Tickets to WWDC 2014 (Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference) are going to be offered via a random drawing. Anyone interested needs to register before next Monday. They needed to move to a #lottery system because tickets for WWDC 2013 sold out in less than two minutes and in 2012 they sold out before most people on the west cost woke up. #WWDC #Apple

To #Photographers

I found these #PhotographyWorkshops  a fun and great way to learn lighting and posing techniques, among other things. I'll post some of the pics in a few minutes.

From +Rolando Gomez
It's official, we're the first in photography workshops to offer, "Name Your Price." Based on how bad the economy, job losses, government, etc., have impacted millions plus the bittersweet emails we get saying, "I wish I could attend, but...." Bottom line, even my family and I have been impacted so I decided to do something that will help those that are impacted who want to attend a photography workshop.

This is based on the honor system and a first-come, first-serve, it works like this: find any workshop you'd like to attend, whether it's the week-long Costa Rica, Maui, Moab, etc., or a one-day regional workshop and name your "reasonable" price. Then provide me a brief reason why you need that price this one time. Your offer will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and if discounted slots are still available for your selected workshop, we'll move forward at your price.

All reasonable offers are considered with a positive attitude to truly make this happen for you. However, it's limited on how many slots we have for all the workshops as I can only do this for a limited amount of slots per workshop, so it's first-come, first-serve. Please also include your contact information and best time to call. This is a world-wide offer.
 
It's amazing how many people have responded to the "impacted" sale, so we're going to extend it out as a "Name Your Price" sale, something I don't think has ever been done before with photo workshops. It's based on a first-serve, first-come basis until we run out of discounted slots for each workshop. We're here to help! http://rolandogomez.net/clients/sale/
