Going, Going, Gone…Until Next Time

Photoshop World is over, most of the folks have gone home and are already looking at their calendars for next year. I had a great time teaching, hanging out with the other instructors, seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Thanks to everyone who make Photoshop World the amazingly fun event that it is…the men & women in black whose efforts and hard work make the show run so smoothly, the instructors, many of whom I only see every six months but we pick up right where we left off, to Scott, Dave, Kalebra, Larry, Kathy and the many other NAPP people who I love dearly and to all of you who attended with open hearts and minds, eager to learn and be inspired. Until next time….

Photoshop World Day 2

PS World

I can’t believe how fast the time goes at Photoshop World… With all the activity of the classes, the Expo floor, the great folks…it simply flies by. I managed to attend a couple sessions myself and thoroughly enjoyed myself learning and being entertained by RC Concepcion, Joe McNally and Jack Reznicki. I taught a class on the Expo floor to a standing room only crowd and saw many familiar faces in the crowd…thatnks to all who came. And the grand finale of the day was The Art of Digital Photography where we were all blown away by the amazing work of Jim DiVitale, Joe Glyda, Jay Maisel, Vincent Versace, John Paul Caponigro, Moose Peterson.

Photoshop World Kicks Off

It’s always a blast to go to the opening keynote at Photoshop World. The theme changes each year and this year has a sports theme. I look forward to the keynote each year to see what those crazy Photoshop Guys come up with. It’s not only highly entertaining but, it’s a place to go to learn about new products and updates from Adobe.


The middle of the day was filled with classes, ( I taught a class on the showroom floor covering the OnOne Suite of Photoshop plug-ins) portfolios reviews and the Expo opens up with many vendors in attendance showing new products and offering great discounts for the attendies. Day one ends on an upbeat note with a concert put on by Big Electric Cat with none other than Scott himself, his wife Kalebra, Felix Nelson and the band rocking the night away at the house of blues.


Well, I’ve got to run…there are classes to see, work to be done and I have my own class on the NIK creative suite this afternoon. If you are here at Photoshop World be sure to stop by and say hi. If you have never attended Photoshop World you owe it to yourself to come and get those creative juices recharged!

Photoshop World Pre-Con

I’m a couple of days behind but wanted to catch you all up with all that’s happening here at Photoshop World. On Wednesday I crashed Moose & Joe’s pre-conference class…the NAPP Safari.


After spending a couple of hours priming the 65 eager students, we headed out into the desert to a really cool, funky place with some models…



It was a great way to get all primed for Photoshop World.
