On Friday of last week I received the news that I had been awarded the title of Adobe Community Professional for 2011.

It’s an absolute honour to be placed amongst this incredibly talented group of professionals and a position I certainly don’t take for granted having first been nominated back in 2009 by Adobe Expert, Trainer, founder of ‘Media Cats‘ (a Digital Media Training Company based in Dallas, Texas) and great friend A.J Wood; a gesture that left me speechless (quite an achievement in itself) by submitting the following to ‘the powers that be’ …

“When I think of an Adobe Community Expert, I think of a group of professionals coming together to share their experiences & talents. I also think about the type of person who has the knack for relating to other people, and generally loves sharing what they know without all the pomp & circumstance. I think of Glyn.

Glyn Dewis is a gifted individual who has taken his love of photography & Adobe products and turned it into a new career. We first met at Photoshop World a few years ago and he was quite the character, excited to be at PSW, taking in all the classes, just soaking up all the information. But Glyn is not the type of person to sit idly by.

In the years that have past he has continued to excel in his craft of photography & Photoshop work. He has quite a bit to share regarding Lightroom, and publishes video commentary on his blog. A person who understands the importance of community, he has led many photowalk outings, including Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk held this past July 2009. Glyn is constantly looking to improve himself & his work, and I admire his dedication & ambitions.

I highly recommend Glyn Dewis for the Adobe Community Experts program not only for his current expertise, but the potential & experience he will share with all of us and his community.”

Anyone who knows me will vouch for the fact that I’m not overly keen on the use of the word ‘passionate’ in a ‘work’ environment. If I’m brutally honest I think it’s overused and really should be taken ‘as read’ if you’re a professional and providing a quality product and service however I’m going to have to relent here; momentarily at least…

Sharing knowledge in the form of tutorial walk throughs, videos and workshops is something I am really passionate about and get alot of satisfaction from on a personal level, so to be recognised by a World Class Organisation/Company for doing so feels good…real good…so a HUGE thank you goes out to Adobe!

Anyway, time to crack on…lots more tutorials, behind the scenes, videos and details on the upcoming Photography & Photoshop Workshop coming up so in the mean time,
Enjoy 🙂

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer, more worthy, more dedicated or more knowledgeable chap than yourself.

    Keep up the astoundingly good work and more reward for your dedication will surely come your way 🙂
