Portfolio review events are seemingly all the rage right now in the photography, with good reason. I am in the process of writing a longer article explaining what they are are why they are becoming so popular and with tips on getting the most of out of them — so keep an eye out this week for more on this.
But until then, I wanted to get this information out there as soon as possible, as there are a number of portfolio review event possibilities coming up soon for New England photographers (and look quickly, as some are coming up very soon!).
The Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA has their annual Portfolio Day coming up this Saturday, February 1st. Call them to sign up if you are interested — there are at least three people there who are primarily or exclusively reviewing photography. This one is also open to all artists, not just photographers.
The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, now has monthly – and free – portfolio reviews for members of the museum. The next one up is next week on February 4th from 7-9 pm. And if any Mainers sign up I’m heading down for this one and would be interested in car pooling if we can make the schedules work…
The second annual New York Portfolio Review is coming up April 5th and 6th, 2014, with a deadline for submission of February 10th. This one will likely be highly competitive for both its reviewers and the fact that it is free (unique among the big review events). It is a juried event so you have to submit an application to be considered.
The PRC at Boston University has monthly review events for members, too, and you can find out more here. The next one is on Wednesday, so you’ll likely have better luck with next month’s one on February 26th.
