About This Class

Crusade For Your Art: Best Practices for Fine Art Photographers gives you the tools to take your fine art photography career by the reins and thoughtfully and purposefully develop a plan to get you where you want to go.  Learn how to tighten your work, develop your brand, identify goals and a plan for your photography, and strategically launch your project in this 10-course series.

Portfolio Review events provide photographers a wealth of opportunities that are unique in the visual arts. At a typical portfolio review, photographers show a portfolio of printed images to an industry leader (a museum curator, gallerist, publisher, consultant, or online editor) in a 20- minute session. 

This course will tell you everything you have ever wanted to know (and many things you didn’t think to ask) about how to get the most out of photographic portfolio reviews. You will learn what they are, why they are valuable, and how to prepare for them. For the course project, you will create a leave behind to give out at a portfolio review event.
