Happy Thursday guys and gals, Brad here again. Here’s the pimpy!

  • NAPP member Cindy McDaniel has a cool mix of photography and post production work in her portfolio that you should check out here (that’s just one image from her portfolio at the top of this post)!
  • Portrait photographer (and previous guest blogger) Tim Mantoani photographed Drew Brees of the Saints for the cover of the Madden NFL 11 video game earlier this year. He posted some behind the scenes videos of the two-day shoot on his blog that give a good look at what goes into the production of the cover. Check them out right here!  (Tim also has a killer portfolio at Mantoani.com)
  • Our buddy Big Daddy Don Page recently did a time lapse video called “Chasing Landscapes” that kicks butt!  You can see it here and see how he did it here.
  • Scott’s bringing his Photoshop for Digital Photographers Tour to Islington, London, UK on October 15th. Get all the details and sign up right here.
  • Hey Seattle! Matt Kloskowski will be bringing the same tour to your beautiful city on November 18, and you can find more info right here as well!
  • Sean Duggan has a very interesting series of pinhole photographs (made with a wooden camera) featured in the July/August issue of Photo Technique magazine. You can see the series right here.
  • If you’re into microstock photography, Ellen Bough just released her book Microstock Money Shots: Turning Downloads into Dollars with Microstock Photography.  You can for under $20 from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

That’s it for today. Stop by again tomorrow for some amazingly awesome and cool stuff from Scott!  (Actually, I have no idea what he has lined up this time, but I’m sure it’ll be great whatever it is ;) )

  1. Tim Mantoani is the man. Wow all that behind the scenes stuff was so cool!

    also, Thanks for the shoutout also Scott and Brad!

  2. I would have loved to attended the London seminar but wont be able too. Ever considered doing one at the NEC Birmingham (UK Birmingham) I’m sure it would be popular. Can’t say how much Scott and the team have helped with my acquiring of skills. All the best Lynda

  3. Some really cool photography Cindy, love photography with the vintage effects on them.

    Thanks for sharing, and keep up the great work.

  4. Scott,

    Is there going to be a pub mixer meeting with you, while you’re in London?

  5. Cool stuff. I really like the picture at the top of the blog

  6. We are two nations separated by a common language as someone once said. Got the ‘kick butt’ thing but what exactly is ‘pimpy’? Sounds a bit rude to me.

    Getting quite excited about London now, in a middle-aged kind of way.

  7. That shot of Cindy’s is absolutely beautiful.

  8. Thanks for all your explanations above. I am signed up for London – even more excited after reading Mike’s comments! Thanks also for the encouragement re the site, Ken. I have to admit it’s an off the peg WordPress theme. I’m still deciding whether I like it or not. That’s the great thing about WordPress though – it can be changed so easily.

  9. Signed up to see Scott in London and can’t wait!

  10. Hey guys.. someone just congratulated me for being here, I had no idea. What a cool surprise!
    I think you guys rock so I am honored.. thanks so much for the recognition.
