Lots of cool stuff to share today, about some great folks, and friends of the blog:
> First, my buddy, and aviation photographer, Jose Ramos (better known by his call sign “Fuji”), just got a two-page spread (shown above) featuring his photography, including air-to-air shots, in the upcoming Winter issue of “Hook Magazine.” Congrats Jose! (Disco, out).
> You guys who read this blog regularly are already familiar with the incredible automotive photography of UK-based photographer Tim Wallace, and as much as we so know he’s among the world’s best, it’s great to see him getting some of the public accolades he so richly deserves, as Tim recently won the Professional Advertising Photographer of the Year Award for 2010. A big congrats to Tim!!! Here’s the link.
> Last week I ran a short video by our friend Glyn Dewis on a look back at his photography shoots for 2010 (link), and this week I ran across an interview with Glyn that’s really a great read, and there’s lot of great photos as well. It’s over at the BrandonJFX blog (link). If you’ve got a moment, check it out.
> This week we have German retoucher, total Photoshop shark, and all around cool-guy, Calvin Hollywood here at the Kelby Training Studios down in Florida. Calvin’s here taping a series of Photoshop classes he’s doing for Kelby Training Online. He’s doing some really amazing stuff (he’s here with a studio lighting wizard from Germany, and the two of them work together as a team, staging the shots (all live for the cameras), then Calvin takes over with the retouch. Amazing stuff! We had Calvin as a guest on Photoshop User TV as well, so keep an eye out—he may be on this week’s show, or if not, next week’s for sure.
That’s it from here; have a great Tuesday everybody!
Thanks for mentioning my blog :) It means a lot…. It was great meeting you at PSW Vegas….
Nice shout outs for the UK – thanks me ol’ china ;o)
I’m looking forward to seeing Calvin’s work for Kelby training (like many others I’m sure).
Belated congrats to Tim on his achievement (somehow I missed this announcement in the UK Photographic press) and I’ll be sure to pop over to Brandon’s blog and read Glyn’s interview.
I helped out Calvin in Vegas last year and he’s a real good guy. I can’t wait to see what he has put together for KelbyTraining!
Glyn is a great guy. Its cool of you to mention him.
Way too kind of you Tim; but I’ll take the compliment none the less :)
Nice to hear about Calvin…
visited one of his workshops. Awesome Guy and extremly photoshop addicted :D
greeetings from germany
Scott Calvin, Jose, Tim and Glyn are all cool and kick butt! I follow all of them. Ole Calvin is a contact on Twitter and I have about learned German following him for a long time! Between him and Frank Doorhof I’m about fluent!
You seem to be slipping a little – you were only 7th to comment this time :-)
A mention on the blog and now being called ‘cool’; something I thought I’d go through life without ever being called.
Ken…you’ve made a big smile even bigger
Cheers :) lol
I really don’t know what to say Disco. I’m at a loss for words. Thank you my friend. All the best – Fuji Out
Calvin could have done some tips for D-Town too! hahahahah Isn’t that what you say, every time someone is there you make them do some tips? hahahahahhaha
Awesome news about Calvin’s Kelby Training courses. That’ll get me to make sure I renew my subscription.
I loved your coverage and images of the Bears/Packers game. Sorry about the misfortune of the monopod incident, but what a great tale to tell the grandkids one day :). I really like the bleach bypass filter effect you used on some of the images. Any word on Nik Color Efex Pro 4.0?
Thanks for sharing!
