"Complaining about AI won’t make it go away. It’s time to embrace and enjoy it or watch it run over you," says Scott Kelby

If you had to describe Scott Kelby’s career in one word, it would be prolific. He’s written over 100 books and is best known to many as the CEO of KelbyOne, one of the most comprehensive online training platforms for photography and image processing. And yet the qualities that stand out when speaking to Scott (or reading one of his books) are his warmth, humility, and sense of humor. 

To illustrate all of these qualities, Scott will be appearing at The Photography & Video Show in Birmingham, UK next week from March 16-19, with not one but 5 talks and several book signing sessions. But he hasn't always been taking photos, as I recently found out.

He's currently working on a new book called Crush The Composition that looks at photographic composition outside of the typical rules.
