+Brian Palmer I concur however I never need to use PS past, present and into the foreseeable future. Likewise if the retail Lightroom is no longer available I be walking away from Adobe. At some point the new features  plying into Lightroom will no longer be what I and I suspect for majority of amateur photographers are must features. After which the motivation to keep feeding Adobe coffers ceases. The most troubling aspect of Adobe's CC subscription model is if you stop paying you can no longer use it to 'develop' even if are no longer interested in whatever new features they add to Lightroom. I hope someone oneday file a class action suit against Adobe against this "hook, line and sinker" strategy.

Please take a moment and check out this post from our friend Jason. 
 
Hardest Post Ive Ever Had to Write....

While the past year brought Six Beats so much closer to being able to produce content for everyone....
(We have a 2nd meeting with a major streaming music service on Monday...and have a major music instrument retailer on board. We even managed to get YouTube to invite us to their studios to house the project. The people who do the books for KISS and Dave Matthews band are setting up the books for Six Beats. We've also begun to align a board of directors after much work trying to find top individuals to ensure Six Beats becomes the gem its meant to. Heck the fund  below was set up by one of my board of advisors....who.. on her companies board of directors sits both Steven Tyler and Rodger Daltery. She is even trying to get Six Beats officially connected to The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. So you see amazing things are happening.)
All that glitters is not gold though.....I've personally hit some very rough times due to health and life-changes. Which have led me to living out of a very unsafe motel with not so much as even a refrigerator.
Im on the track of some work, but Ive much to overcome to ensure I don't sink.
Six Beats and myself are in desperate need of help.
If you can do anything to help.. please do ...sharing helps.
Been a long road and I'm not ready to give up now.
I came crushingly close to the end.. not wanting to reach out to anyone for help. Im a giver...I want to be in a position to connect inspire share and create change. So to ask for help.. especially from strangers.. especially when I said from the get go that the idea is powerful enough that I should never have to publicly fund it as its valuable enough for companies to create and sustain it. Which I still believe to be true...it just takes a little time.
Im humbled in asking you all for help. And Im only marginally comfortable in doing so because I know what I stand to offer in return for the chance to succeed. Otherwise.. truthfully...if there was no Six Beats.. Id probably have just given up all-together.

Just heard the awful news: our friends at @LensProToGo were burglarized this weekend & had over $500K in gear stolen - the full story is over at http://bit.ly/1TonWc5 - My heart goes out to them (and I hope the community at large can help). 
PRESS RELEASE: June 15, 2015 - At 8 AM on Monday June 15, 2015, LensProToGo employees arrived to work to find a smashed window; we had been robbed. We hope they at least got to wear cool Mission Impossible outfits, but we sadly aren't sure of that detail. For those who have current orders placed ...

I just found out that James Taylor (one of my absolute favorites) has a NEW album coming out Tuesday (his first album of all new material in 13-years). Just pre-ordered it on iTunes (if you preorder, you can download three of the songs right now! Here's the link where you can hear the previews: http://apple.co/1FhCq2L. Sounds like classic JT!!!! Whoo hoo! :)

Really awesome guest post from +Stacy Pearsall. If you've got a sec, you'll love it! :)
 

Check out the guest blog I did for Scott Kelby on the Veterans Portrait Project.
A self-portrait of my Veterans Portrait Project location studio set-up. Howdy Scott, Brad, Kelby-crew and readers! Can you believe it's been just over four years since my last guest blog post? So much has happened since then I'd like to share with y'all. But first, I need to extend a thank you ...
