Finally Friday! (and some weekend nuggets)

Photographer on a Photo Walk

Happy Friday!  As you may recall, last weekend I had a special news post that gave some time sensitive weekend updates.  The same holds true this weekend where there are some great deals to take advantage of, but you gotta act soon!

First up – David Duchemin over at Craft and Vision is offering up his latest eBook release “Forget Mugshots” with a 20% savings through tomorrow only.  Of course, at a regular price of $5, you are saving a dollar…but as the old saying goes, “A penny saved is a penny earned”.  These savings also pass on to collections as well, where you can get 20% off a four pack, or get an entire year of Craft & Vision excellence for only $99.  Details on the site for all the bundles, starting with Mugshots4 as the primary discount code, so visit the website to save and learn today!  Craft and Vision

Second, photographer and writer extraordinaire Joe Farace and I have partnered up to host a free photo walk here in Denver.  Participation is limited to 15 people though, so once all the details are announced, you’ll want to be sure to sign up quick.  The theme for the photo walk is “Macro” and we’ll be holding it at the railroad museum here in Denver the weekend of April 14th – so mark your calendars!  Sign up details will follow next week (hint: Tuesday).

Last but not least, make sure you are registered for the (semi) monthly Newsletter here on the blog – an amazing announcement is coming up very very soon.  I don’t want to spill the beans just yet (although if you listen to the podcast, you’ll have an idea!).  It’s a free deal to get, and gives you insights, scoops, as well as advance (and discounted or free) access to upcoming eBooks that I am offering here on the website.  Can’t say more right now – just sign up for the newsletter if you haven’t already – it’s over in the sidebar!

Other than those nuggets, not much new going on – just been traveling a lot for work, and keeping by planning all of the above – photo walks, work shops, ebooks, and more.  So for now, it’s just time to keep on shooting!  Oh yeah, and have a great weekend!

I’m going on Auto Pilot


After some serious burning of the night oil, I’ve got the last Newsletter of the year ready for release – if you want to get it, the push goes out at 10:30am eastern time.  This means subscribers will also get a sneak peak of the final 5 items on the 25 for $50 gift guide list for 2010.  That final list will be released here on the blog tomorrow with full photos and write-ups of each, so if you miss the newsletter, be sure to stop in on Wed. for that.

The final podcast for 2010 is recorded and in the gates, ready to be run on Thursday too, so this is going to be a week with lots of multimedia and distributions for everyone to download and enjoy as we head into the holiday season.  On that note, I’ll be enjoying the rest of this week off (so no blog post on Friday), and hopefully get the rest of my own family and friends shopping completed in short order.  What is it – ten shopping days left?  If you’ve not started yet, time’s a wastin!

And, oh yeah, one last item to note…Lightroom has had it’s latest update to 3.3, and Camera Raw (for CS5 users) to 6.5!  You can grab the downloads here for Lightroom, and on the Raw Converter the downloads are Windows and Mac specific.

So, on that note, I am going to let the powers of scheduled posts and media distribution do their work while I catch up on a few Z’s and other things!  I will check in periodically for comments, questions, and other feedback items, but for the rest of the week, this baby’s on auto-pilot!  Happy shooting, and we’ll see you next week…..unless of course anyone has any questionszzzzzzzzzzzzzzz?

The Newsletter is Back!

After a hiatus on the newsletter, I thought it might be a fun experiment to bring this back (enough of you have also sent me email asking if it would be coming back ever so thank you for your support)!  However, rather than just putting it out there, I have decided to make this a bonus feature for the email subscription group.  So, if you’d like to receive the newsletter, please let me know by signing up for the free delivery monthly!  Here’s what I hope to include in each newsletter: Read more
