This event will be specifically targeted for our chapter’s Associate, Emerging and Student members (AES). This a terrific opportunity for our beginner members to gain experience and receive professional feedback on their images, portfolio layout and presentations. I believe Waylon Jennings said it best: “This is no dress rehearsal. We ARE professionals, and this IS the big time.” Here’s how it works. We’ve requested the assistance of your fellow General Members to review your portfolio. Their backgrounds represent Advertising, Architecture, Commercial, Corporate, Editorial Fashion, Graphic Design, Portraiture and Fine Art photography. Each presenter will have the opportunity to have his/her portfolio(s) reviewed a minimum of three times. The Speed Portfolio Review process will be as follows:
The review process will last about 1.25 hours.
When making your reservation, the presenter should list his/her areas of interest in order of priority so we can best match you to the appropriate reviewer.
Presenters will be paired with the reviewers who have experience in those subjects.
Each Review will last 10 minutes.
Portfolios must be in print format and consist of no more than 20 images.
Each presenter will use the first 2 minutes to introduce yourself and your work. If you have any promos or other marketing material, include them in your presentation.
The remaining minutes are spent with the reviewer looking at your book and offering feedback about the work.
After eight minutes, you’ll hear a two-minute warning.
There will be a two minute break between reviews for presenters to move on to the next reviewing station.
One final note to the AES members taking part. The reviewers we’ve chosen are incredibly visually astute. They will be able to provide excellent feedback on your work regardless of their specialty.
