In preparation for the upcoming New England Portfolio Reviews hosted by the Griffin Museum of Photography and the PRC on June 7 and 8, 2013, we invite you to join us for a fun and informative panel discussion with four well-known names in the New England photography world.

Never presented your work at a portfolio review before? Want to learn how to make your NEPR experience, or any portfolio review experience, a huge success? This panel includes several portfolio reviewers and veterans of the field who are eager to give you some pointers.

The panel will discuss the following topics:

  • electronic or print presentations?
  • how many prints is enough or too many?
  • should you show a variety of work or one series?
  • what should you say in your 1:1 sessions?
  • should you leave something with the reviewer?
  • should you contact the reviewer after the review?

Also, the panel will discuss survival strategies and how to interpret a critical review while helping you define what it is that you want from a portfolio review. Come prepared with specific questions – the panelists are here to help
