Want a fresh eye on your work? Need to revitalize your web presence? Have a photo essay that is almost complete? I can help, having been a photo editor for 20 years with Black Star NYC, Sipa Press Paris, and Sierra Club Books, San Francisco. I regularly travel to conferences such as Photo Alliance to do in-person portfolio reviews. Whether you’re early on in your career or a working professional, we can all benefit from a new perspective on our work.
In addition, I’m a seasoned photographer who still shoots. In the past couple years I’ve been on the ground in Asia— Bangladesh, India, Myanmar and Cambodia. Since 2008 I’ve also worked in these countries as a photography trainer, in colleges and adult education through the Fulbright Program and the State Department.
My portfolio reviews are personal, and like with my editing at Verve, I take my time. You email me some questions to focus on, or a bigger issue you are struggling with. I will take up to a week to examine your work, and we schedule a phone appointment. Our conversation lasts 40 minutes, twice as long as I spend as a reviewer at a workshop.
The cost of the service is $100 per review. Some photographers like to call back for ongoing advice, so now I’m offering three sessions (within a two month period) for $250 .
