    The PRC Portfolio Review Series is an opportunity to individually discuss your work with professionals in the arts including curators, gallerists, critics, photographers, and more. Reviewers bring a wide variety of experience, aesthetic sense, focus, and expertise. To get the most benefit from your portfolio review, check the particular reviewer’s background and request to meet with those who best fit the art and objectives of your work. Each review is 20-minutes long and they are generally held on weekends. Current members are permitted one individual portfolio review per programming year.

    To make the best use of your review, select a number of images from one or two series. Think about what you want out of the session, and let the reviewer know so you can get the most value from the experience.  Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled review. Prints are always preferable to digital images. If you prefer showing digital images, please bring your own viewing device to make sure that you and the reviewer will be able to see them.
