Where's Matt – Teaching Update

Hey folks, here’s a quick news update since I just finished teaching a workshop primarily on Lightroom and I figured I’d let you know where I’ll be teaching for the rest of the year. There’s another post today (another free preset) so feel free to scroll to the next post if you’re not interested in this.

Thank youI just wanted to say a great big huge thank you to everyone that came to my Great Smoky Mountains workshop this past weekend. We had a fantastic time and I made some really friends along the way. It was great getting to know all of you and the laughs we shared will stick with me for some time to come.

I also wanted to thank my friend Alessandro, from the workshop, for leaving such a nice comment here on the site. Here’s a peak if you’re interested. He totally made my day I can’t tell you how cool it is to see that I’ve helped people out like that. Thanks Alessandro (your pay off check is in the mail 😉 ) and thanks to the whole class for a great weekend!

Coming Up
OK, here’s where I’ll be for the rest of 2008 in case you’re thinking of coming out to a workshop or conference.

• May 5-6 – New York City: I’ll be teaching some Lightroom sessions at B&H photo on these two days. They’re totally free and you can find out more as well as register right here.

• Tuesday June 3 – Philadelphia, PA: I’m not sure about the details yet but I’m teaching a session for a CDW event (that is open to the public) that morning. I’ll update with details as they become available but I’ll definitely be there.

• August 9-16 – Hawaii Cruise: I’m teaching along side Dave Cross, Moose Peterson and Laurie Excel on a week long cruise through Hawaii. Folks, if you can make it out to this (I know it’s a stretch) it will be one amazing week.

• September 3-6 – Photoshop World Las Vegas: This is my favorite event of the year. It’s a 3-day Photoshop Love-Fest and hosts the best instructors in the world all in one place.

• October 15-18 – Bar Harbor/Acadia Natl. Park, Maine: This is another workshop for the Great American Photography Workshops (just like the one I taught in the Great Smokies last weekend). I’ve been to Bar Harbor before and I liked it so much that I’m going back. Sign up soon though. This is a hot spot for workshops and this one will definitely fill up.

That’s about it for now. I know there’s some more Lightroom training that I’ll be doing toward the end of the year but I don’t have the specifics yet. I’ll update here on the website as soon as I know. Thanks and I hope to see you out.

    Hi Matt, I’m a psychologist in Canada and got Lightroom shortly after it was published and a year after getting a DSLR. I keep up to date by checking 5 sites daily 1) Lightroom News 2) Your site 3) Michael Reichmann’s Luminous-Landscape 4) Nikonians and 5) the Digital Photography Show. Thanks for everything you do to promote this interesting hobby. Your videos are great. Best wishes.

    Hi or should I say Hey Matt
    You guessed it I’m Canadian. I’ve been to some of your classes at PSW Orlando and enjoyed them.
    I looked at your 2008 schedule and unfortunately I can’t be there during those dates :-(.
    I just had a thought why don’t you come up here north of the border hmmm say Canada and do a seminar or two and maybe do some photography workshop. It would be Great.
    Love for you to do a Lightroom seminar.

    As always thanks for a great web site.

    I’m looking forward to selectively trying out your preset – thanks. I don’t know if I have faith in applying it on import, but then again it’s from you and I know I shouldn’t doubt 🙂 . Thanks!
