Be My Guest at Photoshop World 2016 in Las Vegas…
I can’t even begin to put into words how much of a positive impact attending my first Photoshop World had on me back in September of 2006.
I’d recently joined the N.A.P.P. (National Association of Photoshop Professionals), now KelbyOne, and was hearing and reading a lot about this huge conference in the USA; a full on 4 day Photoshop Love Fest. So, on complete and utter blind faith I paid for my ticket, booked my flights and headed out to Las Vegas; my very first time to the USA and on my own.
I didn’t know what to expect other than it was going to be big and yeah was a little apprehensive about being there on my own. However, those feelings very quickly subsided no sooner had I arrived and was in line to register. I was greeted by a great guy who became a very dear friend, Todd Mills, who is sadly no longer with us. Todd was the best of hosts, we met so many other folks, attended so many classes over the 4 days and went to all the social events that were laid on for attendees too; we totally immersed ourselves and had a blast!
Who’d have thought that learning could be so much fun? Attending classes by some of the best in the business; people like Scott Kelby, Bert Monroy, Ben Willmore, Deke McLelland and many more was incredible but even more so was the time they all gave to attendees during the 4 days. Quite unlike anything I’d been to previously, it seemed like every corner you turned you’d see one of the instructors chatting with groups, and not just quick chats but real quality time.
Fast forward to 2012 and I received the call from Scott Kelby for me to now become one of the Instructors at Photoshop World; an honour I still have to pinch myself about to be teaching amongst my industry and life heroes such as Scott Kelby himself, Joel Grimes, Joe McNally, Bert Monroy, Ben Willmore, Alan Hess, Dave Black, Jeremy Cowart, Corey Barker and so on… But more so than that, being able to call these folks friends is more than I could have ever wished for but proves beyond any doubt that it’s not just the learning but the association, networking and friendships you build at Photoshop World that make such a difference…it really is a unique experience.
