Tim – “I would like to thank all those that attended both seminar events. The business class was a mammoth 7 hour session all about business and we had a truly inspired day with amazing feedback from all those that attended with 99% total on that, so that was very nice indeed. The following day we had a new group and took these guys on location to shoot the Porsche 911 S. It was a really great day with many opportunities to demonstrate different lighting techniques and how I use these in real life situations whilst shooting cars both inside and outside. I would like to thank Samuel from Light+Byte as always for helping to make all this happen and without him these events would simply not be the success that they are, also I would like to thank Timo and Daniel for all their assistance during the lighting seminar. Great team effort guys!”

Photographer Tim Wallace is the driving force and creative thinking behind Ambient Life. An award winning photographer his work is often described as both conceptual and dramatic. Tim works internationally with many high end brands and in this business based session he will start by looking briefly at what kind of work he has built his business model on and then move the thought and work process to start to build up a successful photography business and achieve a positive global reputation, positioning yourself successfully within your chosen industry, this is something that Tim is very aware of having built a successful business himself and a respected name within just 7 years from scratch. The session will look at how to make the right informed choices and how to set a clear vision for your own path way to success rather than just ‘hope’ things work out and the phone rings with work for you.

Taking Your Business Forward (Part 2)
Photographer Tim Wallace is the driving force and creative thinking behind Ambient Life. An award winning photographer, his work is often described as both conceptual and dramatic. Class 2 is the second part of a 2 part back to back hardcore Business class by Tim on how to achieve success and think laterally about your brand and direction. This second part to the business session will look at how he gained his initial clients, won contracts and kept his clients as he an them evolved. It will look at how to approach agencies, how to effectively make those first steps and approaches to clients and agencies and most of all and utterly crucially it will be about explaining how to understand your position better within the field and how to put yourself and your work across in such a way that your clients understand your benefits to them and not just that you can take nice pictures. It’s about becoming a monster in your industry and creating a need for what you do and not just sitting there and waiting for the phone to ring.

Live Car Shoot – Pre Con Special Event
Tim Wallace is renowned within the car industry for his car photography for such leading market brands as Aston Martin and Jaguar. This special PreCon event gives you the opportunity to see Tim work with lighting a car as well as work through different aspects of how light can be used effectively for this very difficult lighting subject. Many of the lessons taught and techniques used will translate into other areas too where lighting reflective subjects is involved such as product photography so one not to be missed for sure. This is very much a hands on event where Tim will explain and demonstrate many different aspects of lighting from his personal knowledge gained over years of working within this industry.
*Limited to 40 participants

Live Car Shoot
This live shoot is a condensed 1 hour version of the pre con special event where Tim will do some live lighting setups shooting a car and talk through some of the techniques he uses when he is working commercially as a car photographer for his clients. He will look at some of the lighting positions that can help you get the best results for those that perhaps only have one or two lights as well as demonstrating how to get the most from these lights in some differing scenarios.

Photoshop World is the place to be if your want to learn from some of the top photographers in the World today, all under one roof in this spectacular event that offers 3 days of shows and on stage seminars, get to meet the instructors off stage, special events and parties in the evening and one of the worlds biggest Expo events all in the desert city on Las Vegas. “What happens in Vegas, usually ends up on YouTube!…”

Photoshop World is where creative people from all walks of life come to take part in affordable, hands-on learning that can’t be found anywhere else. Gaining valuable, real-world experience from innovative instructors, while building camaraderie amongst creatives with shared passions. From beginners to experts, teachers to students, hobbyists to professionals, this is place where everyone is invited to share, network and engage in a welcoming community.

The Experience of PSW

Tim – “This was my very first PSW event, Scott had previously invited me a few times to take part but workload ands such like prevented me attending in previous years, this year was totally different and it was great to get involved and be a part of this amazing event. Nothing really prepared me for the sheer scale of the whole event and the location in Las Vegas was within the convention centre of the Mandalay Bay Resort and oh boy what a resort! Mandalay Bay is not only possibly one of the biggest Resorts in Las Vegas but it really is like a little town within itself with everything to hand and was truly the perfect place to host something of this nature that was on such a grand scale.

The first morning we were ushered into our seats at the front of the hall used for the Key Note Opening speech were the instructors and partners are positioned and 15 minutes later the doors opened and the crowds quite literally broke through to get the best seats that they could, it was amazing the energy and enthusiasm of the crowds. The key note itself was a real pleasure to watch and following the official opening we prepared for the first of our classes to deliver that an hour later. I have spoken in many different countries over the years on lighting, photography and business but never to a US audience on this scale and I have to say that I really enjoyed it immensely. The crowds were both polite and very enthusiastic about all the seminars that went on over that 3 days period. The lighting class that I gave on the 2nd day went really well and its not often that you get to drive a sports car through a hotel, which is something that we had to do so that we could get it into place for the live shoot event 🙂
Following the feedback from that live shoot lighting class it has already been announced that from the high demand that in 2015 I will be back in Las Vegas to give more classes and the live shoot event will be making up part of the ‘pre con’ day which occurs the day before the official launch of PSW allowing a select number of instructors to give major time to a reduced and select class of people over a 4 to 5 hour period, this is something that I was very pleased to have been asked to do and it will be great to be able to really get into a lot more depth on the lighting class in 2015 because of this.

car photography

In the final day I delivered my class on ‘Inspired Business’, I knew that this may well be a popular class but nothing prepared me for the scale of that, on the morning of the event we were given one of the largest halls at the convention centre and turn out for that class was the biggest of the entire event for us, it was amazing and very touching indeed for me personally. At the end of each class those attending are asked to fill out a short feedback form allowing them to give their thoughts on the class, its effectiveness, delivery and such like. From the feedback off the Business class we were later told that it had received some of the very best feedback of any class during the entire event and from all the classes given over that 2014 event, as a result Scott Kelby himself made a request that at the 2015 we not only deliver this class again but by request of those attending, we also make it a much longer class and I am currently looking at putting that back to back across a double session for 2015.

Following the excellent and very kind feedback that we received from those that attended the classes over the three day period I was asked to give a speech at the closing ceremony on the final day so once again I was on stage but this time in front of the entire volume of those that had attended the 2014 PSW event. I have to admit I was slightly nervous as the event had I was told attracted over 26,000 people this year, giving it one the highest attendance records in all its history.

On a final note I would like to really say from my heart a huge thank you to the support staff of KelbyOne, these are the guys that work very long hours behind the scenes to make sure that instructors such as myself have everything that we need as well as looking after all the video and audio for each class and event. We made some amazing new friends with the team and I was touched that indeed some KelbyOne guys actually came to attend a few classes themselves between their own duties. The event itself was both physically demanding for those involved with busy days and many after show parties each night, all of which were utterly amazing 🙂 and also gave people like myself a real chance to talk and meet those attending PSW.
Lastly I would say a huge thank you to the other instructors themselves, we met some amazing people on this journey and made some life long friends and we are already looking forward to 2015 PSW in Las Vegas so we can do it all again !”
