The New Orleans Photo Alliance welcomes photographers to a 2nd Tuesdays at NOPA event designed to help you prepare your portfolios for public presentation. Zack Smith, NOPA Grant Program Chair, and Jennifer Shaw, PhotoNOLA Artistic Director, will engage photographers in a lively discussion (based on years of experience!) on the practical steps necessary to best showcase your work to the public.
Following the presentation, Zack and Jennifer will provide individual consultations to 12 photographers on a first-come, first served basis. Group participants are invited to stay to observe the individual consultations.
Jennifer Shaw is the artistic director of the annual PhotoNOLA Festival and a fine art photographer. Jen’s work is based on both a world observed and a world constructed, often focusing on the fleeting and personal within the sphere of her immediate surroundings.
Her photographs have been featured in Oxford American, Shots, Black + White Photography (UK), NPR, Lenscratch, and PDN, and are included in two recent monographs: Hurricane Story (Chin Music Press, 2011), and Nature/Nurture (North Light Press, 2012). Shaw studied photography at Rhode Island School of Design, teaches film photography at Louise S. McGehee School.
