If you’re ready to take the next step with your portfolio or project, sign up for your slot today! Each one-hour review session is $150. 

What to Bring:

20 photographs maximum per portfolio
Only bring 1 portfolio. We will only have time to review one project per session.
Bring a business card or any take-away items if you have them.
Show up on time

Tips When Preparing

Only include your very best images. Editing is crucial. 
Resist showing two or more images that are similar.
Only include unframed photographs that are ready to exhibit and sell.
Edward may have suggestions for placement of your work.
You should be ready for consignment.
Sign all photographs.
Know your edition and price structure.
You can write documentation on the back of the photographs in pencil.
Be careful to not write too hard. You don’t want the writing to show through to the front. 
The Review is not a workshop or a class. You should present work for review when you are ready to take the next step in your career. 

The Review Process Outline:


Discussion of Content

Ok to be honest with the reviewer

Discussion of price structure and edition

Be organized and consistent 

Erratic editions are confusing and make it difficult to sell the work

Discussion of how to get your work exhibited if you are ready
