The MOTHER of all giveaways

We love love love alex michéle photography. We are so excited to be doing this giveaway with her and her awesome fans.

Remember our last SUPER ginormous giveaway? We thought it was pretty much the hugest, coolest giveaway ever. I mean we had actions. We had prop hats. We had prop beds. It was made of awesome! (Am I right here? Can I get an amen?)

Well, forget all that.

We have such a HUGE giveaway going on right now that it blows our last one out of the water.

I am sure it goes without saying that we will be giving away our Everything Pure set. Which, yes, that IS super awesome, we agree. But wait, there's more! If you win, you will get:

1) Our actions. Oh yeah. A set of Everything Pure, which is every action we have for sale. A $100 value.

2) A complete online photography course from MLK Studios valued at $495.

I (Rachel) took this course about 2 years ago, and it was AMAZING. Matthew is such a knowledgable, patient, and involved teacher, I was blown away. I felt like I learned years worth of information in just weeks and I felt totally at home with the more advanced technical aspects of photography and light in general. I loved this course and I feel really honored to get to give a course away to a lucky fan. (If you don't feel you need the class, and you win, you can give this to a friend who you think would benefit from this! But really, I am here to say, Matthew's course can be beneficial to even those who feel the understand photography.) Visit Matthew at

3) Jessica Drossin textures, pack 4 valued at $25.

This is the most recent release of her insanely beautiful textures. We love her textures and use them often. Visit Jessica at Jessica Drossin Textures.

4) Dustin Izatt Photography's album templates valued at over $100.

There are both InDesign templates, as well as Photoshop PSD counterparts. There are 6 design sizes and we use these often. They are very clean, simple, and elegant and allow your photographs to take center stage. You can also add your own embellishments to give them a little pizzaz, but they are lovely even without. Visit Dustin at Dustin Izatt Photography.

5) Picture Me Props is giving away one of her adorable new sleigh props valued at $70. Visit Picture Me Props at Picture Me Props.

I would say that newborn prop bed that we gave away last time stole the show. They are darling, but also well-made and sturdy. These props will give your photos that unique look that will set your studio apart.

6) Lil' Bean Designs will be giving away a $20 gift certificate to her store.

We love love love her hats and other crocheted items. She uses the softest yarn, and is a true artist when it comes to making itty-bitty props. We always get complimented on our gorgeous hats and throws. Love them. Visit Lil' Bean Designs at her website.

Now, I'm sure, by this point, you're asking yourself, HOW do I enter this?

That's a great question.

This giveaway will be going until alex's fanpage reaches 11K fans. So it could go for a weekend. It could go for a month. That's up to you. To enter you MUST fan alex michele photography, as well as Pure Photoshop Actions, and EACH of our AMAZING sponsors.

Once she's reached the 11K fans, we will verify that the winner has fanned all the pages. If they have not, we will select another winner.

Then, post to your own fanpage or personal FB page shouting out alex and Pure Photoshop Actions, and each of these AMAZING sponsors (linking them with an @) and inviting people to enter the giveaway. That's another entry.

But wait?? What's in it for YOU, inviting others to join? Well, it benefits you in 2 ways.

1) Make sure your friend say that YOU referred them, because even if they win, you will win a $40 credit from Pure Photoshop Actions. So, if you get 1000 people to refer you, you have an awesome chance of winning something.


2) If people don't fan alex michele's page, then the contest will go on forever! She already has over 8000 fans. So, it should not be long with so many fan pages contributing more fans.

So right click on these links and fan these pages!!! If you right click and hit open in new tab or window then it won't close this window at all ... and should only take you a minute to fan all the pages :)








Now that you have fanned all the pages, just leave a comment on this blog entry. To make it easier for you, you can just copy and past this but make sure you write who you were refered by. If you were not refered by anyone or found the giveaway because you are already a fan of one of the pages above, just put yourself, and you can give the $40 credit to a friend or family for Christmas or just because!!!

"I am a fan of Alex Michele Photography, Pure Photoshop Actions, Dustin Izatt Photography, Lil Bean Designs, Picture Me Props, Jessica Drossin Textures, and MLK studios photography course! I was refered by"

Now that you have done that.... repost this on your fan page and say that you are entered in a massive giveaway... and that you want them to enter, and say that you refereed them for a 2nd chance to win something!!!!

But what happens if you can't contain yourself and HAVE to purchase our awesome actions before the end of the contest and you win??? We will reimburse your purchase made during the contest. So, don't let this dissuade you from buying from us. (Or any of our vendors.)

Ready...... Set.... GO!!!!!

Oh yes, it's time.

A tilt-shift lens. So cool. So trendy. So stylish. SO expensive.

Well, how about saving a few bucks and hook yourself up with this fun action. You can get that wonderful tight focus on a small area with the amazing blurring of the edges.

It is a mask action, so just paint with a soft white brush along the areas you want to be blurred.

And here is the awesomeness. It is FREE to the first 100 downloads. And really, after that it is only $15. I much cheaper is that than a tilt-shift lens?? I know! It is such a bargain! You could even afford to get ALL our actions with the money you saved. Gosh...what a thrifty day!

Here is a quick tutorial on a few ways to use this action. Both with brushing and gradients. Check it out!!

This free download is now over, but we always like to have little surprises, so it's a great idea to fan us on Facebook.

If it is gone, then head on over to our site, Pure Photoshop Actions, and get the action for $15.
