NEW YORK, NY – October 10, 2013 – The Official Portfolio Review Program at PhotoPlus Expo, presented by the Palm Springs Photo Festival, is the largest and most comprehensive portfolio review program for professional and emerging professional photographers in the United States. The review program will feature more than 175 influential professionals and unlike other review programs, photographers have the ability to select and prioritize the reviewers who will review and critique their work. It is estimated that over 1,600 portfolio reviews will be conducted during PhotoPlus Expo, October 24-26, 2013 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
“Face-to-face meetings can change careers, yet arranging and accessing these personal meetings with specific professionals would be almost impossible if not for this program,” explains Lauren Wendle, vice president and publisher, The Photo Group. “The Official Portfolio Program at PhotoPlus Expo makes this process easy, and affordable. It also helps to create a relationship between reviewer and photographer that will continue long after PhotoPlus Expo is over.”
Participating reviewers are uniquely positioned to offer assignments and other opportunities to photographers including editorial and advertising assignments to professionals with fully focused portfolios, review tightly edited proposals for book publication, or provide exhibition opportunities for fine art photographers who have museum or gallery ready exhibitions to present.
