Scott Kelby’s First-ever Worldwide Photo Walk

Personal Testimonial:  In my (Roz Fruchtman) opinion… Anything Scott Kelby does has to be the greatest.  I know Scott since 2000 or 2001 and his live NYC seminars and books have changed my life from “just wishing TO just doing!”

Scott Kelby showed me the things I thought would take forever to learn could be accomplished with a few keystrokes, vision and a bit of learning.  That was all offered in that one seminar — for me.  I had the vision, I just did not know what to do with it.  That one Photoshop Seminar Tour changed my life forever.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GROUNDBREAKING PARTICIPATION FOR THE FIRST-EVER SCOTT KELBY WORLDWIDE PHOTO WALK ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 23
5,500 Photographers – 241 Cities – 43 Countries – Participating on August 23

TAMPA, FL – August 14, 2008 – Scott Kelby and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals
(NAPP) are pleased to announce that as of today, 5,500 photographers from 241 cities in 43 countries have signed up to participate in Scott Kelby’s first-ever worldwide Photo Walk scheduled for Saturday, August 23. The Photo Walks are organized to celebrate the release of Scott Kelby’s latest book – The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers (an update to his earlier world’s bestselling book on Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®).

Registration is free and open to all photographers – amateur to professional – from around the world. Photo Walk groups are limited to 50 participants in each city and advance registration is required. Sponsors of this global landmark event are NAPP
, Adobe , Wacom , CDW , Mpix , Peachpit , Epson , Kelby Training , and Photo Walk Pro .

A grand prize, valued at $5000, will be awarded to the single best overall photo of the day taken from all the Photo Walk locations. In addition, the best photo from the day, chosen by each local Photo Walk leader, will receive a copy of Kelby’s Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers. Prize details available at http://www.photoshopuser.com/photowalk/prizes.html

Kelby’s Photo Walk is a fun, social photography event where photographers get together for two hours, usually in a metropolitan area or a trendy section of a city, to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers. Each Photo Walk has a local assigned leader that chooses the route of the walk and the ending place (a local restaurant, pub or café) where participates will look at each other’s photos from the walk and make new photography friends.

Scott Kelby Makes The Cover of USA Today

Here is the comment I left:  (I meant it all!)

In 2001, right before 911, I attended my very first Photoshop Seminar Tour with Scott Kelby in NYC. He literally “changed the course of my life.”  

About 7-8 years ago I discovered I had a flair for digital design. I started with Paint Shop Pro like most on the web. Found out quickly that Photoshop was the industry standard. Thought it would be a breeze. WRONG!!!

I thought it would take forever or never to learn all the cool stuff people did with Photoshop. WRONG!!!

In ONE DAY with Scott Kelby I learned that “I could learn quickly and that it was all a few clicks away!” IF I could bottle the feeling I had when I left the Jacob Javits Convention Center that day, I would make millions.

It was what Dr. Phil would say “A Defining Moment!” I am a dedicated NAPP Member and in my book: “If Scott Kelby does it, it has to be good!” (sight unseen). I already have my ticket to the June, 2007 Photoshop Seminar Tour in NYC. IF Scott will be there, so will I! Scott Kelby makes a long and tedious day of learning, fun with his humor and Photoshop expertise.

NAPP: Master Photoshop CS2 with Deke McClelland – NYC
Once again the NAPP Photoshop Seminar Tour is coming to NYC.

These tours are recommended for anyone involved with Adobe Photoshop, remotely involed with Adobe Photoshop or “even thinking of becoming involved with Adobe Photoshop.” It is not only an extensive day of learning, but CAN BE an eye opener. My very first seminar tour (with Scott Kelby) in 2001 was what Dr. Phil would call a “definitely moment” for me.

When: Monday, April 3, 2006
