About The Course

The ‘Portfolio Review’ is designed for photographers with a developed and committed approach to their work. The purpose of the review is to provide photographers, and artists working with photography, the opportunity to present their portfolio and gain a professional opinion on their work and constructive feedback on their artistic development, and expand their professional network and exchange ideas.

The time and date of the review will be decided to suit both the participant and the reviewer. When a booking is made, a date will then be decided.

The review will last 30 minutes. We advise you to prepare accordingly and think about what you would like to achieve from the review, in order to maximise the opportunity. The review can also be delivered online. We will provide instructions and one-to-one support for participants who need help accessing the online platform (Zoom) used to deliver the course.

What you will need
  • A carefully considered and planned portfolio of 10 to 20 images.
  • Submit the images of your portfolio before the review.
  • Submit a brief description to accompany the portfolio, to provide more context and information for the reviewer.
  • For online portfolio reviews, participants must have access to Zoom. Zoom is very user-friendly, and we can provide one-to-one support if you require any assistance in using the app.
What you will learn
  • Gain a professional opinion and critique of your portfolio.
  • Receive constructive feedback on your artistic and career development.
  • How to present and talk about your work effectively.
  • Expand your professional network and knowledge of the photography sector.
  • Exchange ideas and concepts to further progress and develop your work.
