Portfolio Building Workshop

$75.00

This is the Portfolio Build Class for mid-level photographers. This is not a class for beginners, or for the more experienced photographers. This is a class for photographers working on their portfolio to make it more appealing to art directors, editors, and designers.

We focus on the creative aspects of understanding the portfolio process and identifying the properties of a good portfolio. There is a private FB group specifically for this group to have private and confidential discussions on images and direction.

IMPORTANT: This is an intensive workshop with deliverables each week. You get out of it what you put into it.

The 8 Webinars will be recorded, as well as the additional critiques by myself and other photographers/designers. There will be a lot of information in this class, and we will demand a lot from the students. Please check your schedule before enrolling.

You will be responsible for the shoot schedule for the month of August. We will reconvene in September for the review process.

Class Meets Monday Evenings at 6 PM Pacific.
Class begins July 3, 2017.
Enrollment must be completed by June 26th in order to have pre-webinar review time.
