About this event

Presented by Debra Klomp Ching—a successful NYC Gallery Owner, Art Dealer and a veteran Portfolio Reviewer.

This online webinar will cover the full range of insights and advice, that every photographer attending a portlfolio review should consider. It is informed by the presenter's vast knowledge and experience, gained from attending a range of portfolio review events spanning 1995 – 2022.

As a reviewer—who has subsequently gone on to curate artists into exhibitions, offer gallery representation and made referrals to publishers, writers, curators and consultants—she has a tangible track record to support her valuable insights, advice, and what she advocates and champions.

The presentation will address the following:

  • Overview of portfolio review events in the US and elsewhere.
  • The benefits of attending portfolio review events.
  • A checklist to consider if you're ready and/or it's appropriate to attend.
  • Before the event: Essential Preparation.
  • During the event: Strategic and beneficial actions and behaviour.
  • After the event: Useful follow-up.

Attendees to this webinar will gain an excellent insight, into how to maximize opportunities from attending portfolio review events and make the most of having a one-on-one session with a professional in the photography industry.
