Every industry has their "rock stars"... I worked at a hedge fund for a long time. There are "rock star" HF managers. I don't know if they call themselves that, but they exist. True rock stars don't want to be known as rock stars. I told Jeff Newsom he was a rock star and I was his groupie. He kept trying to deny it, but I kept saying, "No, no! I really am your groupie!"

The term Rockstar is absolutely amazing - we just take wedding photographs, no one outside of other people who take wedding photographs give a sh**. That's like saying my girl Sally is a real rockstar mortgage broker.


Well Sally IS pretty kickass.

I know Adam Forgione, so I think I should forward this to him. He may already know about it.

Funny Jeff Newsom was mentioned in this thread.

LOVE the guys work but isn't his I Make Gold Records a copy of someone elses work?

I've read that he doesn't give out clues on how to do it either.

I thought it was an ex-alcoholic from Australia that came up with that one...

Photographers are weird.

I met Jeff...went to one of his one-day workshops. I have never heard him claim that he invented the process. I have seen quite a few people do it over the years, so the process is nothing new. He definitely does show how he does it...he did it with 10 of us right there. He is one of the least pretentious photographers I have ever met, and I cannot imagine him presenting much as if it was truly "his."

It's not just fame that is intoxicating, it's the cash from a big Creative Live payday followed by additional software/how to sales from one's own website.

Joel, I sure he is a top bloke but this is what I read just a couple of days ago before this thread.

Maybe its an inside joke, I dunno.

Below is for reference.

I know a guy who attended Jeff's workshop and the attendee had nothing but great things to say about the experience.

Likely an inside joke, it probably just an LED on a string, similar to the Steel Wool lightpainting stuff.

It must have just been a thing where the people did not want to give away his "secrets" without you paying for the course. He definitely was not shy to show the technique to those who attended the class...likely because he knows that he is doing the same thing that has been done by others.

Thanks, I realized he did. But he's a friend of mine, we've worked together and even did a podcast together, so I wrote him anyway.

I would imagine that to be quite true
