28 Mar a beautiful system
Last October I shared on Facebook that I was in the market to upgrade to a new laptop. I got more comments on that fb post than any other. Notes from people with great input and sound advice. A number of the comments urged me to reconsider my stance on the PC vs. Mac debate. I am a PC girl (gasp from the creative crowd) and I am not good with learning curves so I just didn’t want to make the switch. I will admit that with all those comments I was beginning to question myself and entertain the options.
And yet, there still was this internal conflict; I have had a very positive relationship with the fine folks at HP for a number of years. We have worked together on a many wonderful projects and I personally have loved my experiences with HP and because of that, I feel very brand devoted. That’s what building authentic and positive relationships with a brand does to a person. It keeps you loyal.
Fortunately, amidst my grappling with the big decision I was able to earnestly and openly discuss it with HP and they shared with me all of the amazing things that the HP ENVY 17 had to offer creative folks like myself. It all looked great on paper but I was eager to get my hands on one. And so, I did. HP sent me a gorgeous, efficient, hard working machine that has changed my life and helped get my systems in place and this year started with a burst of powerful and productive goodness!
In exchange for this godsend of a laptop, HP asked me to document and share my creative process, my photography philosophy, my everyday life. And so, over the last few months I have done exactly that. I am pleased to tell you that my partnership with HP not only provided me with the machine of my dreams, but prompted me to put my thoughts, viewpoint, passions into clear focus.
Very soon I will be sharing some short videos that were born from this creative partnership with HP. I cannot say enough how much all of this has impacted my life. From the logistics of finding the perfect computer for myself (something that fluidly handles all of my images and effortlessly supports all of my creative endeavors) to the opportunity to document all the things that matter to me in my life, this relationship and this project has been pivotal in me finding my rhythm and putting the systems in place for my life right now. I feel so fortunate to have such an excellent opportunity and yet another positive experience with HP.
All that said, I am so eager to share the videos with you! Some of my very best friends in the whole wide world created them for me, with me, and I am so excited. Keep your eye out. They are coming soon.
Sometimes when you least expect it, a creative catalyst comes along and helps you make magic. So, tell me, have you had an opportunity in which the outcome delighted and inspired you?
