On February 12th, 2019, three of NVPS’s most experienced photographers (Ginger Werz-Petricka, Kevin Egan, and Kathryn Mohrman) will lead the interim review of portfolios for NVPS members who are participating in the Portfolio Project this year. Whether you have a portfolio for review or not, it will be a fun and interesting learning experience. Although the reviewers may comment on individual images, the Portfolio Project emphasizes a body of work and how the individual images work together as a cohesive whole. Our reviewers will also provide their thoughts about the Artist Statement that begins each portfolio, giving feedback on how it correlates with the actual portfolio. They will also look for continuity, repetition, and the order of images, and give helpful suggestions.
Portfolio Project participants will use this coming Tuesday’s feedback to hone their work and ready it for the final review on May 21, 2019.
Portfolios are an important way for photographers to display their artistic vision and develop different projects for bodies of work. Seeing the various portfolios and hearing the reviewers’ comments will hopefully give everyone ideas for portfolios of their own.
