Editor's Note: Photoshop World is next week. We're holding a reader's breakfast there and some other events you'll have to ask about in person. Ive written a version of this article several years ago but I want to update and share why going to Photoshop World has changed my life. All I wanted to do was learn and better my craft. I never in a million years knew what would happen next. I believe it was 2010 that I came across a Photoshop World ad on Facebook. Im not one for ads at all but this caught my attention. It was in the spring time and I … [Read more...] about Why I Attend Workshops and Tradeshows?

I first met Dave Black at Photoshop World several years ago. He was setting up a balance beam in a lecture hall for a live shoot he was doing with a champion gymnast for a session he was teaching. As I watched him set up, interact with the gymnast, his assistant, and the room full of attendees; one of the things I was struck with the most was how much Dave loved photography. Daves career as a world-renowned sports photographer spans 30 years, hes covered every kind of sport you can think of, including 12 Olympic games, but the joy in his face … [Read more...] about Dave Black – Photographer, Teacher, and Author

The conference is held twice a year: once in an "East Coast location", and then in Las Vegas at the end of the summer. This upcoming Photoshop World will be the seventh one I have attended! (And the fact that I am now an instructor on KelbyOne is pretty cool, to top it all off!) If you have never been to Photoshop World, you're missing out on a whole lot of fun, photography, and (very frequent) goofiness. I put together my "Top 10" reasons that YOU … [Read more...] about Ten Reasons YOU Should Go to Photoshop World

I am a very fortunate man. I get to call Scott Kelby a pal. He's been there for me any time I've needed him and he's literally one of the nicest guys in the industry. I've in turn done everything I can to help him, not that he needs any help from me :) But perhaps one of the biggest honors in my career was bestowed upon me a few years ago when Scott asked me to join the PSW faculty for the fall show in Vegas. I've been fortunate enough to be invited to speak there the last several years and am happy to report that I will be speaking again … [Read more...] about Why I Think You Should Consider Attending Photoshop World – September 4-6 – Las Vegas
I'm honored and privileged to be a part of this year's Photoshop World. I went last year and helped out with blogging the keynote and leading a Tweetup.

The folks at Kelby Media Group are simply first-rate and first-class in every way. The presenters here are the best in the business. It appears that attendance is up slightly this year from last. That's a big deal considering the down economy. The programs are … [Read more...] about Photoshop World Las Vegas
