I LOVE that! part 1: PSEP

I often find it hard to pin point what I want to write about. You could throw subjects at me all day long and I could come up with something...but ask me to come up with it off the cuff is so difficult! I don't want to bore my readers. I don't want this blog to become like a diary, all about how cute my kids are and what I made for dinner last night. I equally don't want this blog to become cold,clinical, and 100% business. I am a vibrant creative not a suit and I need that to show!
 For the next few posts  I figured I'd share what I love. These people or products are part of what I aspire to be or help me thew what they do to be all that I can,am, and dream to be!

1) The Photographic Society of  El Paso.
This group is amazing! PSEP has been featured on the locally popular webpage, 915 lifestyle that highlights  entertainment, events,and eateries in El Paso .http://www.915lifestyle.com/index.php/out-n-about/events/item/156-psep-meet-123112

They do have a Facebook,http://www.facebook.com/pselp but it's forum is  private. They are a group of photographers, models,MUA,hair stylists,and fashion designers that collaborate together and trade their service to benefit all involved. The group has all skill levels as members from the fresh start-ups with a ton to learn to the seasoned pros. The have an organized shoot once a month and it is a great portfolio builder and networking event.

Here is a youtube video of one of the meet-ups. I missed this one because I was out of town for the holidays.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpLA8HB1FD4

Outside of just the portfolio building there is a wealth of information that these gracious people share freely and selflessly. I fell in love with photography long before we got to El Paso, but these people have helped me grow as an artist considerably.Long after I leave El Paso I will be singing this wonderful groups praises.
