Perfecting Your Pitch: Preparing for Portfolio Reviews



In this two-part course, photographers will learn strategies to prepare for professional portfolio reviews. Before you pack your prints and head to a conference or photo festival, get advice on how much to bring, how much to say, and how to follow up. The first meeting will focus on logistics and include time for a round-robin practice session and critique with fellow students. The second meeting two weeks later will be a review dress rehearsal, where students will have the opportunity to pitch their portfolio to select photo professionals from the Triangle.
