Portfolio Review - November 2013

This year will be our first portfolio review. The process involves participants presenting a themed collection of photos, with an artist statement to reviewers who will give honest, constructive critiques.

You will need to have 8-15 images no smaller than 8x10. You will need a box for your images. White gloves will be provided to you.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.

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 need a final count on those who would like to participate. Meetup members who are part of KAA have already paid their entry fee. Others will be asked to pay $25. The information that you will receive from the reviewers will be invaluable in helping you along your photographic journey.

As soon as we get the number of participants, we can make arrangements for a room large enough to accommodate everyone. Please do not sign up if you can't make a presentation.

If you would like to participate, please sign up. The event will be held during the first part of November, so if you are thinking about participating, you need to start shooting.

This is an incredible opportunity and we look forward to as many of you participating as possible.

    The Portfolio Review was a huge success. Enjoyed by both the reviewers and reviewees, everyone got something out of the experience. We will definitely do this again next year.

    I give this meet-up a 5 stars to the PARTICIPANTS that shared their portfolios!!!! Thank you! I know some of you were nervous, anxious, excited, etc., but that's part of the process and it's a great opportunity to grow from the experience. I'm sure it was much less painful than expected ;) I greatly appreciate each and every one for sharing your work and all your thoughtful and personal efforts to bringing your portfolio for review. You should each feel very proud of where you are and inspired and empowered as you move forward in your photographic journey! Again, thanks for sharing! If you have photos from the portfolio review and you want to share with me to post on the KCAM School of Photography gallery, please send them to my drop box: http://dropbox.yousendit.com/FatimaDonaldson9310935 Metallic paper, Nations Photo Lab is running a 30% discount : http://www.nationsphotolab.com/prints_metallic.aspx Take care!

    Wow, what a wonderful experience! This was my first portfolio review and was anxious about doing it. I gained so much knowledge and know it will help me so much. Thank you to all of you, Debi for arranging, reviewers for taking the time and caring to do this.

    Excellent event. On the one hand humbling, on the other confidence building. Good insights from folks much more accomplished in the art of photography than I.

    Great news, we have one more reviewer, Frank Kreipe.

    Francis "Frank" H Kreipehas created some of the most fascinating views, concepts and designs into images from subjects as small as the microscope to the vastness of a scenic. During this career, images have been published in professional magazines, stock sources, and for client assignments. Professional organization affiliations have included Biological Photographers Association, Professional Photographers Association, Photographic Society of America, and the Society of Photographers in Industry which he has served as officers and board members. He now focuses on Fine Art Photography.

    Come meet Frank and the rest of the reviewer this Saturday. This is going to be so much fun!!!!

      Also, how many copies of our artist statement should we bring?

      November 8, 2013

    • Debi

      At this point you have a pretty good shot of meeting with 5 out of the 6 reviewers. We may just start with one and everybody move one table to the right. You can reuse the artist statement for each reviewer, but you can print more if you want to leave one with them.

      November 8, 2013

  • Debi

    Just one. You can bring more if you like, but one should do.

  • Bob J.

    Will we be able to see the photos that the members submitted for review? Can we attend at no charge and see the portfolios?

    November 5, 2013

    • Debi

      Explain a little more what you want. I'm not sure I understand.

      November 6, 2013

    • Fatima D.

      It is not an ideal scenario to have a photographer who is participating in the review to have fellow artists asking questions when they need to (pre) be getting ready to present their review and (post) process the feedback that reviewer(s) provided. It's always important to give the reviewee that time and space to process all of it. I think Debi is working on setting something up at a different time for portfolio sharing...hope that helps.

    Hi Debi,

    If it is possible I want to attend the review after 2.

    Thanks you,
