Nov 20 is Deadline to Register for Portfolio Reviews

PhotoNola: Portfolio Reviews
December 1 & 2, 2007

The New Orleans Photo Alliance is proud to offer
Portfolio Reviews as part of the Second Annual PhotoNOLA. Portfolio
Reviews are a wonderful opportunity for photographers of all levels to
begin important relationships with established professionals in the
photographic field. One-on-one twenty-minute meetings with gallery
owners, editors, publishers and museum curators from around the U.S.
provide photographers with networking opportunities, critical advice,
and guidance for bringing their work to a larger audience.

The Portfolio Reviews will take place on Dec 1 & 2 at the
International House Hotel, in downtown New Orleans. Participants of
the Portfolio Reviews are eligible to stay at the International House
Hotel at a special PhotoNOLA rate.
