Creating a strong portfolio is a must for any aspiring professional photographer to land gigs and clients. In this class organized around intensive critiques, each student’s photographs will be workshopped as a group. Emphasis will be placed on the form/content relationship within each image as well as the techniques required to create the strongest possible sequence. Over the course of a weekend each student will take an existing body of work and collaboratively craft it into an effective portfolio.

Prerequisite: Must have a working portfolio of 15+ images based around a central theme, not an assortment of favorite photographs;
