Work Week

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. For me, the entire past week has not been all that exciting. It has, however, been very productive. We are still parked in the Portland area, and I’ve been spending the past several days working on the handbook for my upcoming seminar tour, Photographic Artistry with Photoshop CS6. The handbook is nothing short of a small book, so needless to say, I’ve had my hands full! It’s going to be a good one though, and I hope you’ll come out to see me if I’m headed to a city near you. Click HERE to learn more about the tour.

I’ve also been getting ready for some upcoming travel. This week, I’ll be heading to Iceland to teach a Photoshop class in the country’s capital, Reykjavik. Iceland has always been one of my absolute favorite places to shoot, and because of that, I have been there several times and will even  return again later this year. The landscape is something out of a fairy tale. From waterfalls, to story book horses, to mountains & volcanoes, to quaint chapels by the sea, it’s a photographer’s paradise. If you’re interested in visiting Iceland (and I HIGHLY recommend it) we still have some seats available in my upcoming workshop this August. I’d love to have you join me and experience the magic of the place… and of course learn tons about Photoshop and digital photography. Click HERE to learn more about that trip.

Finally, in just two weeks, I’ll be teaching at Photoshop Week, which is creativeLIVE’s first ever online, live conference. It’s 6 days, 12 instructors, over 40 classes, and best of all… it’s FREE while it’s live. If, however, you would like to be present in the studio audience in Seattle, creativeLIVE is now accepting submissions and you can learn how to do that HERE.

While this week was 99% work, we did manage to sneak out of the bus once and we were glad we did because we found one of our new favorite restaurants! It’s a crepe place called Le Happy in downtown Portland, and it was just excellent. I’m not a huge fan of crepes, and I’m not a vegan, but the demi-vegan peanut tofu crepe was one of the best meals I’ve had… ever. Many of the other crepes on the menu sounded excellent too, so we’ll definitely be making a return visit. The place is located in a tiny old building and the atmosphere is quite charming, both inside and out.

Well, that’s it for this week folks. I’m sorry this wasn’t as exciting a post as some, but productivity is good! More to come!
