I LOVE participating in professional organizations and I love what they have to offer! I am part of the Professional Photographers of America (http://www.ppa.com/). And their monthly magazine alone is worth the membership! I am also part of the local guild, the Professional Photographer’s Guild of the Palm Beachs (http://www.ppgpb.com/) and we have monthly meetings which have so far been awesome! Tonight we had a seminar taught by a Tampa photographer Brian C. Idocks and he was awesome! Totally nice guy and his fiancee was great. They were both super down to earth! You can view his work here: http://www.briancidocks.com.
Anyway, just had to share how much I love it all!
