Ever feel like your in-person portfolio presentation is a bit like being a contestant on American Idol?
Whether you’re “performing” at a portfolio review event (those 20-minute sessions at events with multiple reviewers) – or you’re showing your book to someone when you’re being considered for a specific project – there are ways to optimize your meeting that could help you eventually land that dream assignment. This webinar will give you 5 tips (probably more!!) on ways to improve your odds of getting some serious attention, be more memorable, and maybe even score that gig.
Remember: The time you spend with a reviewer, once it’s over, is gone forever and neither of you can ever get those minutes back. Make sure you invest those minutes wisely.
Join Photography Marketing Consultant, Carolyn Potts, on Tuesday, October 17th @ 9:00amPT/12:00pmET for a conversation to assist you in perfecting your photography portfolio presentation. Bring your questions about all things portfolio for the conversation and Q&A with Carolyn.
Carolyn Potts Bio
Creating assignments and income for photographers is what Carolyn Potts, creative consultant and former artists rep, has done for over 30 years. With extensive experience in the sales and marketing of assignment photography, portfolio editing, design and user experience, she provides strategies and tactics for photographers who need effective solutions to both improve their portfolios and land the photo opportunities they want and need.
As a successful photo rep with a global client base, she accurately anticipated market trends for over three decades and consistently helped her clients stay ahead of constantly changing photography market conditions. Using marketing and branding strategies that set her photographers apart from those who market on price alone, her photographers shot for almost every blue-chip client you can name. Her clients have also had their fine art work exhibited internationally. She and her clients have also survived the previous three “worst recessions ever!”
She shows photographers how to do for themselves what she used to do for them. Carolyn works with photographers who are seeking new and existing markets for their work– or to revitalize sagging careers. She also helps emerging photographers understand the needs of photo buyers across many niches (e.g., advertising, editorial, fine art, commercial and consumer portraiture).
She brings the necessary “fresh eyes” critical to creating an effective portfolio presentation necessary to land projects in any market niche. She’s created well over 10,000 portfolio edits.
She has been a frequent portfolio reviewer at numerous photo festivals and portfolio review events including The Palm Springs Photo Festival, The Chicago Creative Review, and PhotoPlus Expo. She was also one of the first reviewers invited to join the portfolio review team of www.eyeist.com
As Carolyn has also said, “My bottom line is, I help talented, pro-active and great photographers learn how to also become great marketers of their own work.”
