Portfolio Review Session: Perhaps the most valuable learning experience for an emerging photographer, portfolio reviews allow you to present your work to an established professional, engage in a conversation about your work, ask questions, find out what’s working and what’s not, and gain invaluable feedback that will set you on the right course.
Having a truly productive portfolio review is about more than just showing up, plan to actively participate in the process, ask questions, don’t let the reviewers do all the work. Be open to constructive criticism and be ready to listen, give no excuses.
We are delighted to see our portfolio review sessions filling up. It's no wonder with our outstanding and international award winning reviewers.
What to Bring: Be ready to take notes. Your portfolio can be presented on an iPad, laptop or a beautifully printed portfolio. Display your best work but be ready to show unedited files if the reviewer requests it.
Portfolio Reviews from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m Included is a one-on-one, 20-minute portfolio review session with the photography instructor of your choice (more than one session can be purchased). Purchase in Advance $49 $59 at the door
