Win a Free Ticket to the Lightroom 3 Live Seminar!

This week I’m starting a 5 city tour of the Lightroom 3 Live seminar from Kelby Training. First I head to Phoenix, then on to Indianapolis, Tampa, Arlington and finally Philadelphia. This is an absolute fantastic chance to come out and learn Lightroom from the ground up. I even recorded a quick video about the day that you can watch below.

But… I wanted to give you a chance to win a free ticket to the seminar. So here’s the deal. Leave a comment with the city you’d like to attend the seminar in (here’s the dates of all the seminar stops) and I’ll pick 1 winner for each city later today.

HINT: I’m running a similar contest over on my Google+ page. If you add me to your circles and leave a comment on the post there, you could actually have two chances to win a ticket ๐Ÿ˜‰

Good luck and I hope to see you there! Oh and as always… if you are attending make sure you come up and say hi. I always love to hear from friends of the blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    someone with some originality!

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who has been doing a little homework on this.

    And he actually bought me breakfast simply because
    I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this topic here on your site.

    I’d really like to understand Lightroom more. I’ve messed around with Aperture and Lightroom before. I just feel there is more to Lightroom that I am missing. When you come to Philly, it’d be nice to be able to go.

    I’m really confused about the importing process and how to start off using light room and photoshop the right way. This would really help me. I would love to attend your training in Tampa:) Loving this blog, too. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

    Well, crap, whatda’ ya’ know….

    I was the girl who made the ever so not nice comment on FB about how I wish I never woulda’ spent the money on LIGHTROOM3 because there wasn’t a single soul in my area who could help me get started with it (you commented on it). ๐Ÿ™‚ Pffft! Well, there still isn’t. And while I’ve *cough* experimented with it all, (even spent a day with Kelby Boy going over it in St. Lucia prior to buying it), I’m pretty SURE it’s safe to say I’ve farked something up. Heck, I can’t even remove photos from it anymore.

    While I’m 100% sure it’s user error, (I went really, really blonde over the summer), I’d like to think I got my money’s worth. If there is any chance in hell you have an extra ticket lying around that you’d LOVE to give away for this Friday’s class in Indy, I’d be happy to use it wisely. If not, I might have to sell my Kelby autographed LIGHTROOM3 book on e-bay to recoup some of my loss. GASP!

    What a better reason for a road trip to Arlington and a day off of work! Would love to make it! Thanks for the chance, you’ve already taught me a lot!

    Matt- I have not yet purchased my ticket to the Indy show, actually have to wait and pay at the door, gotta love the economy. I am finally getting serious about my photography, have bought several books and am on I am looking forward to seeing you this Friday! Thank you so much to you, Scott, and the rest of the Kelby team for making this learning curve so much fun! See you Friday!! Matt

    I’m in Tampa and would love a chance to attend–teacher’s salary doesn’t leave much for these great experiences! Thanks for offering.

    I would LOVE to spend Dec. 1st in Philadelphia, listening to you tell me what you know about LR3!! It seems every time I read a tutorial, or watch a video, I learn something new!

    Thank you!

    I just got the day off for Nov 2nd in Tampa. I would love to go to the class!!! I also can’t wait to sign up for kelby training. I just got an email today and it came highly recommended. I will bring peanut butter pie from you know where. Ok, maybe I won’t be able to get it that early for class. take care, jewels

    I attended your “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it” seminar in Orlando and would love to drive to Tampa for the Lightroom 3 Live Tour. Baby needs a new pair of shoes!

    Finally the amazing LR tour will be in Philadelphia. It would be a true honor to see (or possibly meet) in person one of the Photoshop guys, experience and be a part of this fantastic seminar !!!

    I don’t drive to Indianapolis too often, I live in northwest Indiana, but I’d definitely make the drive for this! I love my Lightroom, but I just know the basics, It would be great to learn more about it!! I wish I could afford to buy a ticket, I’d be there for sure!!

    Arlington .. great place .. right in the middle of Fort Worth art museums and Dallas’s, then there’s a night time shot of the Dallas skyline .. worthy a drive up there

    Hi Matt, I’ve been eyeing your seminar in Arlington since it was announced. I would love to come!

    Thanks for the chance,

    I already have a ticket for the Indianapolis seminar. Any chance of maybe using ticket price as credit towards any purchases at seminar if I’m chosen?

    Well, you didn’t have an autographed copy of Compositing when I met you at the Bass Harbor lighthouse two weeks ago so here’s your chance to redeem yourself.

    I’d love to see you in Philly.

    Missed Scott when he was in Indy. Missed Flashbus tour in Indy. Now I finally have a chance to see you in Indy. Would love to go to the Indy stop.

    I would love to attend your seminar in Tampa. I have been to several Kelbt training events in Tampa and each one has been awesome. I have lightroom along with Photoshop but I don’t use them together. I would love to learn an awesome workflow between the two. Thanks!

    Would love to attend your Arlington,TX event in hopes to become more proficient in using Adobe Lightroom and figure out why my prints come out so muddled using customized .icc. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    I have been all over the place, begging, I think, for a ticket to your Phoenix , seminar., would love to attend with my daughter, we have been struggling with CS5 and still have the wrapper on the lightroom, learning here in Tucson is not easy unless you teach yourself , Would love if you would come to Tucson ,sometime!! Really Tucson is cooler, and prettier then Phoenix,

    I would love to come to the Tampa Lightroom 3 Live Seminar and learn to become more proficient at Lightroom.

    I would love to go to the Tampa seminar to learn more about Lightroom 3! Thanks for this opportunity Matt.

    (Wrong blog post first time. I know how to post on blogs. I really do. >_<)

  25. Marlo Williamson 25 October, 2011 at 12:39 Reply

    I’d love to come to the Philadelphia venue to learn from Matt all that he knows about LR3. Pick me please.

    Don’t enter me as I’m not near any of the currently scheduled cities (hey, when are you coming to Seattle?) but you might mention to your video team that it’s spelled “seamless”.

    Hi Matt.

    Thanks for offering this opportunity. If selected, I’d like to attend the seminar in Philadelphia (the closest you’ll get to DC).

    I would love to attend the Indianapolis seminar. It would be a chance to polish my (much needed) Lightroom skills on the images I captured in New England. Days spent in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire were not enough to get me to the level of a beginning Photoshop Guy.

  29. Steve Jones 25 October, 2011 at 10:15 Reply

    Hey Matt, I have already purchased my ticket to your Indy seminar, but you can always hook me up with some goodies from the Kelby Training Store; I wouldn’t mind a copy of your Layers and Compositing books.
