Calling all photographers! This Saturday, April 1 Hidden Light will host their first annual portfolio review. Whether you are just starting in photography and looking to get your first professional feedback, or you are an award-winning, published shooter, this opportunity is for you. Prizes will be awarded, top scores with have the opportunity to show their work in the Hidden Light Gallery here at the Coconino Center for the Arts!

The portfolio review will offer one-on-one time with professionals knowledgable about the photography field so that each participants session is specifically tailored  to them. Want to know how to get published in magazines? Ask the reviewers. Looking to make fine-art prints for display in museums and galleries? Great! Your session is about your images and your goals for your work.

Inside of a strict 15 minute timeline, you only have time to look through your best images, so it is imperative that you know how to cull your work down to the best of the best. Showing the breadth of the work you want to be doing is better than showing the depth of a single project that all looks similar. You can think about the portfolio review as a sort of interview; make a great first impression, show your best work, and take the constructive criticism to heart.

How it works:
Over the course of an hour, you will sit with four different experts from the photo industry and get their take on your portfolio of images.
