Pricing and Signup

Welcome to our new portfolio review and image critique opportunities for all FCCP Members. The basic image critique will now be done digitally because it streamlines the process and it is a less expensive means for the photographer to present his/her work. Images will be reviewed on a one to one basis between the photographer and select reviewers.

There are just a couple of steps to get ready for a critique of your images. The basic steps are to pick out your best images, choose who you want to review your images and then wait to get your feedback. There are some additional steps, such as paying, but that is all contained below and via some additional links.

Step 1 Choose your best images and email or mail them to FCCP

Step 2 Pick the person you want to review/critique your images

Step 3 Pick the level of review you need, three levels to pick from to meet everyone's budget.

Step 4 Pay online via credit card or mail a check or money to FCCP.


Images must be no larger than 1600 pixels on the longest edge. This size will allow multiple images to be emailed to the review site and also present a high quality image for review. Images may also be burned to a CD/DVD or put on a thumb drive, but this will delay the review process. Images on CD/DVD or thumb drive (please label with name and phone number) may be given to Jeff Donald at any FCCP event or mailed to:

Jeff Donald
809 Jeffords Street
Clearwater, FL 33756

You can also use this address if paying for the review/critique with a check or money order.

Here are some general guidelines for selecting images for review:

Don't show multiple photos of the same subject but with different composition or lighting.

Don't include technical specs such as shutter speed, ISO, camera brand etc.

Do not have pictures of your pets or family members unless they are great shots.

It is OK to mix Black and White and color photos in the same critique/review.

Don't rely on gimmicks. Spot color in an otherwise B&W photo will not get marks with a reviewer.

If you have nudes in your portfolio, tell the reviewer beforehand so that suitable privacy can be assured.

Don't point out favorite shots or particularly difficult shots.

Ask questions if you need additional information on a photograph. Do not use the questions as a means of explaining your work.

Have fun.


Traditional Print Portfolio Reviews will be conducted twice a year, in March and September. Print Portfolio Reviews will be announced approximately 60 days in advance of the review.
