If you're within a 500 mile radius of Santa Fe, you should definitely swing over to CENTER for their Portfolio Viewing Friday evening from 5:30 - 8:00. The Viewing coincides with Review Santa Fe, their three-day juried portfolio review featuring 100 photographers and loads of great reviewers. So many of our previous Reviews and CM participants, not to mention Reviewers will be there. Sounds like a blast. Of course if you can't make it in person, you can check out the work of the selected photographers here.
