We’d like to invite you to join the Photoworks photography community in our next innovative
project. We share your goal to develop and nurture the art of photography in the DC Metro
area. To that end, we’ve gathered a group of Master Photographers to meet on a monthly
basis, and engage in community photo portfolio critiques — offering individualized insight and
thoughtful guidance. We hope you can join us.
WANT TO JOIN US? HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
The series of 6 monthly meet-ups runs from 6:30-8:30PM — Sunday, September 17, 2017
through Sunday, February 18, 2018. Each session features a different Master Photographer
from the Washington Metro Area. The first session (Sunday, 9/17 at 6:30PM) features Min
Enghauser, an award-winning photographer based in Alexandria. Min has a piercing eye for
color and detail, offering intimate and powerful portraits of both the natural and man-made.
The fee for the entire series of 6 gatherings is $100, and includes a personal 25-30 minute
portfolio review with the Master Photographer of your choice. In each session, the 2-4 students
that have signed up for a portfolio review will bring in a cohesive set of images (15-20 prints,
darkroom or digital). Each student receives a public portfolio review with the Master
Photographer, offering individual insight and guidance. We’ll talk about what makes a good
picture, and discuss the direction the student wants to explore. This should help students be
better editors of their own images. Students who are not having their work critiqued that
month are observers of the process; a uniquely valuable and informative experience.
HOW TO REGISTER:
- Our event is listed as “WORKSHOP: Photo Portfolio Review” and lasts for 6 Sessions @ $100
- Choose one Master Photographer for your portfolio review. Sign up with that photographer.
