Description

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.

The deadline for applications is March 7th. 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:

  • Ideas Development
  • Editing and Sequencing
  • Workflow
  • Output and presentation
  • Professional Practice
  • Online Networking

 

Photography runs through everything in our present time. I am interested in seeing the images that stir something in you, knowing how they provoke you, how they shake your consciousness and depict your relationship with the world around us. When I review portfolios I seek to provide the photographer with a selection of production strategies and conceptualization of an idea to generate an image and this image generates a story that can trigger the author's vision.
