Portfolio Reviews

Price: $25.00 each
The Photoshop World Portfolio reviews are an invaluable opportunity to have your work reviewed by a world renown lineup of industry professionals and photographers. Each in depth review offers you candid appraisals, valuable business insights, and gives you real world, practical advice, on all aspects of your work from our distinguished line up of Photoshop world instructors.

The portfolio you present should be a sampling of your best work. Guidelines to assist you are below.

When signing up for a portfolio review please make sure the email address given is one you check often as this is how you will be notified of your time slot.
All Portfolio Reviews will be held on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 – From 1:30 – 4:30pm.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your review and check in at the desk. You will be guided to your reviewer at the appropriate time. If for any reason you cannot attend your review, please contact us ahead of time.
