Photography Portfolio Review

CONTINUE TO SIGN UP. THERE IS A WAITLIST.

This will be our 2nd Annual Portfolio Review. The process involves participants presenting a themed collection of photos(the theme is totally your choice of subject matter) with an artist statement to reviewers who will give honest, constructive critiques.

You will need to have 8-15 images no smaller than 8x10. Each review will be 15 minutes. The number of reviews that will be available will depend on the number of participants and the number of available reviewers. The information that you will receive from the reviewers will be invaluable in helping you along your photographic journey.

You will need to write an artist statement explaining your project and telling a little bit about yourself. A few paragraphs is all it takes. This could be helpful: http://digital-photography-school.com/6-tips-for-writing-an-artist%E2%80%99s-statement

We will need a final count on those who would like to participate so that we can order box lunches and have a post-game wrap up. 

Meetup members who are part of KAA will get a discounted rate of $15. All others will be asked to pay $30. 

If you would like to participate, please sign up. You need to start shooting now. 

All participants will be expected to pay for their spot by Sept 25th. Checks can be made out to KCAM and dropped off or mailed to KCAM 805 Ave B, Katy, TX 77493. ATTENTION Portfolio Review. All checks must be received by Sept 25th. Anyone not paid by that date will give up their spot to a person on the wait list. 

Pay ONLINE for the Portfolio Review.

    I know everyone really enjoyed having the review at KCAM. It is a non-profit organization and they depend on donations and memberships to keep the doors open. Go to www.katycam.com and please consider where you can best help and show your support and show Ana how much we appreciate what she has made available for us all to enjoy.

    We are always looking for more volunteers too.

      The memberships are super reasonable. It would be great if everyone could purchase a membership and be a part of KCAM all year long.

    Thanks Debi and others who helped organize! What a great venue as well! I'll be back for a next event and browse the exhibition a bit more.
    A great experience for me, as this was my first time showing my work outside of the circle of friends and family. I appreciated all the feedback. Would it be appropriate to ask everybody who wants to to upload the set of pictures that you showed to this meetup? I have seen a few of yours, but not all. You all did some great work! To all photogs and reviewers, feel free to connect with me on Facebook, since I am sure you are posting your work there every once in a while -- and I'd like to see more :) https://www.facebook.com/burgardt

    Cheers- Achim

    Big thanks to Debi, Anna and our reviewers! Was a great experience and wonderful feedback. It gets better each year.

    Debi...I think everyone was impressed with the judges that you were able gather to participate. Each one had a different perspective on our portfolios, and each one added a positive, constructive comment that will contribute to making our work (photographs) better in the future. And it was really nice to have the break room to go to after each review. We were able to visit with fellow photographers, see their work, exchange ideas and get to know photographers in the group that we might not have known before Saturday. Thank you very much.

      Printed. Photos may be larger than 8x10. Some folks will mat them others will print so that a 2"-3" white border appears. The artists statement should also be printed.

  • Jermone M.

    Can it be more than one theme?

    October 16

    • Debi

      No, one theme. It is an exercise in putting an exhibit together. You will be critiqued on the theme. If there is more than one theme, the reviewers typically pull out what doesn't apply and then talk about the ones in the strongest group.

      October 17

    • Jermone M.

      Ok.

  • William G.

      October 16

    • Debi

      Everyone starts at the same time. We will draw numbers and begin choosing time spots with the reviewers. You can stay as long as you can.

    October 12

    • Achim B.

      Don't forget the artist statement I guess .. a couple weeks time to think about it :)

  • Darby D.

    I thought I was signed up as I attended the training. Is there still room? I was planning on participating.

    October 12

    • Debi

      The training had nothing to do with signing up for the actual review. There is one spot left if you would like to sign up. Please go to the meetup site and sign up, then go to the KCAM site and pay for your spot. See you on the 25th!

    We have 3 last minute openings in the Portfolio Review. If anyone is interested, you can still get in. Let us know ASAP! Thanks.

    1 · October 8

  • Debi

    Don't forget that you each need to write an artist statement.... http://www.artbusiness.com/artstate.html

    Short, sweet, to the point. Do it.

    I am afraid I will have to drop. Looks like I will not be in town.

    • Marsha S.

      Regretfully things happen out of our control. Is that not the point of the wait list?

      October 8

    • Debi

      no, the cutoff was several weeks ago. I can't expect someone on the waitlist to pull a portfolio together in such a short time. Sorry you won't be there, we have some really great reviewers who will give good information to those who come.

      October 8

  • Aniket R.

    Can I still pay for it?

    October 5

    • Debi

      Yes, please go to the link and pay. This is a fun event and you will really enjoy it!

  • Dominique L.

    I know I'm on the wait list but I've never done a portfolio. I'm new to photography and I honestly don't know how to start building a portfolio...or even know of a reputable place to print. Would someone kindly give me some suggestions? Thanks!

    September 21

    • Debi

      a portfolio is a themed body of work submitted to reviewers. It needs to be printed and presented as if to a gallery owner for submission. I would suggest waiting until next year. We will have a meetup discussing the ins and outs of preparing and presenting a portfolio.

      Thank you Debi!
