Texas Nature & Environmental Photographers (TexNEP) welcomes you, the members and guests, to hear Ruth Hoyt, professional nature photographer and TexNEP’s founder, as she presents her brand-new program, “Photography = Painting with Light.”

Ms. Hoyt spends most of her time as a photographer, teacher, workshop leader, writer, public speaker and consultant. She has been teaching photography for more than 25 years and plants to show and share how she “paints” with light to make her work stand out from everyone else's.

TexNEP conducts its meetings on the third Thursday of the month. The November meeting is to be held at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 17th. Meetings are held at the new headquarters of the McAllen Public Library, 4001 North 23rd Street (Nolana and 23rd).

There is no admission charge and the public is invited to attend. Participants are encouraged to bring up to three photos to show and share at the meeting. Images that can be shown on a digital projector are preferred, but prints are also welcome.

The TexNEP November field trip is set for Saturday, November 19th and will be discussed at the Thursday meeting.

TexNEP members range from the professional to the newbie who are interested in nature photography. We welcome film and digital shooters. Programs each month feature a guest speaker and a chance for members to share and discuss their images with others. Also each month a selected member will display images from one of their favorite places. Field trips are planned on the weekends after the Thursday meetings to one of the many Rio Grande Valley photo hotspots.
