OCTOBER 19-22, 2016

JACOB JAVITS CONVENTION CENTER, NEW YORK CITY

The Official Portfolio Review at PhotoPlus Expo is America’s premiere review event for commercial & fine art photographers.

Paying thousands of dollars to insert your images in sourcebooks or sending out endless email campaigns are no longer effective methods to meet the influencers you want to work with. There is no substitute for face-to-face presentations. 

Every registrant for the Official Portfolio Review Program receives FREE admission to PhotoPlus Expo! Present your work, check out the latest gear and for an additional fee, attend your choice of over 100 seminars at the largest photography trade show in the country.

This year, we will again produce two different review events:

The Open Portfolio Review: Wednesday, October 19th: A one-day-only review event for photographers launching their careers or established pros looking for guidance / advice on their portfolios or new bodies of work. We select a range of our reviewers for you. You come away with advice, direction, and informed opinions from a range of industry experts. You come away with valuable information you can use.

The Emerging & Pro Portfolio Review (vetted): Thursday, October 20th – Saturday, October 22nd. Designed for emerging and professional editorial, commercial, advertising and fine-art photographers with fully focused, tightly edited portfolios. You choose your reviewers. We do the rest. If you register before September 30th, no one will be able to choose their reviews before you.

October 19:  Open Portfolio Review (non-vetted): $275 for 5 reviews.

October 20-22:  Emerging and Professional Event: $325 for 5 reviews.

10% discount for 10 or more reviews.

Registration Fee: $15 per day of attendance.
