Portfolio review

for photographers & retouchers

1 1/2 hours

possible in person or online via Zoom, Google Hangouts or Skype

When it comes to a successful portfolio, asking for another opinion is the first step towards improvement. I know how it is: you bring your ideas into life and you love every aspect of your new work because you know how effortful it was. But in the process of creating we all sometimes fall over-board without realising it. While going through your portfolio I will give you my personal opinion and constructive advice based on my own experience, add some ideas and good examples. And the most important: I believe in kindness and you will come out of this with real input instead of frustration.
