Advice on Preparing your Portfolio
Edit your work
Be selective, the reviews only last 20 minutes so make
sure you maximise on the opportunity. Choose photographs
that you like and that you feel give a strong representation
of your practice. If you show work you are passionate
about this will come across and enthuse the reviewer.
If you have a number of different bodies of work edit
them down to give an overview of each project. Don’t
bombard the reviewer with boxes and boxes of prints.
Always present your work in a way you feel
comfortable with. Whether in a book, loose leaf folder,
portfolio box or on a laptop screen – make sure the
work can be handled easily and looked through without compromising
You also need to present your work verbally to
explain your intentions, ideas and motivations. This will
aid the reviewers appreciation and help them give constructive
feedback and critique. Consider what you feel are the key
points about each image or body of work and plan what to
say. Keep it simple, don’t waffle and make sure you
leave some time for you and the reviewer to ask questions.
Be on time and remember you only have 20 minutes
- going over time will impact on someone else’s slot.
Bring a notebook to write down any helpful advice or contacts
the reviewer may suggest.
Bring some personal information
Leave the reviewer with
a way of contacting you. Business cards are okay but something
with one of your images on is better; reviewers will be
looking at a lot of work an image will remind them who
you are. Make sure all contact details are correct and
include an email address. If you have a website make sure
the address for this is included.
Please Note These reviews
are aimed at photographers and artists with a developed
and serious approach to their practice. On this occasion
