First off I just want to say a huge thanks to everyone who commented, tweeted, posted on Facebook, Google+ and emailed yesterday following my Guest post over on Scott Kelby’s blog; it’s very much appreciated and means a heck of alot that people related to it.
In the post I mentioned about when Zack Arias released his Transform video and it was like ‘Thank God…finally someone is telling the truth!’ and knowing that I wasn’t the only one who had feelings like this made a huge difference to me and was definitely one of the turning points.
So for today I just want to share Zack’s Transform video with you which I make a point of watching maybe once a month. So if you’ve seen it before or if you’ve not I urge you to take 9 minutes and 49 seconds out of your day to do so; powerful, honest and very moving.
I’m really excited and honoured to have been invited to be today’s Guest over on Scott Kelby’s Blog [Link]
Following in the footpaths of some of my Photography & Photoshop hero’s there was always the question of what would I write about. So, I decided to focus on something that eluded me for quite some time i.e. What am I? and Who I am? when it comes to my Photography and Photoshop and also ‘Style’ or to be more specific ‘How do you get one?’
It’s an honest account of how I started out, the excitement, the frustrations and numerous tips and advice I’ve been given that has helped and continues to help along the way in this wonderful creative industry.
Huge thanks to both Scott Kelby and Brad Moore for inviting me onto the blog…it means a heck of alot!
Hope you like it,
I’ve just seen this video shared by my dear friend Keith Trayling over on Facebook and just had to post it here.
I won’t explain the video but rather let you just watch it. It’s a little over 3 minutes long and carries a couple of very powerful messages: NEVER Give Up and that there are ALWAYS people there for support!
Congratulations to Kevin who was picked by our highly sophisticated random number generator (me with my eyes closed) and will be receiving his FREE copy of this killer new book in the next few days.
If you haven’t yet ordered a copy for yourself I seriously recommend it. How often do you find yourself in locations where the lighting is ‘interesting’ to say the least? As photographers that’s pretty much a common occurrence right? The question then is how on earth does Alan Hess consistently turn out the kind of images he does when he’s faced with such challenging environments? Well you’ll find the answers in this book; no secrets, nothing held back…just full of priceless tips, tricks and techniques!
Friday already so I thought I’d leave you with a bit of news and a couple of updates as we head into the weekend:
Frizoo Ok so to let you know what’s happening…
All the details of those folks who are very kindly reviewing and testing the App have been sent to the developers Analysis21 and have now added you into the release. I’ll be sending out the Frizoo App in the next few days along with a very short video introduction but as for when it’s going to be released into the App Stores we’ll just have to wait for Apple to clear everything which hopefully won’t be too long now. So once the reviewers have had a play we’ll be able to submit it…exciting times
You can keep up to date with how things are progressing and the launch date over on the official Frizoo Facebook Page [Link]
Photoshop World App Talking off Apps, if you’re going to Photoshop World in Washington DC next month and have an iPhone / iPad the official Photoshop World App has now been updated with the Class Schedule…of which there’s loads!!!
There’s still some more details yet to be updated such as some Instructor bio’s and class descriptions as is on the website but the class names and the tracks they’re in are all there to see. So if you’re going and you have an iOS device it’ll definitely be worth downloading this FREE App to help you plan what classes you’re going to go to, where they are and at what times so you don’t miss a thing
