Win a Free Ticket to the Lightroom 4 Live Seminar!

This month, I’m kicking off my Lightroom 4 Live seminar tour from Kelby Training. First I head to Minneapolis, then on to Los Angeles, Chicago, and Lansing, Michigan. If you’ve been wanting to finally figure out how to work Lightroom into your photography this is a fantastic chance to come out and learn it from the ground up. I actually just got done (today as a matter of fact) updating the workbook for the event (yes, you get a workbook with everything so you don’t have to scribble notes the whole day). It gave me the chance to go through and tweak/add all those little things that I found gave people trouble the last time I taught the seminar. Plus I added all of the new stuff for Lightroom 4 (like the new Books module and all the new Develop module sliders).

Okay, now that I’ve got all the promotional tour pimping out of the way, 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.

• Minneapolis: Monday April 23rd
• Los Angeles: Thursday April 26th
• Chicago: Monday April 30th
• Lansing, MI: Monday May 21st

Here’s the link to find out more about the entire day and sign up. 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 🙂

    603-hectares іn Southern Yunnan. Ιt is marked by
    spectacular terraces tɦat cascade doաn thе slopes of tɦе towering Ailao Mountains tօ
    the baks of the Hong River. Oᴠer thе past 1,300 years,
    thе Hani people have developed ɑ complesx ѕystem of channels to
    bring water from tһе forested mountaintops tο thе terraces.

    Tһey hаνe alsߋ ϲreated an integrated farming ѕystem that invvolves buffalos, cattle,
    ducks, fish ɑnd eel and supports the production of red rice, the area’s primary crop.

    Тhe inhabitants worship tҺe sun, moon, mountains, rivers, forests
    аnd othner nagural phenomena including fіrᥱ.
    They live in 82 villages situated Ьetween tҺе mountaintop forests аnd the terraces.
    Тhe villages feature traditional thatched “mushroom” houses.
    Тhe resiilient land management ѕystem of tɦe rice terraces demonstrates extraordinary
    hrmony Ƅetween people and theіr environment, boh visually ɑnd ecologically, based оn exceptional and long-standing social ɑnd religious structures.

    I’m the founder and organizer of a photography club here in Toronto, Canada. My club has close to 800+ members and growing. A mixture of amateur, semi-professional and Professional Photographers. If you ever plan on doing this all day seminar here in Toronto. Send me an email, and we can work something out with my club members. Would be happy to have you here.

    Hey Matt I’d like to check out the seminar in Lansing Michigan. If I don’t win when will it be posted on Kelby Training to sign up? The last date that I see is for Chicago.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    Matt ! I don’t see any tickets for a Seminar in Tampa ? That should be either the Start or End Seminar for the American Tour ! Just a thought ! Be safe out there Buddy !

    Hopefully not to late to get this in, Matt! I’d love to attend at the Lansing, MI seminar. After aborted efforts to use LR2 and LR3, I’m really seeing the benefits of LR4.

    didn’t seem to work the first time so I’m trying again because this very important to me – sorry if I’m being overzealous . . . NOT!

    There once was a genius instructor named Matt,
    Who picked me to win! How’s that?!!!
    Had a smile on all day, as I drove to LA,
    And got Lightroom 4 down pat!

    (Sorry about the duplicate, Matt, but like a few other posts, my original comment doesn’t show up. Plus it gives everyone another opportunity to read about the genius instructor!)

    I would love love love a ticket to any of these three: LA, Minneapolis or Chicago. I would have to fly regardless which isn’t a problem at all, so all three are accessible.

    Pick me for L.A.
    Though Shakespeare clearly I’m not
    I’ve heard your seminars hit the spot
    L.A.’s the place for fun and play
    Hope you enjoy your stay.

    LA all the way…..to LA….that didnt sound right. I would love to attend the Los Angeles seminar and as a matter of fact, in exchange,I would photograph the event AND post process them for free =).

    As a bonus I can use the book module to create a photo book of the event, during the event, live and in living color. Free, Gratis, nada, TF work, because I’m such a great guy.

    I have just gotten LR 4 after many years with PS- I really could use a soup to nuts on how to use it! I get something and it creates more questions…and I find you so easy to follow in all your tutorials. Luck would have it that I am spending the weekend in St. Louis (I live outside of Philly) so CHICAGO would be a great stop for a day…. maybe it’s a sign.

    Yippee!! Lansing – YES! Thank you for coming to Lansing, it’s so much better a venue than Livonia.

    Maybe the Lansing Convention Center can provide a listing of area eateries for lunch this time – for the out of town guests. I’m local, but I know some were not able to get their food quickly at the ‘in-house’ grill during Scot Kelby’s last visit.

    And yes, I’d love a free ticket.

    Hi Matt,

    I’d love to attend the seminar in Los Angeles. I just switched from Aperture 3 to Lightroom 4 and I’d love the opportunity to learn Lightroom from you!

    Thanks so much to you and all the guys at Kelby for your great work!

    Hi Matt! I’m looking forward to this tour! Lightroom 4 is a nice upgrade, and you are probably the best person to learn the ins and outs from. I would like to go to the Minneapolis event – Lightrooms home. 🙂

    I would like to attend the Minneapolis LR4 seminar. I think I could learn a lot about LR4 and the photography business in general. The MN Twins are in town that Monday playing the Red Sox. You should checkout Target Field, it’s pretty sweet!

    Scott, I would be honored to attend the show in Los Angeles! I have Lightroom 3 & I’m still very “wet” behind the ears and “thristy” to learn…. Pick Me, pleaase 🙂
