Adobe Lighting MAGIC!!!

Hey Everyone

How’s it going?

Ok so today I just wanted to share something that you may not have seen if you hadn’t been keeping up with all the updates from the recent Adobe MAX conference.

Adobe showcased some new capabilities that they’re working on for adding in to Photoshop and by the looks of things aren’t that far away from being sent through to the Creative Cloud for us all. One in particular that grabbed my attention was the ability to turn your photos from Day to Night and vice verse; especially since recently I posted s video on my YouTube channel showing a technique do something similar [Link]

Anyway this demonstration shows something way more advanced and I think you’ll agree that the results are exciting to say the least…

Exciting times ahead!
Catch you next time,

Scott Kelby weekend: UK Seminar and Photo Walk

Hey Folks

Well all I can say is WOW!!! It’s been an incredible weekend!!!

Starting off Friday morning meeting up with Dave and then into London to catch up with Scott Kelby and Brad Moore for some breakfast before Scott’s ‘Shoot Like a Pro‘ seminar in Westminster.

I’d never seen Scott present this seminar until now but man he killed it! The location was a sell out, full of photographers from all over the country and further afield and the atmosphere was fantastic. It felt so good to be amongst such an enthusiastic and keen crowd of people making the day extra special and giving Scott and Brad such a wonderful welcome.

Saturday was World Wide Photo Walk day and so I headed over to Bath, UK nice and early to meet up with friends for breakfast and then meeting up with everyone joining us for the walk just before 3pm.

Scott was leading a walk in London from 9.30am and we did our best to keep it as a surprise for everyone on the walk that he was then going top be joining us. With a minute to spare Scott, Brad and Dave managed to get on a train from London to Bath and be with us and in time for the group shot:)


We had such a great turnout despite quite a few folks having a few challenges finding parking spaces but nevertheless, persistence paid off and everyone managed to be with us and with the sun making an appearance the day just couldn’t have been better.

My friends Jacob and Marianne Jexmark travelled over from Sweden to join us for the walk and I was totally bowled over when Marianne gave me a present of a mini-me that she’d made…even wearing the same shirt too:)

With the walk ending up at a local bar for us all to chat and socialise, and then in the evening invited out for dinner by Ben Brain (Editor of Digital Camera Magazine) and Chris George (Editor in Chief) from Future Publishing, along with Scott, Brad, Dave it was the perfect end to what has been an amazing few days.

Finally a HUGE thanks to both Scott and Brad for managing to squeeze so much into such a short space of time having arrived on Thursday and flown back to Tampa, Florida on Sunday. You ROCKED it!

Catch you next time,

    Neil Mallett - A good time was had by all, it was great that the sun decided to make an appearance after all and to have the main man, the man behind the WWPW be there along with Brad, Dave, yourself and all those other ‘togs was brilliant, well worth a 300 mile round trip.

    Nerys Osbourn - What a fantastic 2 days. Scott was awesome on Friday – funny, inspiring and an all round nice guy – and he can hold a room like you wouldn’t believe.

    Then on to Bath on Saturday for my first photowalk and it didn’t disappoint. I had no idea what to expect but everyone was really friendly and helpful.

    Thanks to Glyn, Dave, Scott, Brad and the backroom team for 2 wonderful days of photographic fun.

See you Saturday,


Scotland…You’re AWESOME!!!

Hey Everyone

Hope you had a good weekend.

Yesterday I drove to Bath with my Buddy Dave Clayton to finalise the route and a few other odds n’ sods for this coming Saturday’s Worldwide Photo Walk. On that note if you’re one of the group joining me, keep an eye on the official page [Link] over the coming days with more details.

Today though I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the wonderful people of Scotland that I met when I was in Ayr last Thursday evening to give a seminar to the Ayr Photographic Society and folks from all over the West of Scotland.


The evening event was all organised by two gents I’m honoured to have met and able to call friends: Edmund Telford and Graham Taylor.

I was originally contacted a few months back by Graham to see if I would fly up to Scotland and do a seminar and after lots of phone calls and emails the event was full steam ahead.

The friendship, warm, and hospitality was quite overwhelming but in true Scottish form. I had such a blast and we sure had a great turnout for the evening and it was so clear seeing how much work, time and effort had gone into getting the event all set up and for it to run so smoothly on the night.


It was wonderful to see and meet so many people at the seminar and also afterwards at the social. Honestly…since returning home I’ve thought about you all so much and can’t wait to see you again.


I was completely bowled over by the gifts: one being a drawing by attendee Ruairidh and the other a traditional Scottish Cup of Friendship called a Quaich from the Photographic Society with the words “Haste Ye Back” inscribed.

There’s so much I could write but I think you all know how I feel; Scotland holds a very special place in my heart.

I can’t thank everyone enough for making it such a special time and I’ll be sure to raise a glass of the good stuff to you!
