Summit 101: Introducing The 2013 Portfolio Review
Summit ‘13 Portfolio Review
This year ONWARD’s Portfolio Review features 15 professional photographers/editors/camera-folk who are ready and more than willing to review your work. ONWARD’s portfolio reviewers boast experience in variety of photographic disciplines. Our diverse set of reviewers provides you more opportunities to gain feedback applicable to your photographic style.
Participants in the review are able to choose their top 3 reviewers and we can guarantee you’ll get some one-on-one time with at least one of your three picks.
Why Attend a Portfolio Review?
For those who’ve never attended a portfolio review, this is a great opportunity to meet, network with and obtain feedback from influential people in the photography biz. For those who are already well versed in having their portfolio reviewed… this is an even greater opportunity to gain extra feedback and improve your photographic connections.
In short, this is a sweet deal! You’ll get the chance to bump elbows with professionals representing a variety of fields in photography. Not to mention, you’ll gain ever-valuable feedback from an unbiased group of experts.
The Nitty Gritty
ONWARD’s 2013 Portfolio Review is an optional addition to the Summit. As mentioned above, this is an exclusive opportunity to connect with experts in the photography field. Only 25 tickets are available, and we expect spaces to fill quickly.
