APA San Francisco Members Only Portfolio Review
Photo: © 2015 Drew Sherman
American Photographic Artists, San Francisco presents a very special opportunity for APA Photographer Members to meet one-on-one, face-to-face, with insightful and influential Reviewers. This is no ordinary review event at a studio - it’s an exclusive private party just for Pro Photographers and Creatives.
We've lined up an impressive list of world-class Creatives, Agents, Photo Editors and Consultants. You choose three Reviewers to meet with, to help you refine your portfolio, and advance your career. In each 15 minute appointment, you'll be able to show what you do and who you are, and the reviewer will be able to offer you real-world feedback. You can present your finest work on your pad or laptop if you prefer.
We’ve again booked it at the impressive 111 Minna Gallery, around the corner from SFMOMA, and there will be an exclusive, no-host-bar Cocktail Hour at the end of the event, so you can all get to know each other, and begin the collaborative creative process. Unlike other Portfolio Reviews, every photographer member attending will have the opportunity to meet and talk with many of the Reviewers during the exclusive Private Party from 9 to 10 PM.
How it Works
- $150* for three, 15-minute reviews, and admission to the exclusive Private Party with the Reviewers from 9 to 10 PM.
- VERY IMPORTANT, SO PLEASE NOTE: Your THREE Reviewer Appointments will be based upon the order in which the Reviewer Choice lists are received (not when you register/pay). Everyone must please register first, then email us (email@example.com) your TOP TEN Reviewer Choice list ASAP. Please read all of the Event Fundmentals info below.
- This event always sells out quickly. The sooner you register AND send in your prioritized TOP TEN list, the more likely you are to get to meet with your TOP THREE choices. If you wait, it will be too late.
