This workshop, designed specifically for fine art photographers, focuses on developing artists’ portfolios over a five-week period of time. Working together as a group and individually, we’ll develop the very best presentation that meets each student’s own sensibilities and target audience, such as gallerists, designers or fine art curators.

In addition to weekly critiques and editing/sequencing sessions, the class will cover individual branding, artist statements, and portfolio presentation. Each class will start with an in-depth discussion on one of the aforementioned subjects, followed by a viewing of student work, establishing desired objectives, and setting monthly goals. We will exploit the class environment by involving each student in every critique, giving all participants the opportunity to work together in a supportive and encouraging environment. Through this process, students will gain invaluable experience talking about their work before a group, and learn how to benefit from constructive criticism. Monthly assignments will be given to help students in their portfolio development process.

In more cases than not, a photographer’s portfolio is their ONLY voice when introducing themselves to potential clients. By the conclusion of this class, students will walk away with a portfolio that is consistent, individual, and something to behold and be proud of.
