En Foco is pleased to offer its Edit Your Portfolio Workshop, a two-hour workshop for emerging photographers with Dee Campos. This workshop is filled with tips on how to build a strong and cohesive body of work, followed by an interactive group critique and discussion of sample portfolios.
Participants are encouraged to bring a work-in-progress portfolio or some of their prints. Topics covered include the importance of image quality and consistency of images, tips on how to write a strong artist statement, and portfolio presentation.
PLEASE BRING YOUR PORTFOLIO WITH YOU. The course is limited to 15 participants so each person gets the most benefit.
