The day before Photoshop World we offer a bunch of intensive pre-conference workshops, including a number of live shoot workshops. Some of these, like the NAPP Safari, have already sold out, and the next one to sell out is David Ziser’s On-Location Wedding Shoot workshop, along with Deke McClelland’s Photoshop Channels & Mask workshop. You can still snag a place at the Concert Photography Live workshop, and the Editing Video with DSLR cameras classes, and the live “Shoot and Edit your own Movie Poster” workshop. Here’s more info.
Catch the Video!
If you’ve never been to Photoshop World, and want to know what it’s all about, just watch this video. It does a better job of capturing the Photoshop World experience than about anything I’ve seen.
