News Update – Where's Matt

Hey folks. First, be sure to scroll down and check out the next video post. It’s another one of the Before/After videos and it’s a little different this time.

That said, I wanted to give you a quick “Where’s Matt” update and let you know where I’ll be teaching (at least what I know of) throughout the year.

• First, I’ll be at Photoshop World in Orlando next week. If you’re there make sure you stop by and say hi.

• In April, I’m co-teaching a workshop that I’m incredibly excited about. There’s still a few spots left but they’ll go quick since this is hands on and we’re limiting the number of participants. The workshop is in Arches/Canyonlands National Park. I was there last year and got some of my favorite photos of all time from the trip. But this year we’re doing something really different. Tom Bol is co-teaching the workshop with me. Tom will take us on location to take the class beyond landscapes – we’ll be photographing adventure sports and working with models. We’ll spend a session photographing mountain bikers on the famous Slickrock Trail. We’ll be teaching location lighting techniques including using reflectors, diffusers and TTL flash. I’m really psyched about this one, as I think it brings together a killer location with some really neat adventure sports photos.

• In May (May 26-29) I’m teaching a landscape workshop on the Oregon Coast. I’ve been wanting to get out there for quite a while so I’m excited to finally make the trip. It’s hands on and covers both the shooting and post-processing aspect of photography. We’ll start with sunrise shoots in the field. Then head to grab some breakfast and take a bread/nap. In the afternoon we go into the classroom where you’ll learn the photography workflow as well as have time to work on your photos with me right there behind you helping out. Then we head out for another sunset shoot to cap off the day. Again, its limited and pretty full but you can find out more details and snag some of the last spots here.

• On August 30 – Sept. 3 Photoshop World heads to Vegas again and I’ll be there with some brand new classes.

That’s all I know about for now, but things will definitely change as new seminars come up. I’ll be sure to keep you posted here as things get added. Thanks for giving me a minute. Now check out today’s latest Before/After video.
