During this one day workshop photography consultant and curator Marc Prüst will give participating photographers the tools to create a portfolio and prepare their presentation specifically for international portfolio reviews. After this intense day participants will come away with a clear idea of what they can achieve with reviews and how their work should be presented in this specific and demanding context.
Concepts such as visual language, elevator pitch, but also the different types of photographic stories will be explained and practiced during the day.
Sign up for this workshop if you have a project you feel needs an international audience, if you want specific feedback on your work before taking it to a review session, or if you want to explore the possibilities of the network of portfolio reviews.
