Free Photography Class With KelbyOne

A few months ago I traveled to Scott Kelby’s HQ in Florida. I was asked to come down so that we could shoot my very first class as a KelbyOne Instructor. For those of you who are not familiar with who Scott Kelby is- or what this KelbyOne I speak of is- I’ll tell you. Scott Kelby is firstly a photographer- but in addition to that he does a lot of other things. Such as let me drive his Tesla very quickly down a street after dinner. No, but really- he is in charge of Photoshop User Magazine, Photoshop World, and KelbyOne. I have met him prior at Photoshop World when his old assistant Brad Moore was nice enough to invite me out- but this is my first time actually working with him. Well, I did this guest blog once, and it is so old I have hair – but this was Brad’s doing as well (thanks Brad).

Scott has created this amazing online library of tutorial videos. I would say almost any topic you can think of, and a few you would have never thought of- he has covered. What he lacked was a bald man teaching people about the internet and how to get involved in the music industry. Lack no more, for we have created a video! It took two long days of filming. The class is 43 minutes in total, but I would say it took 5 minutes for every minute. Enunciating words, speaking with acceptable grammar, while simultaneously trying not to make too many too many goofy faces; It is not an easy task. IMG_3304

Shooting the episode was difficult. I stood in this room for about 5 hours, two days in a row. They were shooting with two cameras and I would look at my notes, memorize a section, and then say it to the camera. Some of the sections I know pretty well and had them memorized, but others I had to refer to notes or I would get lost on some random not very concise tangent.

The wonderful video men

Brandon and Adam were the two guys in charge of the cameras. Then we have Jennifer who arranged the whole project. I was pretty nervous for this whole ordeal. Mostly it was the unknown- I had never done this in such an official setting, nor had I done it with other people watching. I am used to YouTubing in my living room with non-judgmental Mark. Looking back I couldn’t have done it without them. I mean of course we need them to man the cameras, direct the class, and arrange it. But it was how they helped me on a personal level that I really appreciated. Like I said, this was nerve-wracking for me, and before each take they helped me think of ways to remember all of the content, and assisted me in finding methods to help everything flow naturally. They are good people doing what they have a passion for in life and it really shows when you work with them.

Here is a quick preview of the class –

After I was all done filming, Scott had me on his show The Grid. Honestly, I embarrassed myself, but there is some good information scattered throughout the episode as well.
