Meeting Scott Kelby - The Godfather of Photoshop

Brian Rodgers Jr. and Scott Kelby at his "Shoot Like a Pro Seminar" - Chicago 2013

Meeting Scott Kelby - The Godfather of Photoshop

This is actually my second encounter talking with Scott. I first met him at one of his live seminars in Indianapolis back in 2011. This snapshot was taken at his Shoot Like a Pro seminar in Chicago this year. Scott is definitely one of the most sincere, hilarious, and inspiring people I have met in my life. Scott redefined education for me. He opened my eyes and really showed me how fun it is to learn. In my opinion, he is living proof of the American Dream; that working hard, loving what you do, and treating people right can lead to great things in your life. Upon accomplishing all the things he has accomplished, he remains an extremely humble man; which is very respectable. 

Always cool talking with Scott. He has taught me things far beyond my Photoshop skills. If you ever get a chance to see one of his live seminars, DO IT! Thanks Scott :)
