Every year I do a small overview of what the year brought and 2012 has been quite a year…. pffff
Of course there was a lot of bad news but I don’t want to focus on that, let’s keep it all positive and a bit more concentrated on what happened for us, but I do want to say that our thoughts go out to all the people that fell victim to needless violence and forces of nature.
Some of the highlights for me (us) from 2012:
2012 was the year that I finally was asked to do workshops on the main stage at the Adobe theater in Nieuwgein. I’ve been doing the Professional imaging for years now for Fotoflits (the Dutch Elinchrom agent) but never really did the main stage, but in 2012 somehow Adobe decided they wanted me up there. I prepared 9 different seminars but ended up doing only 2 because Adobe NL thought that would be better… well we proved them wrong, the room was PACKED and I mean PACKED, people were standing in the hallways. It was a great feeling because let’s be honest a “home crowd” is the hardest thing to do, but I loved you guys there. Also thanks to the organization I did a Masterclass which was sold out so PI 2012 was a huge success, and of course working with my buddies Drew Gardner and Dave Black is always fun.
Photoshop World Washington
As Larry Becker once told me, the most important and fun days in the year are Christmas, birthdays of your kids/partner and PhotoshopWorld and I can wholeheartedly agree, I always feel like hanging out with family and friends when I’m at PhotoshopWorld it’s just way too much fun and it’s way too short, it’s always over before you know. And even though I’ve been a member of the team for some time now I still feel incredibly honored when I’m teaching on the showfloor or in the rooms, it’s a great ambience.
