Portfolio Reviews

Participants sign up for twenty-minute face-to-face reviews of their portfolio and receive candid advice about their work, as well as information on getting their photographs exhibited and published. We are thrilled to have so many of our attendees walk away with connections that have led to publishing their work, gallery exhibitions, online exhibitions and the indispensable opportunity to network with their peers.

More information about how to prepare for reviews can be found on our FAQ page.


Portfolio Reviews are Sold Out.
