“Artistic & Professional Development Workshops Portfolio Review Sessions
June 20, 2009 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
This En Foco program offers one-on-one reviews with several arts professionals on the same day, in a supportive, nurturing and affordable environment. Reviewers can advise about opportunities and/or provide guidance on career development. This is an outstanding opportunity for ALL photographers to have their work critiqued by curators, editors, educators and other arts organizations.
Whether you’re ready for Chelsea galleries, or just looking for feedback and advice, we have reviewers to suit all needs – you just have to be serious about your craft (call if you have questions). In between sessions, you’ll be able to relax in the photographer’s creative lounge and share your work with peers.
This workshop is only available to current En Foco Members (ALL are welcome to join). Each review session lasts for 20 minutes; photographers are guaranteed a minimum of three reviews and receive a ‘gift bag.’ Upon registration, participants will receive an article written by photo marketing expert Mary Virginia Swanson, on how to best prepare themselves for the Review.
