I have learned a ton about traveling and travel photography – stuff I will share with you in the four-part webinar. Register here. Cost is $7.

Why KelbyOne is #1 in Combining On-Line Video Training, Live Events and Member Benefits

KelbyOne is #1 when it comes to combining on-line courses and live-learning - and in putting on one of the coolest learning opportunities for photographers: Photoshop World, where I had the honor of being one of the instructors this past week.

Sure, one of the reasons I like these guys is because they did a great job producing the 14 on-line classes I have on their site.

In my classes I show end-result images and behind-the-scenes shots. Here I am showing some Sri Lanka stick fishermen some of the images I took of them with my Canon 5D Mark IV and 24-105mm IS lens.

But then again, the KelbyOne team does a great job on all its classes, taught by the top pros in the industry, many of whom are my friends!

But there's more:

As a KelbyOne member, you also have access to nationwide seminars and Lightroom Magazine and cool discounts.

And don't forget The Grid (airs every Wednesday at 4 PM Eastern), which is a free, weekly KelbyOne on-line program that can help you become a better photographer. It was a blast being Scott's guest a few months ago. Check out the show!

Scott also has an awesome blog, Photoshop Insider.

Here is another reason why KelbyOne is #1: It starts at the top. :-)

P.S. Actually . . . the main reason KelbyOne is #1 in my book: the have cool hats!

The Purist's Guide to Digital Photography

"He was more focused on how to manipulate images in Photoshop rather than teach how to take them in the original form without aggressive manipulation of what did not exist. It starts a bad, non-photographic trend at the club level - driving even more photo purists away."

Preserving Memories From The Bottom of the World

Preserving Memories From The Bottom of the World

When it comes to the image-making aspect of photography, I am nut about a few things: setting the exposure for the highlights (by checking my camera’s histogram and highlight alert) is at the top of the list.

When it comes to downloading and backing up my files, I am a total nut about getting this done, especially when I go to remote destinations, such as Antarctica, South Georgia Island and the Falkland Islands.
