Are you about to embark on a personal photographic project and would like to review your ideas and approach with an expert? Do you have a long term project that you need help editing and sequencing? Are you a mid-career photographer struggling to figure out your photographic vision or where you are going next with your career?

This online portfolio review will help photographers identify their next step — from finding your photographic voice, to the process of discovering and making a long-term project that you’re passionate about, to practical advice on getting your work seen by the right people.

Each Magnum photographer will see 10 photographers only during this two-day event. Places will be allocated based on your application. The price of the online portfolio review is $350 (incl. tax) to be paid on acceptance of the application. The offer includes a “Preparing for a Portfolio Review” presentation, a 60 minutes one-to-one online portfolio review. We will do our best to accommodate your timezone and schedule.

This 60-minute online portfolio review offers:

  • Guidance on technical, ethical, theoretical and aesthetic issues
  • Ideas Development
  • Editing and Sequencing
  • Workflow
  • Output and presentation
  • Professional Practice
  • Online Networking


I feel that making work is best served when it invites dialogue and constructive criticism. The feedback we receive helps us move to forward with our ideas and find voice through exploration of mediums and play.

About your reviewer

Jim Goldberg’s innovative and multidisciplinary approach to social documentary makes him a landmark photographer of our times. His work often examines the lives of neglected, ignored, or otherwise outside-the-mainstream populations through long-term, in-depth collaborations which investigate the nature of American myths about class, power, and happiness. He began to explore experimental storytelling and the potential impacts of combining photographs and text with Rich and Poor (1977-85), where he juxtaposed the self-annotated images of residents of welfare hotel rooms with the upper class and their elegantly furnished homes. In Raised by Wolves (1985-95), he worked closely with runaway teenagers in San Francisco and Los Angeles to create a boo and exhibition that combined original photographs, text, home movie stills, snapshots, drawings, and diary entries with single and multi-channel video, sculpture, found objects, lightboxes and other 3-D Elements.
A prolific and influential bookmaker, Goldberg’s recent books include Ruby Every Fall, (2014); The Last Son, (2016); Raised By Wolves (2016), Candy (2017), Darrell & Patricia (2018) and Gene (2018).Goldberg has received three National Endowment of the Arts Fellowships in Photography, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Henri Cartier-Bresson Award, and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, among many other honors and grants.He joined Magnum Photos in 2002.
