Participants should bring a finished portfolio, or portfolios and numerous examples of works-in-progress or new directions. Work need not be matted.
Individual portfolio reviews designed to strengthen your presentation through practical direction. Gary works with photographers at all levels to define specific goals for their work. Once these targets are clarified, the work is edited and practical steps for action are outlined. Client Donna Dotan writes, “Thank you so much for all of your help with my portfolio.
