(TAMPA, FL – July 14, 2005) Organizers of the Adobe-sponsored Photoshop World Conference & Expo are pleased to announce that Nikon, Inc. and Canon USA, Inc., two of the world’s most prominent digital SLR camera manufacturers, are both offering pre-conference workshops on Mon., Sept. 6, one-day prior to the conference’s official kick-off on Sept. 7 in Boston.
Continuing a long-standing Photoshop World tradition, Nikon (www.nikonusa.com) offers its half-day Nikon Photo Safari session. This all-time favorite pre-conference workshop is taught by award-winning photographer Vincent Versace and wildlife nature photographer Moose Peterson. An all-time favorite that quickly sells out, Nikon Photo Safari is limited to 50 participants because of the distinctive hands-on teaching approach Versace and Peterson provide.
For the first time, Canon (www.usa.canon.com/html/canonindex.html) is sponsoring its pre-conference “Canon ‘Live’ Studio & Digital Workflow Experience” workshop. During this exciting new workshop, participants will shoot side by side with commercial photographers Jack Reznicki and Eddie Tapp, learning how to set up a “live model” studio shoot and the latest in digital workflow techniques. Limited to just 30 participants, Canon’s new workshop will sell out soon.
Each of these pre-conference workshops requires a separate registration and charge, and are only open to Photoshop World Conference attendees. Especially developed for digital photographers interested in sharpening their skills and learning the latest cutting-edge digital techniques. These workshops are ideal for both professionals and amateurs.
Scott Kelby, conference technical chair, president of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) and the world’s top-selling computer book author, heads up the biggest, most comprehensive Photoshop World Conference schedule (www.photoshopworld.com) and all-star instructor lineup (www.photoshopworld.com/instructor.html) to date.
