Photo Reviewer for Arts Organization - Photolucida

I am honored to be participating as a Reviewer for Photolucida's regional reviews next Month. As an art director for Amber Lotus Publishing, I look at a crazy amount of photography and art work of all kinds. Always seeking the right style and content for our inspiring calendar products. So I am looking forward to preview some excellent work by some of the northwest's budding photographers, fine art - commercial - scenic and inspirational. Yay!

Location: Leftbank Annex, Portland, Oregon
Registration: Open Now! – $325

Photolucida has been hosting our popular biennial Portfolio Review event for fifteen years (the next one is scheduled for April 20-23, 2017). Now, as part of Portland Photo Month, we are offering a special, one-day event that will give registrants the experience of preparing for a larger-scale portfolio review – with just a one-day commitment.

The primary aim of the Regional Review is to introduce emerging photographers to the practice of preparing and promoting their work. It will also be a valuable opportunity for photographers to receive feedback on their work from reviewers.

  • Registration is limited to 40 photographers. Fine art, photojournalism, and/or documentary work is appropriate for this event. Photographers should bring portfolios of approximately 15-20 prints.
  • Each photographer will have six, 20-minute appointments with different reviewers over the course of the day. Appointments with reviewers will be assigned by our programming.
  • Each photographer will have the chance to participate in a portfolio walk at Blue Sky Gallery to share their images with peers and the public.
  • Both photographers and reviewers will have a social space to informally exchange dialogue and enjoy a snazzy after party!

Registration is now open! Spots are first come, first served.

The results of my last review session with Photolucida:

Last year at the biennial Portfolio Review Event I discovered the work of Kevin Horan, We are very excited at Amber Lotus publishing, about this calendar featuring Kevin's incredible portraits from his Chattel series. Very fun, very beautiful, quizzical and contemplative all at the same time.
