Portfolio Reviews

A 2-day workshop via Zoom.

July 11, 2020, 10:00am – 5:00pm
July 12, 2020 10:00am – 4:00pm

Portfolio Reviews can be frightening if you have never participated in a review. Our aim at the New England Portfolio Reviews (NEPR) is to take away the fears and provide the tools and confidence to navigate any review session with any reviewer.

This two-day workshop is designed to help you prepare and practice for your portfolio sessions. Through practice sessions of actually engaging in reviews, Paula Tognarelli will help each attendee work through an actual review, develop an “elevator speech,” assist on how to begin the actual review, how to present and sequence the photographs and assist in the edit of the presentation of the portfolio. You will learn the questions to ask in the review and learn techniques to keep from being sidetracked by a reviewer.  Lastly you will learn how to end the review process and develop a means for follow-up contact with reviewers. Discussion on follow-up will involve practical applications to ensure that the work presented remains memorable for the reviewers as they return to their daily routines in the photo world.

Price is $200 for Members of the Griffin Museum and the Photographic Resource Center and $250 for Non-members. Space is limited to 8 participants.

This program is brought to you through the collaboration of the Griffin Museum of Photography and the Photographic Resource Center.
