November 14th: ASMP Oregon Portfolio Review

November 14, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm PST

$10.00 – $40.00

ASMP Oregon is once again offering our popular Portfolio Review Night.

Whether you’re looking for feedback on story and technique,  want to get the opinions of an amazing group of creative experts, or if you just want to hear what our panel thinks about some great photography, you’ll want to come to this event.

Improving your photographs by honing your creativity is the key to gaining a competitive edge in your work, and our panelists are here to help you do just that.
  • Learn about creating  portfolios that communicate your vision.
  • Show your work to a panel of buyers and creatives from across multiple markets.
  • Get informed opinions on the ever-changing photography market.
If you are a photographer ASMP is offering  two great opportunities:
  1. Live panel review: As part of the basic ticket price, you may submit 3 images to be in our slideshow, presented to our panelists in a live review of your work.
  2. One-on-one portfolio review: For the extended ticket price, you can sit down with one of our panelists with your print portfolio (or ipad, etc.). We’ll contact you and have you list your top 3 choices for reviewers.
[vc_message message_box_style=”outline” icon_type=”openiconic” icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-info”]Consider putting the work that you put on screen as a sort of mini-portfolio; there should be a common thread that connects them, whether that means they’re from the same shoot (e.g. an editorial story) or connected by a style (e.g. black & white, large-format, portraits).

Bring the portfolio you currently show to clients, or a portfolio that is in-development of connected images; help the reviewers out by considering the type of feedback you need and want, and communicate that to them at the start.[/vc_message]
