Wednesday, October 25th
Who should attend:
If you’re thinking of turning pro or if you’ve been working in the business but have new directions you’d like to pursue, are not clear on how to tighten things up, need to identify and clarify what you have and how to better present it – this event is for you.
Reviewers in this program are specifically interested in meeting photographers who will benefit from advice on their presentations, choices of images, strengths and weaknesses of individual bodies of work, suggestions as to how improve their presentations and focus their work. They can also offer jobs if they feel the work is right for them.
How it works:
Our staff will assign your reviewers. You will present your work to experts from different backgrounds – you’ll get a rounded, experienced and knowledgeable response to consider at the end of the day. All reviewers are industry experts, and most if not all of them also review in our Emerging & Pro program. Click here to see a list of reviewers in the Open Portfolio Review.
We schedule the reviewers for you and send you that schedule in advance, so you have time to research the industry professionals that you will be meeting with.
What should you bring:
Bring your best tightly edited work to make an impression and show reviewers who you are photographically, and where you want to go. We recommend keeping your edit to no more than 20 – 25 images. You may want to bring additional work to share, should the reviewer ask to see more. You can bring your work on an iPad, laptop, a book, or prints. You may also want to be prepared with a list of questions. If you’re moving into fine art, we recommend bringing fine prints.
