Guy Gowan 1 Day Tutorial for Boards

Some of us attended Photofest yesterday and got a first hand chance to see Guy Gowan in action showing how to get the most out of CS3, Bridge and other apps. I think we would all agree it was very valuable ... (lads please post your opinions here for the rest of the gang to see ...)

MikeyAnywhere was so impressed he forked out €180 for his DVD's ...

For the rest of you all we have is a link to his, half built, web page -
http://www.etipsntricks.com/

In case you don't know who he is .. he is one of the people who Adobe consult when they are designing CSx ... There is also a video at -
http://www.apple.com/uk/pro/techniqu...haperture.html

He is pioneering non invasive techniques to get to most from your images ... (e.g. dodging and burning without using the dodge and burn tools in CS3) ... he has a very good way to make things seem easy to understand...
I think it would be extremely valuable to bring Guy over to Dublin (or hook it on to one of his many trips) for a full day session with the boardsies ... the cost is a bit on the expensive side so we would need numbers ...

Total cost is €1,500 for a full day plus expenses

Ok ... this may seem a lot but if we can line up 30 people is will be about €40-€50 each (I estimate) ...

So who is (in principle) interested, please vote above ... if numbers are big enough ... I'll follow up ...

I'm willing to pay around €100 for this and can be confirmed as a definate. I just about remembered his mono conversion and tried it out last night. Very impressed.

Oh yes please!

I'd go, but it'd have to be more like €50 before I could justify it TBH.

... please, please, please vote in the poll ... if this thread gets a bit on the long side I'd want to have to pick out the information from it ...

I'll only proceed based on reaching critical mass and this will be judged purely based on the poll ...

Hi ... there is a chance to book into a pre-existing seminar for €100 -

http://web.mac.com/etnt.ie/iWeb/etnt...0Workshop.html

This one is on 22nd June at NCAD ... places are limited but keep the votes coming ... Perhaps a better approach is to negotiate a group rate or ask them to extend into Saturday for a boards session ...
