MOGO Media Announces 24HourPhotoshop.com Worldwide Educational Event

24 Hours of Free Online Photoshop, Photography, and Lightroom Courses Led by the World's Top Professional Photographers (Begins November 14, 5 pm EST)

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - MOGO Media, the premier conference and educational provider for creative professionals working with Adobe software, has announced the date for 24HourPhotoshop.com, a global online educational opportunity for Photoshop and photography enthusiasts. Taking place on November 14-15, this unique live event offers 24 continuous hours of free Adobe® Photoshop®, photography, and Lightroom tips, tricks, and techniques with over 100 sessions led by more than 50 professional photographers from around the world. Starting at 5 pm EST (GMT-5) on November 14, the event will be broadcast worldwide with seven concurrent tracks, each broadcasting a new and unique session.

"I have always believed that Photoshop is one of the most inspired pieces of software ever written and is the Digital Photographer's operating system. It is the technology that truly makes the impossible just an opinion," said Vincent Versace, internationally recognized pioneer in the art and science of digital photography whose work is featured in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of American History. "I live, eat, and speak Photoshop and photography 24/7/365 (and Sundays too), so I feel 24HourPhotoshop.com is going to be the place that does not just teach tips and tricks, but will teach how to make magic."

Access to the 24HourPhotoshop.com event is free. However, for those people who don't want to stay up for 24 hours or who cannot be in seven places at once, an "All Access Pass" is currently available for US$199. All recorded sessions will be hosted online and available to view after the event -- providing more than 100 hours of recorded Photoshop, photography, and Lightroom education on demand.
