Portfolio Reviews are Coming!

As many of you know, the PhotoNOLA committee has been hard at work setting up a Portfolio Review, in the vein of FotoFest, photolucida and Review Santa Fe. It will be a two day event taking place on the first weekend of December, Saturday Dec 1 & Sunday Dec 2.

Each participant will get 8 reviews over the course of the weekend. The registration fee will be $400, and we’re aiming to open registration on October 15 – online through the PhotoNOLA website. We’re still finalizing the list of reviewers and sealing the deal on the venue, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up so they can be ready to register once it’s open.
