Hey gang, Brad here with this week’s pimpy stuff. We’ve got prizes, discounts, some exciting news, and more!

If you’re debating signing up for theĀ Real World Concert Photography pre-conference workshop with Scott Diussa and Alan Hess at Photoshop World, here’s something that might help with your decision…Someone from the class will be going home with a brand new Nikon D7000! The person who gets the best shot from the workshop will win the camera that’s been called the Camera of the Year by Engadget, PDN, and Photo Focus, and received CNET’s Editor’s Choice Award!

There are only a few spots left, so sign up now if you want a chance to win, or even if you don’t… It’s a really fun way to spend a day!

  1. Can’t turn down a free camera. Good luck to the participants!

  2. If I could only make the show!

  3. Well far cheaper to just buy one than fly to the USA and be in the contest – allthough it would be alot more fun.

  4. That’s a CAKB prize for the winner! I can’t make the class, due to when my plane lands in Orlando. Maybe next time. Can’t wait to see the winning shot, though!


    • OK I concede defeat. I have searched and searched, and still come up empty. What is CAKB? I feel so dumb.

      • Kevin:

        It’s something we started here last year sometime. It stands for “Cool And Kick Butt”. One of the blog readers took exception to the use of “kick butt” on one of Scott’s blog posts, so we use it all the time now (well, at least Ken Toney and I do!).


      • Thank you John!

  5. I can’t make it :( Good luck to those that will be in the class!

  6. The class is a lot of fun. When you think about it, the odds of winning are outstanding. The class is limited to 40 participants and only 28 submitted photos last year when I attended this pre-con. Where else will you get a 1:28 chance of winning a cool new camera?

  7. I may be a Canon guy, but I’d never turn down a chance for a free camera! (Especially one as nice as the D7000!)

  8. For some reason Photoshop Insider no longer appears in MyAlltop. Am I the only one experiencing this?

  9. Alan and I are really looking forward to our fourth time doing this workshop! It’s always a lot of fun. As William said above, there is a very good chance of winning and I can’t wait to see the images!

    If you can’t make it, then as an alternative check out the Concert Photography class we did on Kelby Training…

    It’s different than the pre-con workshop but it’s a good alternative if you can’t experience it in person. I believe that both would be a very well rounded experience.

  10. The RSS feed doesn’t seem to be working (i.e., updating with the latest articles). Or at least not on my Mac. Others, including “Lightroom Killer Tips” are working OK.

  11. I would LOVE to be in this class! But alas, funds are limited at the moment after recently buying a Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR1.
