Scott Kelby Week
This week has been a busy one. It was ¡Fiesta Renaissance! Weekend at the Carolina Renaissance Festival this past weekend although I was in Uptown Charlotte as part of the World Wide Photo Walk which is put on by Scott Kelby every year. This was the 7th year that he has organized this, but only the first year I was able to partake as I typically end up having to work the weekend it takes place. According to the official website (http://kelbyone.com/photowalk/) there were 1,052 cities participating with 20,057 participating photographers from all walks of life. Definitely check the website linked above for more information on what the World Wide Photo Walk is and how benefits the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya, because I can not do it justice here. Ours was led by Lisa Crates, another NYIP alum, who led a fantastic walk and was a delight to meet.
Tomorrow (Friday, October 17th) I will be getting the chance to meet the man himself as Scott Kelby is coming to Charlotte as part of his "Shoot Like a Pro Tour" (http://kelbyone.com/live/event/141260/). For those of you that are unfamiliar with Scott Kelby, he has written numerous books on digital photography, runs KelbyOne, which has many various trainings or photographers, and runs "The Grid," a live podcast every Wednesday at 4 pm (and available to watch on the web after). I haven't gotten the chance to take part in his seminars yet, but just from talking to a few other people that are going, I simply can't wait.
Chances are if you've seen photos of a Bucaneers home game, you've probably seen some of Scott's stuff. He's a phenomenal photographer, and just from what I've learned by catching "Reruns" of "The Grid" I am beyond exited for this seminar.
